  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

 Delhii Heights  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The movie starring Jimmy Sheirgill , Neha Dhupia , Rohit Roy and directed by Anandkumar , is in the news because of the soul stirring music by Rabbi Shergill . However `Delhii Heights` is not expected to achieve much barring a handful of multiplexes .

 Khanna & Iyer  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Subhash Ghai`s Mukta Media has launched 3 new talents in `Khanna & Iyer` . Of them Aditi Sharma and Sarvar Ahuja are winners of the first `Zee Cine Stars Ki Khoj` while the third one is Hemant . However , their presence may not achieve much for `Khanna & Iyer` .

 Namastey London  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: US $ 578,224 ; £ 238,841  Total Earnings: US $ $578,224 ; £ 238,841

 Starring: Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Upen Patel, Rishi Kapoor, Javed Shiekh, Ritesh Deshmukh
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
As expected Vipul Shah`s Akshay-Katrina starrer has picked up in a big way , after a slow start in Bombay & Nizam specially ( due to the important India-Sri Lanka match) . Surprisingly , even on that day (23rd March) , while Bombay and Nizam were ordinary , Delhi , Rajasthan and C.I. were good and the collections picked up further during the weekdays . Needless to add Akshay`s star power has given it an excellent start in UK and US and is another triumph for the self made actor .


 The Namesake  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: US $ 1,306,819  Total Earnings: US $ 2,640,299

The Tabu-Irrfan Khan starrer won critical acclaims and good reviews but it had a dull to poor start at the box-office in India . However , the movie is rocking US and is a superhit there .

 Starring: Danny Denzongpa, Nana Patekar, Kunal Kapoor, Rimi Sen, and Paresh Rawal.
 Genre:  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Many stars who act with Aamir Khan get this feeling that their hit project means that they have become a star . The talented Kunal Kapoor(`Rang De Basanti`) may well be the latest and despite the cricket frenzy `Hattrick` has failed to strike .The movie is also a flop in the Overseas .

Another release and another flop for Fardeen Khan and not to forget Esha Deol . Time for the two star kids to introspect . The movie is also a flop in the Overseas .

 300 (dubbed)  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.85 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 0.85 crores
