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

This Friday`s saw three new releases, the Rani-Vidya starrer `No One Killed Jessica`, Sayali Bhagat’s `Impatient Vivek` and the Deepal Shaw starrer `Vikalp`. As expected `No One Killed Jessica` was the front runner by a long margin and did quite well at at good cinemas of big cities. The other twoo releases, `Vikalp` and `Impatient Vivek` are all set to be dismal failures.

 New Releases  Verdict: Disasters
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Last week`s two releases, Jackie Shroff`s `Bhoot And Friends` and the fungus laden `Ada .. A Way Of Life` (with music by A.R. Rahman) were both rejected with disdain by the audience.

 Tees Maar Khan  Verdict: Average
 Weekly Earnings: India 50 crore ; UK£ 98,174 ; US$ 1,08,273  Total Earnings: India 50 crore ; UK£625,000 ; US$1,030,502

 Starring: Akshay Kumar, Akshaye Khanna, Katrina Kaif, Raghu Ram, Rajiv Laxman and Arya Babbar
 Genre:  Recommended Audience:
After a superb opening weekend the collections of Farah Khan’s `Tees Maar Khan` started falling from Monday and crashed thereafter. All the same the film has fetched impressive distributors shares of 26-27 crore in the first week itself (thanks mainly to the weekend). The film has ordinary collections (given the holiday phase) in the Overseas. Having said that the Akshay-Katrina starrer will yield a profit of 8-10 crores to UTV (on a total investment of 62 crores), once Overseas, sattelite and other non-theatrical rights are accounted for.

 Toonpur Ka Superrhero  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2.80 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 2.80 crore
With poor collections, the Ajay-Kajol starrer `Toonpur Ka Superrhero` (total investment of 35 crore) turns out to be one of the biggest failures of 2010.

 Issi Life Mein..!  Verdict: Washout
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.80 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 0.80 crore
Unfortunately Rajshri Production Pvt Ltd’s `Issi Life Mein..!` showed no signs of life at all and is a washout.

 Band Baaja Baaraat  Verdict: Above average

Despite stiff competition from new releases , Yash Raj’s `Band Baaja Baaraat` continues to do well. The Anushka-Ranveer starrer though is a washout in the Overseas.
