  Big Pick UP For ´Kahaani´ ; ´CDKC´ Doesn´t Improve ; ´Paan Singh Tomar´ Is A Winner!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

With the two week old `Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya` and last week’s `Paan Singh Tomar` still doing well, the new releases, `Kahaani` and `Chaar Din Ki Chandni`, were not expected to embark on a big start. All the same, the dull opening of the two ventures was rather disappointing. Thankfully, the Vidya Balan starrer `Kahaani` saw a big pick up on Saturday while `Chaar Din Ki Chandni` hardly saw any growth.

 Paan Singh Tomar  Verdict: Average
 Weekly Earnings: UK£7,500 ; US$20,600  Total Earnings: UK£7,500 ; US$20,600

 Starring: Irrfan Khan, Mahi Gill, Vipin Sharma
 Genre: Historic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
After a dull to poor opening day, the extremely positive word of mouth for the Irrfan Khan starrer, `Paan Singh Tomar`, saw a miraculous turn around in it’s fortunes and the very next day witnessed an astonishing 80 percent pick up (over Friday) leading to a healthy first week of nearly 8 crores (to be validated).


 London Paris New York  Verdict: Awaited

The other release of the week, Ali Zafar’s `London Paris New York`, saw only a marginal pick up during the weekend and the film saw an ordinary first week. The film fared much better than `PST` in the Overseas due to Ali Zafar`s popularity.

 Will You Marry Me?  Verdict: Disaster

The third release of the week, `Will You Marry Me?` was dead on arrival and has been rejected.

After a good pick up during the opening weekend, the Ritesh-Genelia starrer `Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya`, maintained quite well during the weekdays. The film has also maintained quite well in the second week (nearly Rs. 5.75 crore). In the Overseas too `TNLG` has done well for it`s cost and cast!
