  New Releases Disappoint ; ´Golmaal 3´ Decimates ´Action Replayy´
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

This week saw a number of new films- Jimmy Sheirgill’s `A Flat`, the Tanushree Dutta starrer `Raama-The Saviour` and `Dunno Y... Na Jaane Kyun`. With the Diwali releases, especially `Golmaal 3` still quite strong, the new incumbents have not found any takers.

 Golmaal 3  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK£259,611 ; US$626,432  Total Earnings: UK£259,611 ; US$626,432
 PB Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Rohit Shetty  Producer: Dhillin Mehta
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Kumaar
 Starring: Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, Kunal Khemu, Ratna Pathak, Mithun Chakraborty, Johny Lever, Sanjay Mishra, Vrajesh Hirjee
 Genre:  Recommended Audience:
The much awaited Diwali battle between Ajay Devgn’s `Golmaal 3` and the Akshay Kumar starrer `Action Replayy` was expected to be in favour of G3 but not as one sided as it actually turned out to be during the opening weekend. `Golmaal 3` has also done very good business (for the star cast) in the Overseas.

 Action Replayy  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK £154,911 ; US$300,000  Total Earnings: UK £154,911 ; US$300,000
 PB Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Vipul Shah  Producer: Blockbuster Entertainment, Hari Om Entertainment, PVR Pictures
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil
 Starring: Akshay Kumar, Aishwarya Rai, Aditya Roy Kapoor
 Genre: Comedy  Recommended Audience: General
After a somewhat disappointing Friday `Action Replayy` picked up substantially on Saturday only to see indications of a fall on Sunday itself. Surprisingly, despite the presence of stars like Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the film lost to `Golmaal 3` even in the Overseas with very ordinary collections.

 Rakht Charitra  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: Rs. 1.75 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 8.50 crore
After a below par opening week Ram Gopal Varma’s `Rakht Charitra` saw a huge fall in the second. The film will now have to depend on the Telugu version to take it to safety.

 Jhootha Hi Sahi  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Es. 11 crore ; UK£78,275
 PB Rating: 5.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Abbas Tyrewala  Producer: Madhu Mantena
 Music: A.R. Rahman  Lyrics: Abbas Tyrewala
 Starring: John Abraham, Pakhi, R Madhavan, Raghu Ram & Nandana Sen
 Genre: Comedy  Recommended Audience: General
Meanwhile the collections of Abbas Tyrewala’s `Jhootha Hi Sahi` crashed further. The John Abraham starrer has also been totally rejected in the Overseas.

 Robot  Verdict: Average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.80 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 21.80 crore ; UK£750,500 ; US$2,166,178
 PB Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: S. Shankar  Producer: Kalanidhi Maran, Hansraj Saxena
 Music: A.R.Rahman  Lyrics: Swanand Kirkire
 Starring: Rajinikanth, Aishwarya Rai, Danny Denzongpa
 Genre: Action  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Concluding yet again with Shankar’s Rajnikanth starrer `Robot`, the film keeps moving on, even in its Hindi version. Of course the Tamil version `Endhiran` is a blockbuster. The film (Hindi, Tamil, Telugu) is a huge Overseas success.
