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

Even a week old Salman-Asin starrer, `Ready`, proved too hot for `X Men : First Class` to handle and although it opened to a decent 50-55 percent at metro multiplexes it was `Ready` which remained the first choice of the audience even during its second weekend!. The other two Bollywood release, Anurag Kashyap’s `Shaitan` and Subhash Ghai’s `Love Express` fared worse but as expected.

The start of Anees Bazmee’s `Ready` has indeed turned out to be earth shaking, and that from East to West and North to South! Not only that, after a huge weekend, the film has managed quite a steady run even during the weekdays. At per the first estimations `Ready` has netted in the range 67-68 crore during the first week, but it can be higher. The film is also doing very well in the Overseas but not on the same level as the Indian run.


 A Strange Love Story  Verdict: Disaster

Needless to add that the other film of the same week, `A Strange Love Story`, is a washout.

 Stanley Ka Dabba  Verdict: Average
