  ´Tees Maar Khan´ Stutters After A Superb Weekend ; ´Toonpur Ka Superrherro´ Sinks Without A Trace!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

It was an almost open week with just Jackie Shroff`s `Bhoot And Friends`. The film had very poor collections and it benefitted the older releases like `Tees Maar Khan` and `Band Baaja Baaraat` (which got additional shows).

 Tees Maar Khan  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK£318,419 ; US $741,162  Total Earnings: UK£318,419 ; US $741,162
 PB Rating: 2.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Farah Khan  Producer: Shirish Kunder, Ronnie Screwvala, Twinkle Khanna
 Music: Vishal-Shekhar, Shirish Kunder  Lyrics: Shirish Kunder, Vishal Dadlani, Anvita Dutt Guptan
 Starring: Akshay Kumar, Akshaye Khanna, Katrina Kaif, Raghu Ram, Rajiv Laxman and Arya Babbar
 Genre:  Recommended Audience:
The Christmas release, Farah Khan`s 50-55 crore `Tees Maar Khan`, set a blistering pace and ended up with the second best weekend ever (after `Dabangg). The trade however feels that that due to all the negativity about the film, it will not be able to sustain at the same level, but given the huge weekend, it will end up as a profitable venture. The Akshay-Katrina starrer has dissapointed in the Overseas, given the extended festive weekend.


 Toonpur Ka Superrhero  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The other Christmas release, the 25-30 crore live animation project, `Toonpur Ka Superrhero`, saw extremely dull collections and despite some positive feedbacks, sank without a trace. The Ajay-Kajol starrer is also a washout in the Overseas.

 Issi Life Mein..!  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The limited release venture, Rajshri`s `Issi Life Mein..!` had a very poor start and was rejected from the first show itself.

 No Problem  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 7 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs.29crore ; UK£215,000 ; US$327,000
Meanwhile Anees Baazmee’s `No Problem` fell heavily during the second week, extinguishing the remaining hopes of any recovery. The film has also under-performed in the Overseas.

 Band Baaja Baaraat  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.7.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 17 crore ; UK £59,628
 PB Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Maneesh Sharma  Producer: Aditya Chopra
 Music: Salim-Sulaiman  Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya
 Starring: Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma, Manmeet Singh, Manish Choudhary, Neeraj Sood.
 Genre:  Recommended Audience:
Yash Raj’s `Band Baaja Baaraat` held up quite well and came up with steady medium end collections during it’s second week. The film is now an unquestionable success. Unfortunately `Band Baaja Baaraat` has been rejected in the Overseas.
