  ´Apartment´ To Take On ´ ´Muskurake Dekh Zara´ ; ´Phoonk2´ Fails To Emulate ´Phoonk´; ´Paathshaala´ Fails!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

This week will see Som Shekhar’s `Muskurake Dekh Zara`, the Tanushree Dutta starrer `Apartment`, the animated `Bird Idol` and a host of other smaller releases like `City of Gold-Mumbai 1982 Ek Ankahi Kahani`, `Musaa` etc. The reason is obvious, the dreaded IPL is getting over this Sunday! One feels that it will be an interesting straight clash between Jagmohan Mundhra’s `Apartment` and `Muskurake Dekh Zara`.

 Phoonk 2  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Last Friday’s Milind Gadagkar directed `Phoonk 2` had a dull start, with better collections at single screens (especially North). The films showed some improvement on Saturday and Sunday but it was not enough. Still `Phoonk 2` is likely to break even thanks to its small budget.


 Paathshaala  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: £29,000  Total Earnings: £29,000
 Director: Milind Ukey  Producer: Shaira Khan
 Music: Hanif Shaikh  Lyrics: Hanif Shaikh
 Starring: Nana Patekar, Shahid Kapoor, Ayesha Takia, Saurabh Shukla, Sushant Singh

The Milind Ukey directed `Paathshaala` could not quite impress. There was an improvement on Saturday and Sunday but overall the film will not be able to break even. `Paathshaala` has also been rejected in the Overseas.

 Prince  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 15.75 crore ; UK£127,000  Total Earnings: India Rs. 15.75 crore ; UK£127,000

 Music: Sachin Gupta  Lyrics: Sameer
 Starring: Vivek Oberoi, Kookie V Gulati, Aruna Sheilds, Nandana Sen, Isiah

Vivek Oberoi’s `Prince` has done reasonably well but not enough, after the weekend and will not be able to recover its high cost (Rs. 50 crore). `Prince` is so-so in the Overseas.

 Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 3.85 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 3.85 crore
Meanwhile Milap Zaveri’s `Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai` has not been appreciated. The Ritesh-Genelia starrer has also been rejected in the Overseas.
