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

The coming Friday will see an interesting clash between Ramgopal Varma’s `Phoonk 2` and Milind Ukey’s `Paathshaala`. One feels that given the superb promos and the `Phoonk` brand value, `Phoonk 2` will be the front runner followed by `Paathshaala`.
