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

As was expected Yash Raj Films` Habib Faisal directed `Ishaqzaade` got a better response from the audience as compared to Vikram Bhatt’s `Dangerous Ishhq`(3D version doing better). As things stand, if the audience can accept the unconventional ending of `Ishaqzaade`, the film can mark a memorable debut for Arjun Kapoor, while `Dangerous Ishhq` has to work much harder to make Karisma’s comeback a successful one.

 Jannat 2  Verdict: Semi-hit
 Weekly Earnings: UK£36,000 ; US$45,000  Total Earnings: UK£36,000 ; US$45,000

 Genre: Thriller  Recommended Audience: Adult
Last week’s major release from the Bhatt camp, Kunal Deshmukh’s Emraan, Randeep and Eesha starrer, `Jannat 2`, saw a good start at the ticket window but showed no big jump during the weekend. All the same given the all inclusive release of 12 crores and the fact that the film has netted 35-35 crore in the first week (to be validated), the film is sure to be at least a hit from here. `Jannat 2` though has failed in the Overseas (barring Pakistan and the Middle East).

After a dull start and a very ordinary weekend, Priyadarshan’s `Tezz` crashed from Monday onwards. The Anil, Ajay and Kangna starrer has also failed in the overseas.

Vivek Agnihotri’s ;Hate Story` crashed at the multiplexes in the second week (but was steady at single screens), though given the 6-7 crore release cost the film had already become a success in the first week itself.
