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

The Christmas weekend has gone the predictable way as Farah Khan`s `Tees Maar Khan` has decimated the Kireet Khurana directed `Toonpur Ka Superrhero`. In fact the Akshay-Katrina starrer `Tees Maar Khan` may well have one of the best weekend ever, while the Ajay-Kajol live animation `Toonpur Ka Superrhero` is likely to end up as a losing fare. The third release, Rajshris` `Isi Life Mein...!` is an unmitigated disaster.
