  Enters Luv Sinha Via ´Sadiyaan´ ; New Releases Fail ; LSD Hits The Bulls-Eye!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

The week will see the debut of Poonam and Shatrughan Sinha’s son Luv. The film in question is the Raj Kanwar directed, `Sadiyaan`. Giving company to `Sadiyaan` will be the Dimple, Nana and Shetty starrer, `Tum Milo To Sahi` and Bipasha Basu`s `Pankh`. Unfortunately none of the three releases are expected to make much of an impact!

 Hum Tum Aur Ghost  Verdict: -
 Weekly Earnings: UK£32,298  Total Earnings: UK£32,298
Last week saw the release of Arshad Warsi’s maiden production venture, `Hum Tum Aur Ghost`. Although it fared the best amongst all the new releases, the collections were nothing to write home about.


 Well Done Abba  Verdict: -
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 PB Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Shyam Benegal  Producer: Mahesh Ramanathan

The Shyam Benegal directed `Well Done Abba` started slowly but showed signs of a slight pick up over the weekend, at good cinemas.

 Love Sex Aur Dhokha  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 6.60 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 6.60 crore
 PB Rating: 6.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17

 Starring: Arya Banerjee, Neha Chauhan, Anshuman Jha, Atul Mongia, Shruti, Amit Sial, Herry Tangdi and Raj Kumar Yadav,
 Genre: Emotional  Recommended Audience: Adult
In the wake of the IPL fever, the only film that has succeeded is Dibaker Banerjee’s `Love Sex Aur Dhokha`. The film has done especially well in Delhi-U.P. and East Punjab. The low budget (below 2 crore!) film is an unquestionable success and is a profitable venture for all concerned.


 Shaapit  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 5.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 5.50 crore
Vikram Bhatt’s `Shaapit` could not quite impress. The film will be lucky to even recover its costs.

 Lahore  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: Rs. 1 crore  Total Earnings: Rs. 1 crore
Wrong release timing and lack of star value resulted in `Lahore` managing to obtain rather poor collections. The extremely well made film is a commercial failure.

 Atithi Tum Kab Jaaoge?  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 3.20 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 26.70 crore ; UK£118,136 ; US$2,15,132
The Ajay, Konkona and Paresh starrer, `Atithi Tum Kab Jaaoge?` manages to show a steady performance and is one of the rare successses of the year. The film though has been rejected in the Overseas.

 My Name Is Khan  Verdict: Hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.40 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 74.30 crores; UK£2,602,781 ; US$3,991,261

Karan Johar’s Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer,`My Name Is Khan`, managed to trickle in low level steady numbers! The film continues its Overseas blockbuster run.
