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

This week’s three new releases, `London Paris New York`, `Paan Singh Tomar` and `Will You Marry Me?` went the expected way and failed to achieve anything significant on the opening day. As per early reports, the word of mouth for `Paan Singh Tomar` is good and there are chances that this hard-hitting biopic may see a turn around in it’s fortunes. As for Ali Zafar’s `London Paris New York`, it has appealed to a small section of the multiplex frequenting audience at the `A` centres, and the collections may well grow over the weekend. The Aditya Dutt directed `Will You Marry Me?` was dead on arrival and has little hopes of survival.

Last week`s Ritesh-Genelia starrer, `Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya`, dominated the other release `Jodi Breakers` from the first day, and the gap widened as the days progressed. `TNLHG` ended the week netting 13 crore (approx. The film has also done well in the Overseas, given the cost and cast.
