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

Both the new releases of this week, `Shakal Pe Mat Ja` and `Na Jaane Kabse` disappointed. While `Shakal Pe Mat Ja` managed collections in the range of 5-10 percent, `Na Jaane Kabse` was even lower than.

 Rockstar  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK£185,000 ; US$612,235  Total Earnings: UK£185,000 ; US$612,235
 PB Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Imtiaz Ali  Producer: Dhillin Mehta
 Music: A.R. Rahman  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil
 Starring: Ranbir Kapoor, Nargis Fakhri, Shammi Kapoor
 Genre: Musical  Recommended Audience: General
After a good 34 crore weekend the Ranbir-Nargis starrer, `Rockstar`, has managed to hold on quite well during the weekdays and ended the week netting 50 crore (to be validated once actual numbers are out). The Imtiaz Ali directed `Rockstar` has confirmed Ranbir’s status as the youngest Bollywood superstar, something that was just a matter of time. The film has also done quite well in the Overseas.


 Miley Na Miley Hum  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.75 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 0.75 crore
 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
Chirag Paswan`s `Miley Na Miley Hum` is a trade disaster.

 Loot  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 3.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 3.50 crore
From the new releases it was just `Loot` that held some appeal for the audience. Though the film has failed commercially it has escaped but with minimal losses, thanks to Govinda’s still intact mass appeal and Mahakshay’s new `Haunted` fan base!

 Damadamm  Verdict: Washout
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.06 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 0.96 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:
Meanwhile Himesh Reshammiya`s `Damadamm!` has hit rock bottom, failing to hit even a crore from India.

 Ra.One  Verdict: Semi-hit

 Music: Vishal-Shekhar  Lyrics: Atahar Panchi, Vishal Dadlani and Kumaar
 Starring: Shahrukh Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Shahana Goswami
 Genre: Action  Recommended Audience: General
Concluding with Shah Rukh Khan’s Anubhav Sinha directed, `RA.One`, the collections crashed just like all the 100 crore plus netters of 2011 have fared the same way! Given that the dubbed (Tamil and Telugu) versions have additionally netted another 6.50 crore, `RA.One` is a semi-hit for it’s worldwide distributor, EROS International, after accounting for the pre-release non-theatrical rights and also sundry earnings. In the Overseas (the collections have fallen heavily here also) but `RA.One` is the biggest Bollywood hit of 2011.
