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

As next week sees the release of Salman Khan`s `Jai Ho`, the audience preferred to wait for the film, as is the norm. And so the two major releases of the week, Suneel Darshan’s `Karle Pyaar Karle` and Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s much delayed `Miss Lovely`, failed to make a mark with the audience.

 Yaariyan  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 28 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 28 crore
 Director: Divya Khosla Kumar  Producer: Bhushan Kumar Krishan Kumar
 Music: Pritam, Mithoon, Arko Pravo Mukherjee, Anupam Amod Honey Singh  Lyrics:
 Starring: Himansh Kohli, Serah Singh, Dev Sharma, Rakul Preet Singh, Nicole Faria
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
After a great opening day (for a 10 crore budget newcomer film), Divya Khosla Kumar`s `Yaariyan` managed to end the week on a good note, and it thus becomes the first success of 2014.

 Dedh Ishqiya  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India 22 crore ; UK£38,500 ; US$158,000  Total Earnings: India 22 crore ; UK£38,500 ; US$158,000
Post a dull opening day (for a 28 crore star venture), Vishal Bhardwaj`s Abhishek Chaubey directed `Dedh Ishqiya` held on quite well. However, the Naseer,Madhuri, Arshad and Huma starrer will have to work hard to emulate the success of the prequel, `Ishqiya`.

 Mr. Joe B. Carvalho  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 3.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 3.50 crore
The Arshad-Soha starrer, `Mr. Joe B. Carvalho` could not achieve anything significant and has failed.

 Sholay 3D  Verdict: Above verdicts
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs, 9 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs, 9 crore
Moving on, G.P. Sippy’s Amitabh, Dharmendra, Sanjeeev, Hema, Jaya and Amjad starrer, the timeless classic `Sholay 3D` (along with revived), performed very well for a four decade old film!

 Dhoom 3  Verdict: All time blockbuster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 20 crore; UK£53,000 ; US$50,000  Total Earnings: India Rs. 260 crore ; UK£2,626,000 ; US$8,032,000
 PB Rating: 6.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 404 unique users): 5.13
 Director: Vijay Krishna Acharya  Producer: Aditya Chopra
 Music: Pritam Chakraborty, Julius Packiam  Lyrics: Sameer Anjaan, Kausar Munir, Amitabh Bhattacharya, Vijay Krishna Acharya
 Starring: Aamir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra, Katrina Kaif, Jackie Shroff
 Genre: Action, Thriller  Recommended Audience: General
Concluding with Yash Raj Films’ Vijay Krishna Acharya directed Aamir, Katrina, Abhishek and Uday starrer, `Dhoom 3`, the film saw another good week and is Hindi cinemas biggest grosser by miles! The film has additionally netted another 12-13 crore from the dubbed versions. `Dhoom 3` has also shattered all overseas records grossing $26m.
