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

 Strangers  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Sahara One Motion Pictures` Kay Kay Menon, Jimmy Shergill, Nadana Sen and Sonali Kulkarni starrer, `Strangers`, will be the only new release of this Friday. Though the film looks interesting, it is not expected to cut much ice with the audience because of lack of face value.

 Khoya Khoya Chand  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Sudhir Mishra  Producer: Prakash Jha (Holi Cow Studios)
 Music: Shantanu Moitra  Lyrics: Swanand Kirkire
 Starring: Shiney Ahuja, Soha Ali Khan, Soniya Jehan, Rajat Kapoor, Vinay Pathak, Sushmita Mukherjee, and Dimple Sharma
 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: General
`Khoya Khoya Chand` may have got the critics excited, but not the audience, who expectedly rejected the movie from the first show itself. The Sudhir Mishra directed film had a horrifyingly weak first day in Bombay and a frighteningly poor start elsewhere. It is obvious that `Khoya Khoya Chand` has disaster written all over it. The Shiney Ahuja and Soha Ali Khan starrer is also a washout in the Overseas.

 Dus Kahaniyaan  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK $80,447 ; US $176,726  Total Earnings: UK $80,447 ; US $176,726
Sanjay Gupta`s `Dus Kahaniyaan` was not expected to take a flying start, but the dull opening in Bombay and the weak start almost everywhere comes as a disappointment.`Dus Kahaniyaan` may be a different experience for the audience but the experience for the distributors may not be a happy one. The movie has also underperformed in the Overseas

 Aaja Nachle  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 11 crores ; UK $166,953 ; US $114,595  Total Earnings: India Rs. 11 crores ; UK $660,238 ; US $425,488
 PB Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 401 unique users): 5.18
 Director: Anil Mehta  Producer: Yash Raj Films
 Music: Salim-Sulaiman  Lyrics: Piyush Mishra, Jaideep Sahni, and Asif Ali Beg
 Starring: Madhuri Dixit, Akshaye Khanna, Konkona Sen Sharma, Kunal Kapoor, Ranvir Shorey, Irfan Khan, and Divya Dutta
 Genre: Musical  Recommended Audience: General
Yash Raj`s Madhuri Dixit starrer manages to get decent collections, despite a dull start. It goes without saying that the only `star` of `Aaja Nachle` (as per the director), the last `superstarni` of Bollywood, Madhuri Dixit, manages to show her star power to her detractors. The real surprise comes from the Overseas, where `Aaja Nachle` has held on quite well.

 Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 3 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 14 crores ; UK $216,941 ; US $117,101
Vivek Agnihotri`s John, Bipasha, Arshad and Boman starrer, `Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal`, fell heavily in its second week. The movie however is a below average from India, based on its cost. `Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal` though has failed in the Overseas

 Om Shanti Om  Verdict: All time blockbuster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs 5 crores ; UK $30,223  Total Earnings: India Rs. 81 crores ; UK $2,612,385 ; US $3,561,742
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 402 unique users): 5.19
 Director: Farah Khan  Producer: Red Chillies Entertainment
 Music: Vishal-Shekhar  Lyrics: Javed Akhtar, Vishal Dadlani, and Kumaar
 Starring: Shah Rukh Khan, Shreyas Talpade, Deepika Padukone, Arjun Rampal, and Malaika Arora Khan
 Genre: Musical  Recommended Audience: General
Farah Khan`s Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika, Arjun and Shreyas starrer, `Om Shanti Om`, continues its good weekend runs. In the Overseas, `Om Shanti Om`, already a blockbuster, continues its record breaking run.

 Jab We Met  Verdict: Hit plus
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1.20 crores ; UK $2,168  Total Earnings: India Rs . 29.50 crores ; UK $867,194

 Starring: Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Dara Singh, Kiran Juneja, Saumya Tandon
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
The Shahid-Kareena starrer, `Jab We Met`, continues its rock-steady reign at the ticket window. It is certain that next week, `Jab We Met` will become the second superhit of Shahid Kapoor`s career, the first being `Vivah`. The movie is also a big success in the UK
