 Big Brother  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Guddu Dhanoa`s macho-man Sunny Deol and Priyanka Chopra starrer `Big Brother` may fare well in the North and Central India , specially at the single screen . The much delayed movie has some vintage Sunny moments .

 Life Mein Kabhie Kabhiee  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Baba Films` Ajhai Acharya directed Aftab-Dino starrer `Life Mein Kabhie Kabhiee` , may at best hope for some patronage at a few multiplexes .

 Shaka Laka Boom Boom  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK £ 78,552  Total Earnings: UK £ 78,552
 Director: Suneel Darshan  Producer: Suneel Darshan
 Music: Himesh Reshammiya  Lyrics: Sameer
 Starring: Bobby Deol, Upen Patel, Celina Jaitley, Kangna Ranaut, Asrani, and Anupam Kher
 Genre:  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Suneel Darshan`s Bobby-Upen starrer `Shaka Laka Boom Boom` had a so-so start in Bombay and was fair to dull at other places . And this despite a pleasant and popular musical score and some decent performances . The movie may not be a big success , but given the reasonable selling prices , it may get to average status in a few circuits .

 Provoked (E & Hindi dubbed)  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: UK £ 123,678  Total Earnings: UK £ 123,678
Aishwarya Rai`s next release after the highly successful and appreciated `Guru` , `Provoked` (E & Hindi dubbed) , had a dull opening everywhere . However , given the media appreciation and some positive word-of-mouth , the movie still has the merits to pick up .

 Delhii Heights  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs 0.40 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs 0.40 crores
The Jimmy Shegill-Neha Dhupia starrer `Delhii Heights` is a predictable failure .

 Khanna & Iyer  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs 0.08 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs 0.08 crores
Subhash Ghai and Mukta Media`s `Khanna & Iyer` is a trade disaster

Vipul Shah`s 20 crore venture , the Akshay-Katrina starrer `Namastey London` , had a rock steady second week (specially in Delhi-NCR , Bombay and Calcutta) . The movie barely had a fall of around 40 percent from the first to the second week . The movie has the potential to get to a higher status. `Namastey London` is a superhit in the Overseas .

Mira Nair`s Tabu-Irrfan starrer `The Namesake` , with additional prints in the second week , is faring extremely well and has netted 2.70 crores from India . The film will definately move to a higher status . While in the Overseas , the film is a huge hit in the US , though it could not write the same success story in the UK .
