  ´Mardaani´ Impresses ; ´Singham Returns´ Is Super Hit ; ´Entertainment´ Survives ; ´Kick´ Is Blockbuster
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

This week will see the release of Kunal Deshmukh’s Emraan Hashmi starrer, `Raj Natwarlal`. With the usual hype missing and the popular music, which has always been a hallmark of all Emraan-Kunal films (`Jannat` etc) too not being the case here, the film is not expected to set the cash registers ringing, in a big way.

 Mardaani  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK£47,000 ; US$170,000  Total Earnings: UK£47,000 ; US$170,000

Last week witnessed the release of Yash Raj Films’ Rani Mukerji starrer, `Mardaani`. Though the film started on a dull note (due to another cop drama `Singham Returns`), it saw a decent pick up and has maintained quite well in the weekdays too. The film has done well (for a female solo) in the overseas.


 Katiyabaaz  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The only other film of the week that received critical acclaim, Vikramaditya Motwane’s `Katiyabaaz`, could not make a mark commercially.

Meanwhile Rohit Shetty’s Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer, `Singham Returns`, maintained very well (after a thumping 75 crore weekend) even during the weekdays. The film is also Ajay Devgn’s biggest overseas (solo) venture.

Checking out Farhad-Sajid’s Akshay Kumar starrer, `Entertainment`, after a decent 55crore opening week, the film saw a huge fall (in the second week) but still managed decent numbers, given the `Singham Returns` wave. The film has not performed well in the overseas.
