  ´Housefull 2´ Is Akshay-Sajid´s Biggest Opener ; ´Blood Money´ Sneaks Through!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

Despite IPL threat, this week`s new release, `Housefull 2`, is off to a huge start, the biggest for an Akshay-Sajid combo, beating the opening of the teams `Heyy Babyy` and `Housefull`. What is important is the fact that the film is performing well across India (barring Tamil Nadu), and not just in some circuits. The film has also opened very well in the Overseas.

 Blood Money  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Last Friday’s Kunal Khemu starrer, `Blood Money`, saw a decent weekend netting around 5.50-6 crore. The weekdays too were quite steady on the middle end. Given the all inclusive cost of less than 10 crore, the Kunal Dehmukh directed `Blood Money` will be a profitable venture (not a big success ) for the Bhatt camp, thanks to the non-theatrical rights.


 Bumboo  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
`Bumboo` and its jokes found no takers, and the film was rejected from the first show itself.

 Agent Vinod  Verdict: Awaited

The collections of Illuminati Films’ Saif-Kareena starrier, `Agent Vinod`, began to fall heavily from the first Monday, and alarmingly from Tuesday. The film will struggle for recovery despite having pocketed 25 crores via satellite and audio rights. `Agent Vinod` has also under-performed in the overseas, especially in the UK.

 Kahaani  Verdict: Super-hit

Meanwhile Vidya Balan’s `Kahaani` continues to rock the box-office with another bountiful week and will get to a blockbuster status in the end run. `Kahaani` has also impressed in the Overseas.

 Paan Singh Tomar  Verdict: Semi-hit
