  No ´Fraandship´ With Films For Now As Audience Shut Shop!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

This week`s solo Hindi release, the Chandrakant Singh directed Rajneesh, Tanisha, Rajpal and Shilpi starrer, `Be-Careful`, met with a poor response. The audience are obviously awaiting the Diwali extravaganza, `Ra.One`, and so have shut shop for now.

 New Releases  Verdict: Flops
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
All the releases of last Friday, namely Nagesh Kukunoor directed `Mod`, Sanjay Leela Bhansali banner and UTV Motions Pictures’ `My friend Pinto`, Prashant Chadha’s `Azaan`, Y-Films’ `Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge` and `Jo Dooba So Paar - It`s Love In Bihar`, failed to make much of an impact. Yes, `Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge` did fare the best (comparatively) but still the collections were nothing to write home about as at the end of the day the film netted just 3.75 crores.

David Dhawan’s Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn starrer, `Rascals`, failed to capitalize on the good opening day (Dussehra) and the collections came down with each passing day. During the second week the collections have hit rock bottom. `Rascals` has also been rejected in the Overseas.

 Love Breakups Zindagi  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.1.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs.1.50 crore
 Director: Saahil Saangha  Producer: Sahara Motion Pictures

Meanwhile the Zayed-Diya starrer, `Love Breakups Zindagi`, showed some promise on the second day (Saturday) but it did not reflect in the numbers and the film has flopped.

 Soundtrack  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.75 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 0.75 crore

Rajeev Khandelwal’s `Soundtrack` found the going tough from the first day and is a trade disaster.

 Force  Verdict: Below avergae
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 3.25 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 26.25 crore ; UK£135,000 ; 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:
Though the collections crashed in the second week, comparatively speaking, during the second week Vipul Shah’s John Abraham starrer, `Force`, fared better than all the new releases except `Rascals`. But thanks to the non-theatrical rights the film will recover costs. `Force` though is a washout in the Overseas.
