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

The opening of `Gali Gali Chor Hai`, starring Akshaye Khanna and Shriya Saran, was never expected to be bumper. However, the slowish (below 25 percent) start at most centers was a disappointment. Additionally the film could not improve it’s collection much during the latter shows, despite a section of the audience liking it. Still, the low budget `Gali Gali Chor Hai` may still impress, more so at the single screens and also in the Mumbai-Gujarat belt, along with the smaller centers.

 Agneepath (2012)  Verdict: Hit
 Weekly Earnings: UK£346,500 ; US$1,213,096  Total Earnings: UK£346,500 ; US$1,213,096

 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: Adult
Last Thursday`s Hrithik-Priyanka starrer, `Agneepath`, netted a superb 88-90 crores (to be validated) during the first extended run of eight days. Given the all inclusive cost of 75 crore (half of which has already been recovered from the non-theatrical tights), the film is a clean hit, and may achieve a super-hit status. The film has also done good business in the Overseas.

Checking out Abbas-Mustan’s Abhishek, Bipasha, Bobby, Sonam and Neil starrer, `Players`, the film saw a reasonable steady week (as compared to the previous one) and may escape with small losses, after accounting for non-theatrical rights. The film has also disappointed in the overseas.
