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

This week’s new release, Shirish Kunder’s Akshay-Sonakshi starrer, `Joker`, has embarked on an ordinary to dull start. And it comes as no surprise as the the film does not carry the hype and the popular music that should be associated with a big project, and so the equation becomes quite tough for the film despite a very reasonable selling price (around 40 crores).

 New Releases  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The other listed releases of the week include `From Sydney With Love`, `I Am 24` and `Jalpari-The Desert Mermaid`, and all have little or no chances at the ticket window!

Meanwhile after a so-so opening weekend (6 crore)last Friday’s Boman-Farah starrer, `Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi`, maintained decently on the mid-end during the weekdays, netting 9-10 crore during the opening week. Unfortunately that will not be enough! `Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi` has also disappointed in the overseas.

After a huge start, the record breaking run of Yash Raj Films’ Kabir Khan directed `Ek Tha Tiger` continued even during the weekdays. Given the 20 crore plus second weekend, the Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer, `Ek Tha Tiger`, is an all time blockbuster! The film is also Salman’s biggest Overseas hit.

In the end, checking out Pooja Bhatt’s `Jism 2`, the film is on its last legs. While the producers of the Sunny Leone starrer have made a good profit, the all-India distributor (Ponty Chaddha) will also make profits, but at the cost of most territorial distributors who stand to lose. In the Overseas too `Jism 2` has been rejected.
