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

 Ta Ra Rum Pum  Verdict: New
 Total Earnings: UK $52,636
 PB Rating: 5.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Siddharth Raj Anand  Producer: Aditya Chopra/Yash Raj Films
 Music: Vishal-Shekhar  Lyrics: Javed Akhtar
 Starring: Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukherjee, Jaaved Jaffrey, Angelina Idnani, Ali Haji, Victor Banerjee, and Shruti Seth
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
The first release of 2007 from the Yash Raj banner, `Ta Ra Rum Pum`, directed by Sidhdharth Anand, releases this Friday. Given the fact that the makers are also the distributors and going for 15-16 shows daily (at the multiplexes), the Saif-Rani starrer is expected to take a good start at the box-office and specially so in the Overseas.

  Kya Love Story Hai  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK $52,636  Total Earnings: UK $52,636
Though it was expected that the Tusshar-Ayesha starrer, `Kya Love Story Hai` would have a decent start at the ticket window, the shoddily made movie had a poor to weak start.

  Bheja Fry  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2.25 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 2.25 crores
Small can be beautiful and the Vinay Pathak directed `Bheja Fry` proved just that. Given a very low budget of around 60 lakhs, the film has proved to a be good Metro and A centres success.

 Provoked: A True Story(English & dubbed)  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.0.50 crores ; UK $91,745  Total Earnings: India Rs. 1.75 crores ; UK $801,918
Aishwarya Rai`s `Provoked: A True Story(English & dubbed)` failed to improve upon its ordinary first week performance, with the English version too having crashed. Even in the UK, `Provoked: A True Story(English & dubbed)` has fallen appreciably.

 Big Brother  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 5 crores ; UK 4,079  Total Earnings: India Rs. 5 crores ; UK $26,303
As we had said last week, the fungus laden, Sunny-Priyanka starrer `Big Brother` had failed to get released at the multiplexes ( specially in Bombay & Delhi) and the low total is a result of that, but the single screen audiences saved the day for Sunny in the Hindi belt of North and Central India and also East Punjab and Bihar. What is significant to note is that macho-man is still loved for his punches in interiors and by the single screen audiences.

 Namastey London  Verdict: Hit
 Weekly Earnings: : India Rs.3.50 crores : UK $36,721  Total Earnings: India Rs. 34 crores ; US $ 1,207,007 ; UK $1,700,146
 PB Rating: 6.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 411 unique users): 5.12
 Director: Vipul Shah  Producer: Eros/Blockbuster Movie Entertainers
 Music: Himesh Reshammiya  Lyrics: `Javed Akhtar
 Starring: Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Upen Patel, Rishi Kapoor, Javed Shiekh, Ritesh Deshmukh
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Vipul Shah`s biggest success in India and Overseas, the Akshay-Katrina starrer `Namastey London`, continues its dream run with another rock steady week across India. The movie is now an unquestionable hit in India (super hit in Delhi-UP, East Punjab & Rajasthan) and a superhit in the Overseas.
