  ´Rascals´ Start Well ; John´s Best Week With ´Force´ ; ´Mausam´ Gets Bad!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

This week’s new movies are the Sanjay-Ajay starrer `Rascals` (released on Thursday), and the two Friday releases, Zayed-Diya’s `Love Breakups Zindagi` and Rajeev Khandelwal’s `Soundtrack`. Given the star power `Rascals` saw the best start (7-8 crore first day) followed by the decent start of `Love Breakups Zindagi`. `Soundtrack` is aimed at the discerning audience and was not appreciated much.

 Force  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK£66,000 ; US$105,000  Total Earnings: UK£66,000 ; US$105,000
 Director: Nishikant Kamat  Producer: Vipul Amrutlal Shah
 Music: Harris Jayaraj, Lalit Pandit  Lyrics: Javed Akhtar
 Starring: John Abraham, Genelia Dsouza, Raj Babbar & Mohnish Behl
 Genre:  Recommended Audience:
Moving on, the good to decent opening of Vipul Shah’s John Abraham starrer, `Force`, was never in doubt, and it did precisely that. The film also maintained well during the weekend netting around 16 crores. However, it has fallen sharply Monday onwards and that is not good news. `Force` has not done well in the Overseas.


 Other Releases  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
From the other releases of the week- `Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster`, `Hum Tum Shabana`, `Tere Mere Phere` and `Chargesheet`- it was just `SBAG` that fared well. In fact the film showed an upsurge in collections during the weekdays and may just about be a plus fare! The remaining releases have failed.

 Mausam  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 28.50 crore ; UK£50,000 ; US$103,000  Total Earnings: India Rs. 28.50 crore ; UK£ 320,500 ; US$ 655,552
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Pankaj Kapoor  Producer: Sheetal Vinod Talwar, Sunil Lulla
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil
 Starring: Shahid Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor,Anupam Kher,Supriya Pathak
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: General
After a decent weekend, the collections of Pankaj Kapur’s, `Mausam` fell sharply during the weekdays. But what is more alarming is that film has crashed badly in the second week. The Shahid Sonam starrer may just about break even, that too after accounting for the non-theatrical rights. In the Overseas, `Mausam` has done quite well.

 Mere Brother Ki Dulhan  Verdict: Hit
 Weekly Earnings: India 3.75 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 57.75 crore ; UK£469,000 ; US$496,172
 PB Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Ali Abbas Zafar  Producer: Aditya Chopra
 Music: Sohail Sen  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil
 Starring: Imran Khan, Katrina Kaif, Ali Zafar, John Abraham
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: General
Meanwhile the Katrina Kaif, Imran Khan and Ali Zafar starrer, `Mere Brother Ki Dulhan`, saw a pronounced fall for the first time, but it hardly matters! The film has also done quite well in the Overseas.

 Bodyguard  Verdict: All time blockbuster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2.25 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 144 crore ; UK£1,408,000 ; US$1,557,000
 PB Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Siddique  Producer: Atul Agnihotri, Alvira Agnihotri, Reliance Entertainment
 Music: Himesh Reshammiya, Pritam (Guest)  Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed and Neelesh Misra
 Starring: Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Mahesh Manjrekar, Raj Babbar, Hazel Keech, Aditya Pancholi, Rajat Rawail
 Genre: Action, Romantic  Recommended Audience: General
Concluding yet again with Salman Khan’s `Bodyguard`, the film is now ending its amazing run after achieving Salman`s highest total in India (beating `Dabangg`). The film is also the stars biggest Overseas grosser!
