Box Office Report for the Week - 18 Sep 2009
  Keen ´Eid´ Battle On The Cards, But It´s Advantage´ Wanted´!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

With hardly any big releases of late, things are getting interesting as this Friday will see an interesting clash between two biggies; Yash Raj Films Pvt. Ltd.’s `Dil Bole Hadippa` and S.K. Films Enterprises’ `Wanted`. Given the unique and sustained promos, with emphasis on Salman’s action image and care-a-damn attitude, `Wanted` seems to hold the edge. But `Dil Bole Hadippa` too is backing on Shahid Kapoor’s new image of a reliable solo bet at the box-office and its theme of the passion of India, cricket. Both the new releases will benefit from the almost 5-day `Eid` weekend`.

 New releases  Verdict: Failures
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Last Friday’s multiple releases, `Baabarr`, `Vaada Raha... I promise`, `Ruslaan` and `Aamras` have disappointed collectively, barring to an extent `Vaada Raha... I promise` (with dull collections) and `Baabarr`(at single screens of North India).


 Fox  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs 2.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs 2.50 crore
 Director: Deepak Tijori  Producer: Deepak Tijori
 Music: Monty Sharma  Lyrics: Sandeep Nath
 Starring: Sunny Deol, Arjun Rampal, Udita Goswami, Sagarika Ghatge
 Genre: Thriller  Recommended Audience:
The Deepak Tijori directed `Fox` has failed to appeal to the audience despite some praise for the movie as well as the performances.

 Aagey Se Right  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2.75 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 2.75 crore
The Shreyas Talpade starrer, `Aagey Se Right`, manages to show some decent numbers in Bombay, but that is about all. It is a box-office dud for all concerned

 Three -Love Lies Betrayal  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: Rs. 0.80 crore  Total Earnings: Rs. 0.80 crore
Vikram Bhatt’s `Three -Love Lies Betrayal` has not clicked with the audience and is an unmitigated disaster.

 Kaminey  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 43 crore ; UK £269,816 ; US$1,291,827

 Starring: Shahid Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Amole Gupte, Deb Mukherjee, Rajatabha Dutta
 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
The Vishal Bhardwaj directed Shahid, Priyanka and Amole starrer, `Kaminey`, is still getting good collections from Bombay. The film has also done wonderfully in the US.

 Life Partner  Verdict: Average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1.75 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 20.75 crore ; UK£274,488
`Life Partner` continues to show amazing legs with some quite steady collections. The film has also grossed decently in the UK.
