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

As was quite predicatable Kunal Deshmukh`s Emraan Hashmi, Randeep Hooda and Pooja Gupta starrer, `Jannat 2`, has embarked on a superb start almost everywhere, barring the southern circuits. The opening is the third best of the year after `Agneepath` and `Housefull 2`. From here on `Jannat 2` is sure to be a clean hit, how big or small only time will tell!

 Tezz  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK£59,000 ; US$148,200  Total Earnings: UK£59,000 ; US$148,200

 Genre: Thriller  Recommended Audience: General
Last week`s big release, the Priyadarshan directed Anil-Ajay starrer , `Tezz`, has been totally rejected as it barely netted 14 crores during the opening week. In fact `Tezz` may turn out to be one of the biggest disasters of the year. `Tezz` has also been rejected in the Overseas.


 Life Ki Toh Lag Gayi  Verdict: Flop
The other release of the same week, `Life Ki Toh Lag Gayi`, found little or no support from the paying audience and has failed.

 Vicky Donor  Verdict: Average

 Starring: Ayushmann Khurrana, Yami Gautam, Annu Kapoor
 Genre: Social  Recommended Audience: General
Meanwhile Shoojit Sircar’s Ayushaman Khurana starrer 11 crore (all inclusive cost) `Vicky Donor` a went from strength to strength (especially at the multiplexes) as the days progressed, and will surely get to a hit of not more. The film has also done wonderfully in the overseas.

 Director: Vivek Agnihotri  Producer: Vikram Bhatt
 Music: Harshit Saxena  Lyrics: Kumaar
 Starring: Paoli Dam, Gulshan Devaiya, Nikhil Dwivedi
 Genre: Thriller  Recommended Audience: Adult
While `Vicky Donor` dominated the multiplexes the single screens belonged to Vivek Agnihotri’s 6-7 crore (all inclusive cost) `Hate Story` as the film saw very steady collections.

Despite two new releases, Sajid Nadiadwala’s Sajid Khan directed `Housefull 2` saw another quite steady week. The Mithun, Rishi, Akshay, John, Boman, Ritesh, Shreyas and Asin starrer is also a big hit in the overseas.
