  ´F.A.L.T.U.´ Wins The ´Game´ ; ´Monica´ & ´Happy Husbands´ Rejected!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

Finally the drought is over and Friday saw the release of EROS International and Excel Entertainment’s `Game`, along with Vashu Bhagnani’s `F.A.L.T.U.`. Unfortunately the campus crowd (which forms the major chunk of the cinema audience) decided to forego `Game` and thronged `F.A.L.T.U.`.

 Monica  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Though it was expected that Anup Jalota`s `Monica` would at least find some patronisation in the hinterland, the film failed to do so even there.


 Happy Husbands  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
`Happy Husbands` met a disastrous fate at the ticket window and was taken off after the first couple of shows itself.

 Tanu Weds Manu  Verdict: Hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 3.75 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 36.45 crore ; UK£95,000 ; US$240,000

Moving on, `Tanu Weds Manu` is still quite strong and will end up as a big hit. The Madhavan-Kangna starrer has also done very well in the Overseas, despite a limited release

 7 Khoon Maaf  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.0.20 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs.20 crore ; UK£95,000 ; US$270,000

Checking out Vishal Bhardwaj’s `7 Khoon Maaf`, the film continues to limp despte an open field. The film has also been rejected in the Overseas.

 Patiala House  Verdict: Flop

Concluding yet again (perhaps for the last time) with Nikhil Advani’s `Patiala House`, The Rishi Kapoor, Akshay Kumar and Anushka Sharma starrer has failed commercially, though the losses have been minimal, thanks to the extended run. The film has also under-performed in the Overseas, though it is much better in the UK.
