With `Mausam` having been postponed, this week’s only new release, the Ashok Nanda directed `Rivaaz` got some appreciation from it’s target audience, but unfortunately the same could not be translated into collections.

 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: General
Last week’s Katrina Kaif, Imran Khan and Ali Zafar starrer, `Mere Brother Ki Dulhan`, saw a pronounced fall (Tuesday onwards) after a good weekend of about 25.60 crores. But the film is already an above average success for it’s producer and worldwide distributor, Yash Raj Films, netting. The film has also done well in the Overseas.

After a gigantic first week, the collections of Salman Khan’s Eid-Ganesh Chaturthi bonanza, `Bodyguard`, crashed badly in the second week. But that makes no difference to the blickbuster status of the film! `Bodyguard` has also done superbly in the Overseas and is Salman`s biggest hit there.

 That Girl In Yellow Boots  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 1.50 crore
The fate of Anurag Kashyap’s `That Girl In Yellow Boots` was obvious after the poor start. Needless to add it may have done somewhat better had it not released in close proximity of `Bodyguard`. A handful of cinemas in big cities did see some patronage but it was negligible.

 Singham  Verdict: Super duper hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 98 crore
 PB Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17

Concluding with Concluding with Rohit Shetty’s Ajay Devgn starrer, `Singham`, the film is ending its super run, even in Mumbai-Maharashtra!
