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

The new releases of this week, Ashutosh Gowariker’s `Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se` and the Ram Gopal Varma directed `Rakhta Chartira 2` failed to embark even on a half decent start. No doubt `Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se` got some good critical acclaim but failed to draw the audience in. The third release of the same week, `Phas Gaya Re Obama` got good reviews and audience appreciation but the limited release hampers its prospects too.

 Break Ke Baad  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK£85,709 ; US$310,329  Total Earnings: UK£85,709 ; US$310,329
 PB Rating: 4.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Danish Aslam  Producer: Kunal Kohli
 Music: Vishal-Shekhar  Lyrics: Prasoon Joshi
 Starring: Imran Khan,Deepika Padukone,Shahana Goswami,Yudishtir Urs,Navin Nischol, Lillete Dubey
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: General
The performance of the Imran-Deepika starrer, `Break Ke Baad`, was a bit of an anticlimax, especially after the success of Imran`s `I Hate Luv Storys`. The below 30 crore film saw a dull to weak start across India and there was no improvement during the weekend. Having said that the impressive recoveries from non-theatrical revenue streams may just about make it an earning proposition, despite a poor theatrical run. The film has also disappointed in the Overseas.


 Shahrukh Bola Khoobsurat Hai Tu  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: Indian Rs. 0.10 crore  Total Earnings: Indian Rs. 0.10 crore
Makrand Deshpande`s `Shahrukh Bola Khoobsurat Hai Tu` is an unmitigated disaster.

 Guzaarish  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 22 crore ; UK£ 48,950 ; US$188,085  Total Earnings: India Rs. 22 crore ; UK£303,982 ; US$890,678

 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: General
Meanwhile Sanjay Leela Bansali’s `Guzaarish` could not really improve upon its below the mark opening and saw ordinary numbers. The Hrithik-Aishwarya starrer has also disapoointed in the Overseas, though it is somewhat better in the Overseas.

 Golmaal 3  Verdict: Blockbuster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 9 crore ; UK£ 7,259  Total Earnings: India Rs. 103.50 crore ; UK£628,903 ; US $1,132,192

Moving on, Rohit Shetty’s `Golmaal 3` is still doing good business despite opposition from new releases. The Ajay-Kareena starrer has also impressed in the Overseas.

 Action Replayy  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.60 crore ; UK£ 2,665  Total Earnings: India Rs. 28.60 crore ;UK£396,274 ; US$410,262
