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

As expected, Yash Raj Films` Aamir, Katrina, Abhishek and Uday starrer, `Dhoom 3` has shattered all existing records, netting 100 crore (to be validated) during the opening weekend itself. The film has also seen some extra ordinary numbers in the overseas, grossing $10m, with £ 907,000 from UK and $3.5m from US (as good as the end run total of many of the biggies), during the opening weekend itself!

 Jackpot  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 5 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 5 crore
The Kaizad `Boom` Gustav Naseeruddin Shah, Sachiin Joshi and Sunny Leone starrer, `Jackpot` has failed at the ticket window.


 What The Fish  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 0.50 crore
The other release of the week, the Dimple Kapadia starrer, `What The Fish`, is a trade disaster.

 R...Rajkumar  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 16 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 60 crore ; UK£140,000 ; US$167,000
 Director: Prabhudeva  Producer: Sunil A Lulla

 Genre: Action  Recommended Audience: General
After a decent first week of 44 crore, Prabhu Dheva’s Shahid-Sonakshi starrer, `R..Rajkumar` held on during the second week. The film though has failed to impress in the overseas.

 Bullett Raja  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 35.50 crore

 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience:
Meanwhile after a so-so opening week (33 crore) Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Saif-Sonakshi starrer , `Bullett Raja`, crashed completely in the following week(s). The film will now have to rely on non-theatrical rights, even for recovery. `Bullett Raja` has also been rejected in the overseas.

Concluding with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s `Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela`, the film managed another decent week and ends as a super hit. The Deepika-Ranveer starrer has also done wonderfully in the overseas (nagical in the US) grossing $6.8m.
