 Go , Its Breaking News , Chhodon Naa Yaar  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The fasting month of `ramzaan` has been joined by the `shraadh` period from 27th September and no significant release hits the screens this week. None of the listed releases like `Go` , `Its Breaking News` or `Chhodon Naa Yaar` are expected to achieve anything at the ticket window.

 Johnny Gaddaar  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 402 unique users): 5.18
 Director: Sriram Raghavan  Producer: Adlabs Films Ltd.

 Starring: Dharmendra, Rimi Sen, Vinay Pathak, Zakir Hussain, Govind Namdeo, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Rasika Joshi, Daya Shetty
 Genre: Action  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
`Johnny Gaddaar` got good reviews but was off to a weak/dull opening in Bombay and the start was poor almost everywhere. Despite its merits, the movie is expected to find the going tough at the box-office, given its weak start.

 Dil Dosti Etc.  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 PB Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17

 Starring: Shreyas Talpade, Imaad Shah, Nikita Anand and Ishita Sharma
 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
`Dil Dosti Etc.` had a dull start in Bombay and the opening was fair at places but dull otherwise. The film may be a realistic drama but the reality at the box-office will not be a happy tale, except for a few cities where it will do average business. The movie should do relatively better in Delhi-U.P., because of the local flavour.

 Dhol  Verdict: Average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 10 crores ; UK $16,494  Total Earnings: India Rs. 10 crores ; UK $72,148
It cost Percept Pictures 8 crores to make DHOL and the medium budget movie fared best in Delhi-U.P. but was average to below average in circuits like Bombay, C.P Berar, C.I. and Nizam. The movie may well be an earner for most of its distributors barring those in South. However, `Dhol` has failed in the UK.

 Manorama Six Feet Under  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.35 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 0.35 crores
 Director: Navdeep Singh  Producer: Ketan Maroo
 Music: Jayesh Gandhi and Raiomond Mirza  Lyrics: Surendra Mishra, Jayesh Gandhi, Manoj Tapadia, Irfan Siddique and Rowdy
 Starring: Abhay Deol, Raima Sen, Gul Panag, Sarika, Vinay Pathak, Kulbhushan Kharbanda.
 Genre:  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
`Manorama Six Feet Under` has poor collections to show and is a trade disaster.

 Loins Of Punjab  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 1 crore
`Loins Of Punjab` could not show results despite appreciation. The movie has flopped at the box-office.

 Dhamaal  Verdict: Semi-hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 3.50 crores ; UK $5,064  Total Earnings: India Rs. 26 crores ; UK $451,097
`Dhamaal`continues its surprisingly good run for a lean month! The movie is also an average in UK.
