While last Friday`s releases were hit hard by the nightmare of the Bombay mayhem that the entire country witnessed, Onir`s Sanjay Suri, Sharman Joshi and Chitrangda Singh starrer, `Sorry Bhai`, was a non–starter from the first show itself.

 Starring: Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Zayed Khan, Boman Irani, Aushima Sawhney
 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Subhash Ghai`s Anil, Salman, Katrina and Zayed starrer `Yuvvraaj` could not improve its ordinary start, and that reflected in its very ordinary collections, both in India and Overseas. Owing to its huge prices `Yuvvraaj` is a big failure. The film has also been rejected in the Overseas.

 Genre: Comedy  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
In its second week, Karan Johar`s Tarun Mansukhani directed `Dostana` dropped at most places but is comparatively better in big cities like Bombay, Delhi , Calcutta and Bangalore, though the fall is also quite significant here. Due to its huge procurement price, the film still an average. The Abhishek, John, Priyanka and Kirron starrer is a huge in the Overseas.

 Golmaal Returns  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.55 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 54 crores ; UK$529,221
The collections of Rohit Shetty`s `Golmaal Returns` are fast diminishing. The film has fared decently in the UK.
