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

 Apne  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 PB Rating: 6.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 407 unique users): 5.12
 Director: Anil Sharma  Producer: Rahul Sughand and Sangeeta Ahir
 Music: Himesh Reshammiya  Lyrics: Sameer
 Starring: Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Katrina Kaif, Shilpa Shetty, and Kirron Kher
 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Anil `Gadar` Sharma`s 20 to 21 crore `Apne`, stars Dharmendra and his two sons Sunny and Bobby Deol (together for the first time). Like all family movies, the movie will have a sedate start but will pick up by word-of-mouth. The unique theme of heavyweight boxing is an added attaraction.

 Aap Kaa Surroor  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The big budgeted `Aap Kaa Surroor` is acting debut vehicle of top composer-singer, Himesh Reshammiya. The movie will take a good start due to mass patronisation but long term success will depend on the post-weekend business.

 Awarapan  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 Director: Mohit Suri  Producer: Mukesh Bhatt / Vishesh Films
 Music: Re-created By Pritam  Lyrics: Sayeed Quadri and Asif Ali Beig (Additional)
 Starring: Emraan Hashmi, Shreya Saran, Mrinalini Sharma, and Rehan Khan
 Genre:  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
After some recent setbacks, the career of Emraan Hashmi depends to a large extent on the success of `Awarapan`. At 18 crores, the movie is the most expensive project from the Bhatts in recent past. It is expected that `Awarapan` will find some patronisation from multiplexes.

 Chain Kulii Ki Main Kulii  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
`Chain Kulii Ki Main Kulii` is a well-intentioned film but a half-hearted attempt to entertain children. After the poor to weak start and without the required emotional quotient, the movie has minimum chances at the box-office.

 Jhoom Barabar Jhoom  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 20 crores ; UK $246,456 ; US $136,638  Total Earnings: India Rs. 20 crores ; UK $1,016,276 ; US $695,157

 Music: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy  Lyrics: Gulzar
 Starring: Abhishek Bachchan, Preity Zinta, Bobby Deol, Shruti Seth, Amitabh Bachchan and Lara Dutta
 Genre:  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Yash Raj`s `Jhoom Barabar Jhoom`, starring the likes of Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan, Preity Zinta, Bobby Deol and Lara Dutta, managed to earn well for the week because of a fairly enriching weekend and a high number of prints, but got the thumbs down from the audience all over. Collections crashed from Monday onwards as people rejected the 25 to 27 crore Yash Raj film. The movie has also crashed in the US but is much better in the UK.

Amongst all the `Jhoom Barabar Jhoom` excitement, `Fool N Final` managed to pocket another crore from India, mainly from the significant number of prints in the North and Central parts.
