This week`s new release, `Housefull`, has embarked on an expected big start. In the process the Sajid Khan directed Akshay Kumar, Deeika Padukone, Arjun Rampal, Lara Dutta, Ritesh Deshmukh , Boman Irani and Jia Khan starrer has finished the already bleak prospects of Jag Mundhra`s `Chase`.

 Apartment  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
From the record number of releases, it was just the Tanushree Dutta starrer `Apartment` that saw some limited patronage in West Bengal/Assam, Rajasthan and to a lesser extent at the single screens of Delhi-U.P.

 Muskurake Dekh Zara  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Som Shekhar’s `Muskurake Dekh Zara`, with no stars to boast of, was rejected.

The Milind Ukey directed `Paathshaala`, could not sustain beyond a decent weekend, though the collections were somewhat steady on the lower side. The Shahid-Genelia starrer is a washout in the Overseas.

 Phoonk2  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 5.25 crore  Total Earnings: will scrape through to a recovery status with the help of the non-theatrical rights.
Milind Gadagkar’s `Phoonk2` could not quite emulate the success of `Phoonk`, but will scrape through to a recovery status with the help of the non-theatrical rights.
