  New Releases Make Little ´Shor´ ; ´Dum Maaro Dum´ Has Reasonably Steady Week
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

The Friday saw multiple releases in the form of `Shor In The City`, `Chalo Dilli`, `Naughty @40`, `I Am` and `Men Will Be Men`. It was but obvious that the result was always going to catastrophic but it tuned out to be worse than that with only `Shor In The City` and `Chalo Dilli` getting noticable collections.

 Dum Maaro Dum  Verdict: Opened
 Weekly Earnings: UK£116,000 ; US$328,000  Total Earnings: UK£116,000 ; US$328,000
 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 Abhishek Bachchan starrer `Dum Marro Dum` was below par on the opening Friday but overall the first weekend of 16.50 crores (including Thursday paid previews of 80 lakhs) can be termed as decent. The weekdays too saw reasonably steady collections. Unfortunately the film saw little patronage in the Overseas.


 Zokkomon  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The other release of the same week, Darsheel Safary’s `Zokkomon`, has turned out to be a box-office dud.

 Teen Thay Bhai  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2.75 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 2.75 crore
PVR Pictures Ltd. and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s `Teen Thay Bhai` turned out to be poor show. However, thanks to the controlled budget and after accounting for non-theatrical rights, the film may just about break even.

 Thank You  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.11.50 crore ; UK£ 28,354.;US$ 26,797  Total Earnings: India Rs. 42 crore ; UK £428,000 ; US$ 452,000
The collections of Anees Bazmee’s `Thank You` did fall heavily but the film had a decent second week. With some more luck the Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty , Irrfan Khan, Sonam Kapoor and Rimi Sen starrer can still hope for an average tag, though it looks a tad difficult. The film has also under-performed in the Overseas (steady at the lower end).

 F.A.L.T.U  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.2.25 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 23.75 crores
 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
Meanwhile Vashu Bhagnani’s F.A.L.T.U. manages to bring in some more numbers.
