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

From this week not only will the IPL matches take away the audience to the stadium, glued to their TV sets but even cinemas will be telecasting the matches live on the big screen. Amidst all that macho man Sunny Deol teams up with super actor Irfaan Khan and National Award winner Konkona Sen Sharma in `Right Yaaa Wrong`, this week’s major offering from the Ghai stable. Friday will also see Moser Baer Entertainment Ltd.’s `Hide And Seek` and the new cast venture, `Trump Card`. It is but obvious that `Right Yaaa Wrong` will be the front runner as compared to the other releases.

 Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK£52,382 ; US$101,226  Total Earnings: UK£52,382 ; US$101,226
Last Friday`s `Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?` saw the best start, though it ranged from dull to average. But the good thing is that due to the positive word of mouth, the film picked up over the weekend with each day showing a marked improvement over the previous one, leading to a healthy 3-day collection. The film is poor in the Overseas.


 Road, Movie  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
From the other releases Studio 18’s `Road, Movie` got positive reviews but a slow start, and given the fact that it was released selectively, nothing big is expected commercially at this stage.

 Rokkk  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The third release of last week, `Rokkk`, appealed to its target ‘horror’ audience though only at select single screens.

 Teen Patti  Verdict: Flop

 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: General
The fate of Hinduja Ventures and Serendipity Films’ `Teen Patti` became clear during the first weekend itself, as the film showed no pick up after a very ordinary start. The film has also been rejected in the Overseas.

 Karthik Calling Karthik  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 13.50 crore; UK£ 18,421; US$54,269  Total Earnings: India Rs. 13.50 crore; UK £107,409 ; US$262,511

Even `Karthik Calling Karthik`, after some promise during the opening weekend, fell heavily during the weekdays. All the same it did manage some decent numbers from `A` centres. The film is just about alright in the Overseas.

 My Name Is Khan  Verdict: Hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 6 crore ; UK£ 87,141; US$ 1,29,122  Total Earnings: India Rs.71.10 crore ; UK£2,479,880 ; US$3,834,048

In the end, coming to Karan Johar’s `My Name Is Khan`, the film showed more legs than many had expected and predicted. Even it the third week the film manages significant collections. The Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer continues its blockbuster Overseas run.
