  Dull Start But Pick Up For ´Dum Maaro Dum´ ; ´Teen Thay Bhai´ Is A Washout ; ´Thank You´ Has A Steady Run!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

Friday saw Rohan Sippy’s Abhishek Bachchan starrer `Dum Maaro Dum` and Walt Disney Picture’s Darsheel Safary superhero flick `Zokkomon`. The battle was comprehensively and expectedly won by `Dum Maaro Dum` as `Zokkomon` found no takers.

 Dum Maaro Dum  Verdict: Opened
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 Director: Rohan Sippy  Producer: Ramesh Sippy
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Jaidep Sahni
 Starring: Abhishek Bachchan, Rana Daggubati, Prateik Babbar, Bipasha Basu Aditya Pancholi Monty Munford
 Genre: Action  Recommended Audience: General
The opening of Rohan Sippy’s `Dum Maaro Dum` was never expected to be bumper, though a 50-70 percent initial was very much on the cards. But the start of the Abhishek Bachchan, Bipasha Basu, Rana Daggubati and Prateik starrer turned out to be much lower than expected and varied between 20-40 percent. However, thanks to some good reviews and decent word of mouth the film did show an appreciation in the matinee and evening shows. If `DMD` can capitalize and pick up more during the weekend there can still be a turnaround in it’s fortune.


 Teen Thay Bhai  Verdict: Washout
The opening of PVR Pictures Ltd. and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s `Teen Thay Bhai` was expected to be ordinary, but unfortunately it turned out pathetic! The film has nil prospects at the box-office.

 Thank You  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 30.50 crore ; UK£ 76,500 ; US$ 86,000  Total Earnings: India Rs. 30.50 crore ; UK£346,000 ; US $392,194
As we had said in our last report, after a slow start Anees Bazmee’s `Thank You` showed a healthy growth during the weekend and performed quite decently during the weekdays. The film also had steady second weekend. The Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty , Irrfan Khan, Sonam Kapoor and Rimi Sen starrer, `Thank You` has ordinary collections in the Overseas, though it is steady on the lower side here!

 Game  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.75 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 7.60 crore ; UK£ 115,000 ; US$132,000
 PB Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Abhinay Deo  Producer: Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani
 Music: Shankar Ehsaan Loy  Lyrics: Javed Akhtar
 Starring: Abhishek Bachchan, Kangna Ranaut, Shergill, Sarah Jane, Gauhar Khan, Boman Irani & Anupam Kher
 Genre: Action  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
The performance of Abhishek-Kangna`s `Game` went from bad to worse. The film has also rejected in the Overseas.

 F.A.L.T.U  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 4.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 21.50 crore
 Director: Remo D’Souza  Producer: Vashu Bhagnani
 Music: Sachin-Jigar  Lyrics: Sameer
 Starring: Jackky Bhagnani, Pooja Gupta, Riteish Deshmukh, Angad Bedi, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Arshad Warsi
 Genre: Comedy  Recommended Audience: General
Concluding with Jackky Bhagnani’s `F.A.L.T.U.`, the film crashed heavily but is a reasonable success for all concerned.
