Box Office Report for the Week - 24 Apr 2009
  Oldies Get Prolonged Run ; ´Dashavtar´ Fails!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

The producers-distributors versus multiplexes game of one-upmanship continues without a recess or solution. As a result older releases like `8 X 10 Tasveer`, `Aa Dekhen Zara`, `Ek-The Power of One` have had a much longer run that they deserve! In addition to that the current week is dominated by a host of dubbed films.

The Kamal Haasan-Asin starrer, `Dashavtar` (dubbed) saw a week opening across India and the film has not been appreciated anywhere.

`Coffee House` is a total loss from the word go.
