The first major project of 2008, Ashutosh Gowariker`s Hrithik-Aishwarya starrer `Jodhaa Akbar`, started on a fair to average note, but picked up significantly as the weekend progressed. Opening weekend was good in the UK and excellent (4-day) in the US.

 Genre: Thriller  Recommended Audience: General
Planman Motion Pictures` `Mithya`, managed to surprise with its collection. The film had quite decent shares to show for its price. `Mithya` is likely to turn out to be another surprising success for the `Bheja Fry` director, Rajat Kapoor, especially in view of its shoestring budget.

 Genre: Comedy  Recommended Audience: General
After last week`s crash, Rohit Shetty`s `Sunday` fell further. The Ajay Devgan, Arshad Warsi, Irrfan Khan and Ayesha Takia starrer can at best be called a break even venture in Bombay circuit. `Sunday` is just about fair in UK.

 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1.60 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 58.60 crores ; UK $675,177 ; US $1,223,869

Aamir Khan`s directorial debut venture,`Taare Zameen Par`, still manages to earn significantly for its makers, though on the lower side. The Darsheel, Aamir and Tisca starrer has performed extremely well in the US but has under-performed in the UK.

 Welcome  Verdict: Blockbuster

Anees Bazmee`s `Welcome` is ending its run in India, barring the Bombay circuit. The Feroz Khan, Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar, Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif starrer is also a superhit in the Overseas, specially so in the UK.
