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

After three (almost!) open weeks with `Dabangg`, this Friday saw a number of releases, prominent being Ranbir-Katrina’s `Anjaana Anjaani`, the Rajnikanth and Aishwarya starrer `Enthiran-The Robot` and Aatish Kapadia’s `Khichdi-The Movie`.

 Anjaana Anjaani  Verdict: Opened
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 PB Rating: 5.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 401 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Siddharth Raj Anand  Producer: Sajid Nadiadwala
 Music: Vishal-Shekhar  Lyrics: Vishal D, Neelesh M, Amitabh B, Anvita D, Kumaar, Kausar M
 Starring: Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Zayed Khan
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: General
`Anjaana Anjaani` saw a good start at the multiplexes of centres like Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Delhi-NCR. Expectedly the opening was not on the same level at the single screens.


 Enthiran - The Robot  Verdict: Opened
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Shankar`s `Enthiran - The Robot` released in three languages, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. The opening was superb in Southern states but was dull at many of the remaining places.

 Khichdi -The Movie  Verdict: Opened
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Aatish Kapadia`s `Khichdi-The Movie` saw a poor response, even at places where it was expected to fare well-Gujarat-Maharashtra. The audience preferred to watch `Anjaana Anjaani` and even `Robot`.

 Dabangg  Verdict: All time blockbuster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 34.50 crore ; UK£65,843 ; US$134,024  Total Earnings: India Rs. 115.25 crore ; UK£700,000 ; US $1,258,932
 PB Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Abhinav Kashyap  Producer: Arbaaz Khan
 Music: Sajid Wajid, Lalit Pandit  Lyrics: Faiz Anwar, Lalit Pandit, Jalees Sherwani
 Starring: Salman Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Sonu Sood, Vinod Khanna Dimple Kapadia
 Genre: Action  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
It took `Dabangg` just two weeks to zip past the final tally of `Ghajini`. The film did see a heavy fall of around 58-59 percent, but that hardly matters as the two week distributors’ share is a whopping Rs. 65 crore! The Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and Sonu Sood starrer has also done wonders in the Overseas despite its desi theme.

 We Are Family  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1.25 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs.21.50 crore ; UK£678,646 ;US$631,276
 PB Rating: 5.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Siddharth Malhotra  Producer: Karan Johar
 Music: Shankar Ehsaan Loy  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil and Anvita Dutt
 Starring: Kajol, Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal
 Genre: Family  Recommended Audience: General
Karan Johar’s Siddharth Malhotra directed `We Are Family` continues to crash further. The Kajol, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal starrer will have to rely on non-theatrical rights for recovery. `We Are Family` is also below the mark in the Overseas circuit (for a Karan-Kajol project).
