`Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd.` is only for the cities like Bombay , Delhi , Pune , Bangalore and Hyderabad . It will do decent business in the multiplexes of big cities but can`t hope to achieve much elsewhere

The heavily priced multistarrer has had an excellent weekend, after a mixed first day . The movie could not sustain after the weekend as collections crashed Monday onwards despite good reviews . However , it has done quite well in the Overseas .

 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1.50 crores ,  Total Earnings: India Rs. 40.30 crores , US $2,087,000 , UK $973,302

The movie is doing well even in the 6th week and specially so in the cities. `Guru` gets a boost in Uttar Pradesh due to tax exemption by the state government.

 Traffic Signal  Verdict: Below Average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.55 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 8.15 crores
 PB Rating: 6.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Madhur Bhandarkar  Producer: Percept Pictures
 Music: Shamir Tandon  Lyrics: Sameer
 Starring: Kunal Khemu, Neena Chandra, Konkana Sen Sharma, Sudhir Mishra, Ranvir Shorey
 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: General
It is definately a signal for director Madhur Bhandarkar to stop and rethink. After `Page 3` his `Corporate` barely managed to break even in some circuits and the below par performance of his latest offering will stick out like a red mark in his report card as `Traffic Signal` has done well only in parts of Bombay and Maharashtra in the second week.

 Vivah  Verdict: Blockbuster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.50 cr  Total Earnings: India Rs. 29.80 crores , UK: £250,000
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 442 unique users): 4.84
 Director: Sooraj Barjatya  Producer: Rajshri Productions Pvt. Ltd.
 Music: Ravindra Jain  Lyrics: Ravindra Jain
 Starring: Shahid Kapoor, Amrita Rao, Seema Biswas, Aloknath, Anupam Kher, Lata Sabbarwal, Samir Soni, and Amrita Prakash
 Genre: Family  Recommended Audience: General
After the debacle of `Mein Prem Ki Deewani Hoon`, Sooraj Barjatya finally tastes success. With the oft-repeated traditional milieu and subject, `Vivah` has the same soap-operatic melodrama, this time though made on a significantly lower budget with a low-key cast. With a clever distribution strategy using a limited number of prints, the film sold reasonably runs steady even in its 15th week. Another critically trashed film, another financial success.
