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

Despite being the solo release of this week the Yogesh Mittal directed Anupam Kher, Pawan Malhotra and Tena Desae starrer `Yeh Faasley` saw a poor start.

 Tanu Weds Manu  Verdict: Opened
 Weekly Earnings: UK £28,000 ; US$100,000  Total Earnings: UK £28,000 ; US$100,000
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 401 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Anand Rai  Producer: Sanjay Singh Films
 Music: Krsna  Lyrics: Raj Shekhar
 Starring: R Madhavan, Kangana Ranaut, Jimmy Shergill, Deepak Dobriyal, Swara Bhasker, Ejaaz Khan, Navni Parihar, K K Raina, Rajendra Gupta and Ravi Kishan
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: General
Just as it was expected and predicted, the Madhavan and Kangna starrer, `Tanu Weds Manu`, started on a sedate note but picked up quite well during the weekend. The film also maintained well later on. The film, even with a limited release, has done decently in the Overseas.


 7 Khoon Maaf  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 15 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 15 crore ; £85,173 ; US$253,274
 PB Rating: 4.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Vishal Bhardwaj  Producer: Ronnie Screwvala and Vishal Bhardwaj
 Music: Vishal Bhardwaj  Lyrics: Gulzar
 Starring: Priyanka Chopra, Neil Nitin Mukesh, John Abraham, Irrfan Khan, Aleksandr Dyachenko, Annu Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Vivaan Shah
 Genre: Thriller  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
It is now obvious that Vishal Bhardwaj’s `7 Khoon Maaf` has been rejected by the masses and has not totally been patronized by the class audience either. The film has also not done well in the Overseas.

 Kaccha Limboo and Masti Express  Verdict: Disasters
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The other two releases of the same week, `Kaccha Limboo` and `Masti Express`, are outright disasters with no significant collections to show.

 Patiala House  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 5.50 crore ; UK£43,178  Total Earnings: India Rs. 30 crore ; UK£650,000 ; US$500,000
 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
Meanwhile the collections of Nikhil Advani’s `Patiala House` continued to slide further. The Akshay-Anushka starrer though is somewhat better in the UK

 Yeh Saali Zindagi  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 11 crore
Concluding with Sudhir Mishra’s `Yeh Saali Zindagi`, the film could not quite capitalize on the lack of competetion.
