 Johnny Gaddar  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Sriram Raghavan`s Dharmendra, Neil Mukesh starrer, `Johnny Gaddaar` has its unique theme and somewhat popular music as its USP and the movie looks good.

 Dil Dosti Etc.  Verdict: New

 PB Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17

The second release of the week, Prakash Jha`s `Dil Dosti Etc.` will try to entice the campus crowd with its youthful theme and music.

 Dhol  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK $34,082  Total Earnings: UK $34,082
The Priyadarshan directed `Dhol` had a dull start in Bombay and was below the mark in many circuits, but the opening was good in Delhi-U.P. The movie is likely to have a dull run at the box-office, but its reasonable price is its biggest asset and will see it through in a few circuits. The movie has flopped in the UK.

 Manorama Six Feet Under  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
`Manorama Six Feet Under` had a poor start in Bombay and the opening was weak everywhere. The well made movie may may go unnoticed at the box-office.

 Loins Of Punjab  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
`Loins Of Punjab` had good reviews but poor opening everywhere. The movie may not be patronized due to a poor title, English language and an elitist appeal.

 Aggar  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 1 crore
 Director: Ananth Mahadevan  Producer: Shyam Bajaj and Narendra Bajaj
 Music: Mithoon  Lyrics: Sayeed Quadri
 Starring: Tushar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, Udita Goswami and Sophie Chaudhary
 Genre:  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
The Tusshar-Shreyas starrer `Aggar` recorded disgraceful collections and fetched nil shares from almost everywhere. The movie is a trade disaster.

 Nanhe Jaisalmer  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.40 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 0.40 crore
`Nanhe Jaisalmer` had dismally poor collections to show and is the second disaster of the week.

 Dhamaal  Verdict: Above-average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 8.50 crores ; UK $22,937  Total Earnings: India Rs. 8.50 crores ; UK $436,078
Though there was a drop in the collections of `Dhamaal` in its second week, it was not drastic and within the industry tolerable limits. The movie is a surprise success, despite the lean phase at the box-office. The movie is also an average in the UK.

 Heyy Babyy  Verdict: Super-hit
