Box Office Report for the Week - 13 Jan 2010
  New Releases Disappoint Again ; ´3 Idiots´ Keeps Shattering Records!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

This Friday will see the release of Shahid –Genelia’s `Chance Pe Dance` and the Rajpal Yadav starrer, `Hello.. Hum Lallann Bol Rahe Hain`. Unfortunately, despite all its rich look and good cinematic values, Ken Ghosh’s `Chance Pe Dance` may just about be an average fare, more so due to lack of good promotion, while `Hello.. Hum Lallann Bol Rahe Hain` will sink without a trace.

Last week’s Mudazzir Aziz directed `Dulha Mil Gaya` saw a very weak to poor start, despite the presence of Fardeen, Sushmita and Shah Rukh Khan in an extended cameo. The film has also been rejected in the Overseas.

The other release of last Friday, Jugal Hansraj`s Priyanka Chopra and Uday Chopra venture, `Pyaar Impossible!`, saw a dull to poor start. The film has horrifyingly low collections in the Overseas.

 Earlier releases  Verdict: Disasters
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Pritish Nandy`s `Raat Gayi Baat Gayi?`, Padmini Kolhapure`s comeback vehicle `Bolo Raam` and Celina Jaitley`s `Accident On Hill Road` are all miserable failures.

 Genre: Comedy  Recommended Audience:
Meanwhile, records keep tumbling like nine pins for Rajkumar Hirani`s Aamir, Madhavan, Sharman, Boman and Kareena starrer, `3 Idiots`, even in the second week. In fact, its second week numbers in India will be difficult to emulate for most of the forthcoming releases in their opening week! The film is record breaking in the US and overall superb in the Overseas!

 Paa  Verdict: Hit

In the end, Balki’s Amitabh, Abhishek and Vidya starrer, `Paa`, manages some more significant collections. Unfortunately, the film has been rejected in the Overseas.
