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

After the Diwali week it is the Eid-ul-Azha week and so it comes as no surprise that there are multiple releases in the form of `Miley Naa Miley Hum`, `Tension Dooor` and `Loot` etc. Unfortunately all of them barring `Loot` have been off to poor starts of 5-10 percent. `Loot` itself has not exactly set the box-office on fire but has managed collections in the range of 20 percent or so and will be the only film that has some chances during the festive week.
