  ´Paying Guest´ Carries The Hopes ; ´Kal Kissne Dekha´ Disappoints!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

With things back on course for the new releases, the coming Friday will witness the release of Subhash Ghai’s Shreyas Talpade and Celina Jaitley starrer `Paying Guest` and Gayatri Patel’s `Let`s Dance`. Given the successful past track record of Ghai-Shreyas ventures, `Paying Guest` is expected to be the front runner, while `Let`s Dance` expected to lag far behind

 Kal Kissne Dekha  Verdict: Opened
 Weekly Earnings: US$13,861  Total Earnings: US$13,861
The first major release after the multiplexes versus producers-distributors nine week face-off was `Kal Kissne Dekha` but there is still nothing to cheer for the industry. The Vashu Bhagnani venture was off to a weak start almost everywhere. Given the high cost of production (around 30 crores) as well as marketing, `Kal Kissne Dekha, is expected to be a loser for all concerned, especially in view of the falling Monday collections.

 Team-The Force  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1.25 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 1.25 crore
ABC Picture Pvt. Ltd.’s Sohail Khan, Yash Tonk and Vrajesh Hirjee starrer, `Team-The Force`, flattered to deceive after a dull start as a slight pick up was noticed in the action belt.

 Anubhav  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.12 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 0.12 crore
The second release of the same week, MMR Entertainment Pvt. Ltd.’s Sanjay Suri starrer, `Anubhav`, was a non starrer from the opening day.

 Maruti Mera Dost  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.28 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 0.28 crore
The last release of the same week, Contiloe Picture P. Ltd.’s `Maruti Mera Dost` was marketed as children’s fare but failed to entice them despite the holidays.

 99  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1.25 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 12.50 crore
 PB Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
