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

 Spider-Man 3  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
With a high number of 700 prints including those in Hindi and regional languages, `Spider-Man 3` is expected to take a good start at the Indian box-office.

 Yatra  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Gautam Ghoshe`s long in the making Rekha-Nana starrer `Yatra` is a film for the festival circuits. Despite some lovely compositions by Khayyam, `Yatra` will only manage to get good reviews but achieve nothing significant at the ticket window.

 Ta Ra Rum Pum  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK $463,022 ; US $425,102  Total Earnings: UK $463,022 ; US $425,102
 PB Rating: 5.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 401 unique users): 5.15
 Director: Siddharth Raj Anand  Producer: Aditya Chopra/Yash Raj Films
 Music: Vishal-Shekhar  Lyrics: Javed Akhtar
 Starring: Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukherjee, Jaaved Jaffrey, Angelina Idnani, Ali Haji, Victor Banerjee, and Shruti Seth
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
A good opening for Yash Raj`s Sidhdharth Anand directed `Ta Ra Rum Pum` was taken for granted by all sections of the trade and most sections of the media. However, while the single screens were poor, the multiplexes were much better and picked up further on Saturday and Sunday. In the Overseas , the Saif Rani starrer would have been called a good starter but once again given the Yash Raj name it is below the mark.

 Kya Love Story Hai  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 3 crores ; UK $10,457  Total Earnings: Total Earnings: India Rs. 3 crores ; UK $91,466
The Tusshar-Ayesha starrer `Kya Love Story Hai` could not recover from its poor start and went from bad to worse as the week progressed. If things continue like this Ayesha Takia may soon become an unlucky mascot.

 Bheja Fry  Verdict: Hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2.35 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 4.60 crores
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17

 Music:  Lyrics:
 Starring: Vinay Pathak, Ranvir Shourie, Rajat Kapoor, Sarika, Milind Soman, Tom Alter, and Bhairavi Goswami
 Genre: Comedy  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
The surprise hit of 2007, the shoestring budget `Bheja Fry` is stronger in its second week as compared to the first one. A rare phenomenon indeed! Instead of falling, the collections have improved at some places. Another decent week and it may become the biggest hit of the year.

 Namastey London  Verdict: Hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1.75 crores ; UK $9,954  Total Earnings: India Rs 35.75 crores ; UK $1,723,202 ; US $ 1,207,007

Vipul Shah`s biggest hit in India and Overseas, the Akshay-Katrina starrer `Namastey London` continues its steady run, even in the fifth week. The unquestionable hit is already a super hit in Delhi-UP, East Punjab and Rajasthan. In the Overseas `Namastey London` is a superhit and Bollywood`s biggest earner of 2007 in the UK
