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

This Friday`s solo Hindi release, Priyadarshan’s Akshay Kumar and Trisha Krishnan starrer, `Khatta Meetha`, has been off to a good (Bombay-Maharashtra, Gujarat & U.P.) to dull start (Delhi city, South). Though these are early days the film was expected to open much better though not on the level of `Housefull`.

 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: General
Though Anurag Kashyap`s `Udaan` got a lot of critical acclaim, the opening was just about fair but showed some uptick during the weekend. The low number of prints are another negative.


 Ter Bin Laden  Verdict: Average start
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Ali Zafar`s `Tere Bin Laden` had the best weekend performance, that improved significantly during the weekend. The film is likely to sneak through to success, with additional prints in the second week.

 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 Director: Rahul Dholakia  Producer: Bunty Walia, Jaspreet Singh Walia
 Music: Mithoon  Lyrics: Saeed Quadri, Amitabh Varma (Guest)
 Starring: Sanjay Dutt, Bipasha Basu, Anupam Kher, Kunal Kapoor
 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: General
The performance of the Sanjay Dutt and Bipasah Basu starrer, `Lamhaa`, was below the mark and the film has been rejected.

 Milenge Milenge  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 8.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 8.50 crore ; UK£106,756
 Director: Satish Kaushik  Producer: Boney Kapoor

 Starring: Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Aarti Chhabria, Satish Shah, Delnaz Paul, Kirron Kher, Himani Shivpuri, Satish Kaushik, Sarfaraz Khan, Panini Rajkumar
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: General
Satish Kaushik’s much delayed `Milenge Milenge` has dull collections to show, but the Shahid-Kareena starrer has succeeded on the basis of its non-theatrical (especially sattelite) as the makers are also the worldwide distributors.

 I Hate Luv Storys  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 9 crore ; UK£36,679 ; US$ 32,463  Total Earnings: India Rs. 41 crore ; UK£488,550 ; US$826,561

 Music: Vishal-Shekhar  Lyrics: Anvita Dutt, Kumaar, Vishal
 Starring: Imran Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Sameer Dattani, Samir Soni
 Genre: Comedy  Recommended Audience: General
The collection of Karan Johar’s Punit Malhotra directed Imran-Sonam starrer, `I hate Luv Storys` has crashed, but the objective of making a profit for all concerned has already been achieved during the first weekend itself! The film has also done good business in the Overseas.
