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

 Laaga Chunari Mein Daag  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Yash Raj`s `Laaga Chunari Mein Daag`, starring Jaya, Rani, Konkona, Kunal and Abhishek (extended special appearance), will bank on the strength of the banner, decent advance and word-of-mouth.

 Bhool Bhulaiyaa  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 PB Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Priyadarshan  Producer: Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Sameer
 Starring: Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Shiney Ahuja, Amisha Patel, Paresh Rawal, Rajpal Yadav, Asrani, Manoj Joshi, Vikram Gokhale, Rasika Joshi, Vineeth, Tareena Patel
 Genre: Thriller  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Given the fact that during the festive period, the audience prefers light, fun-filled movies, Priyadarshan`s Akshay, Shiney, Amisha, Vidya and Rajpal starrer `Bhool Bhulaiyaa` is expected to take a good to decent start, and will pick up further from `Eid` day. The movie also banks on Akshay-Priyan combo and popular music.

 Go , Its Breaking News , Chhodon Naa Yaar , 50 Lakh  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The openings of Ram Gopal Varma`s `Go`, Swadeshi Entertainment`s desi take-off on `The Blair Witch Project`, `Chhodon Naa Yaar` , Percept Picture Company`s `50 Lalkh` and Animaa Films` `It`s Breaking News`, varied from dull to terrible, whereever they released. Needless to add that all the four above mentioned movies are all set to fail at the box-office.

 Johnny Gaddaar  Verdict: Probable flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 3 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 3 crores
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 402 unique users): 5.18
 Director: Sriram Raghavan  Producer: Adlabs Films Ltd.
 Music: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy  Lyrics: Jaideep Sahni, Hardkaur, Nilesh Mishra
 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 the critical acclaim, both for the movie as well as its music, but at the ticket window, it had only dull/weak collections to show. It is a probable flop, unless a miracle happens in the second week, and that is unlikely.

 Dil Dosti Etc.  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1.50 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 1.50 crores
 PB Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Manish Tiwary  Producer: Prakash Ja
 Music: Sidharth Suhas, Agnee  Lyrics: Prashant Pandey and Ram Goutam
 Starring: Shreyas Talpade, Imaad Shah, Nikita Anand and Ishita Sharma
 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
`Dil Dosti Etc.` has dull collections to show but its biggest advantage is its low budget and rock-bottom selling price.

 Dhol  Verdict: Average plus
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 5.50 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 15.50 crores ; UK $77,577
Priyadarshan`s `Dhol` continued to surprise its detractors, by holding quite well, even in the second week. The movie can improve its status with another decent week. However, `Dhol` has flopped in the UK.

 Loins Of Punjab  Verdict: Below-average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs 1 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 2 crores
`Loins Of Punjab` springs a surprise by getting almost identical to first week collections in its second!

 Dhamaal  Verdict: Semi-hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 3 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 29 crores ; UK $460,731
Indra Kumar`s `Dhamaal` continues its reasonably steady run, even in the fourth week. The Indra Kumar directed Dutt, Arshad, Riteish, Jaaved and Aashish starrer remains in the semi-hit bracket (hit in Bombay) overall and another reasonable week may take it to a hit status. `Dhamaal` is also a good average in UK.

 Heyy Babyy  Verdict: Superhit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.50 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 51.50 crores ; UK $1,382,988 ; US $1,443,521
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Sajid Khan  Producer: Sajid Nadiadwala (Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment)
 Music: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy  Lyrics: Sameer and Anvita Dutt Guptan
 Starring: Ritesh Deshmukh, Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Fardeen Khan, and Boman Irani
 Genre: Comedy  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Sajid Nadiadwala`s Akshay, Fardeen, Riteish and Vidya starrer, `Heyy Babyy` is now on its last legs. The Sajid Khan directed movie will not be able to move into the next higher slot/rating. `Heyy Babyy` is already a good hit in the Overseas.

 Chak De India  Verdict: Blockbuster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 62.50 crores ; UK $867,265 ; US $1,120,404

 Director: Shimit Amin  Producer: Aditya Chopra
 Music: Salim-Sulaiman  Lyrics: Jaideep Sahni

 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: General
The rock steady run of Yash Raj`s Shah Rukh Khan-Vidya Malvade starrer, `Chak De! India`, continues unabated. In fact, in its eighth week the movie`s collections were more than those in the seventh! The film is now entering the all-time blockbuster region. `Chak De! india` is already a hit in the Overseas.
