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

The week saw the release of Madhavan-Kangna`s `Tanu Weds Manu` and the children`s film `Satrangee Parachute`. While `Tanu Weds Manu` saw a decent start (mainly in North & Central India), `Satrangee Parachute` had no takers. Trade is hopeful that despite the ICC World Cup Cricket `Tanu Weds Manu` will score at the turnstile!

 7 Khoon Maaf  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK£46,746 ; US$165,000  Total Earnings: UK£46,746 ; US$165,000

 Genre: Thriller  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Just like most of the recent releases, after a slow start Vishal Bhardwaj’s `7 Khoon Maaf` too showed some improvement over the weekend. However the pick up was not substantial and given the fact that `7 Khoon Maaf` is a 22 crore film it will have to improve further and more importantly perform well in the coming weeks as well. `7 Khoon Maaf` has been rejected in the Overseas.


 Kaccha Limboo And Masti Express  Verdict: Disasters
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The other two releases of the week, `Kaccha Limboo` And `Masti Express` have been rejected.

 Patiala House  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.24.50 crore ; UK£114,544 ; US$ 147,514  Total Earnings: India Rs.24.50 crore ; UK£508,500 ; US$495,000
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Nikhil Advani  Producer: Bhushan Kumar, Mukesh Talreja
 Music: Shankar Ehsaan Loy  Lyrics: Anvita Dutt Guptan
 Starring: Rishi Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia, Akshay Kumar, Anushka Sharma, Tinnu Anand, Soni Razdan, Prem Chopra, Masood Akhtar, Armaan Kirmani, Hard Kaur, Usmaan Qureshi and Devansh Daswani.
 Genre: Social  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
On paper the run of Nikhil Advani’s `Patiala House` appeared quite steady with no alarming crash after the weekend. Unfortunately the weekend (15.25 crore) was itself quite below par (for an Akshay Kumar starrer) and so it is a disappointing opening week followed by a poor second weekend and not much hope for `Patiala House`. The film though has improved in the UK and is reasonably steady in the US.

 Yeh Saali Zindagi  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 10 crore
Sudhir Mishra`s `Yeh Saali Zindagi` saw a big fall at the ticket window after an encouraging first week. The film will be lucky to break even and that too after accounting for the non-theatrical rights.

 Dil To Baccha Hai Ji  Verdict: Average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 28.25 crore
Madhur Bhandarkar`s `Dil To Baccha Hai Ji` fell heavily but still managed some more rewards for the distributors. As `Dil To Baccha Hai Ji` has been sold to the distributors for a very reasonable 13 crore, the Ajay-Emraan starrer is now an average fare. The film though has been rejected in the Overseas.
