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

This Friday’s solo Hindi release is Imtiaz Ali’s Ranbir-Nargis starrer, `Rockstar`. Given the fact that the film was keenly awaited and additionally boasts of the youth anthem “Sadda Haq” by A.R. Rahman, stars the hottest young star of Bollywood Ranbir and last but not the least, it has been directed by Imtiaz Ali (`Jab We Met`, `Love Aaj Kal`). And that is why `Rockstar` has embarked on a great start, more so at the multiplexes. The opening varied from 60-70 percent and in some cases even 100 percent. The film is doing best in metros, ‘A’ centers and affiliated satellite towns. The single screens are dull at 40-50 percent, but that comes as no surprise.

 Loot  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The opening of last Friday`s `Loot` was comparatively the best but still nothing to write home about as it netted just about 2 crore during the opening weekend.


 Miley Na Miley Hum  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 Director: Tanveer Khan  Producer: Anuuj Saxena
 Music: Sajid - Wajid  Lyrics: Javed Akhtar
 Starring: Chirag Paswan, Kangna Ranaut, Kabir Bedi, Poonam Dhillon, Sagarika Ghatge, Neeru Singh, Dalip Tahil, Suresh Menon, Kunal Kumar Shweta Tiwari
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: General
`Miley Na Miley Hum` saw negligible collections and was a poor second to even `Loot` as `RA.One`, even with crashing collections remained the first choice during its second weekend.

 Ra.One  Verdict: Semi-hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 100 crore ; £186,200 ; $ 384,500  Total Earnings: India Rs. 100 crore ; UK £1,229,614 ; US$2,229,372

 Director: Anubhav Sinha  Producer: Gauri Khan
 Music: Vishal-Shekhar  Lyrics: Atahar Panchi, Vishal Dadlani and Kumaar
 Starring: Shahrukh Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Shahana Goswami
 Genre: Action  Recommended Audience: General
After a huge 100 crore opening week (9-days), the collections of `RA.One` crashed in the second week and the film has netted around 14-15 crore (to be validated once the collections are out), taking the two week total to 114-115 crore . Yet again, that comes as no surprise because all the 100 crore plus netters (final total) of 2011 have also crashed the same way after a huge first week! The dubbed (Tamil & Telugu) versions have additionally netted 6 crores. `RA.One` has done great business in the Overseas (though it has seen a huge fall in the second weekend), and is Bollywood`s biggest hit of 2011 in that circuit.

 Tell Me O Kkhuda  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.1.20 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs.1.20 crore
Hema Malini’s Esha Deol starrer, `Tell Me O Kkhuda`, saw a very ordinary run (20 lakhs Bombay, 8 Lkahs Ahmedabad, 9.20 lakhs Delhi city) and has failed.

 Damadamm  Verdict: Washout
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.90 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 0.90 crore
 Director: Swapna Waghmare  Producer: Studio 18, HR Musik
 Music: Himesh Reshammiya  Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed, Sameer, Himesh Reshammiya
 Starring: Himesh Reshammiya, Sonal Sehgal,Purbi Joshi,Rajesh Khattar
 Genre:  Recommended Audience:
Concluding with HR Musik’s Swapna Wagmare Joshi directed Himesh Reshammiya starrer, `Damadamm!`, around the middle of last week a section of the media claimed that the film had managed to accumulate 4 crores during the extended week (8-days). However when the collections were disclosed (8.50 lakhs Bombay, 10.50 lakhs Ahmedabad , 5.30 lakhs Delhi etc.) it was quite an anti-climax!
