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

 One Two Three  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 Director: Ashwani Dheer  Producer: Kumar Mangat, Sunil Lulla
 Music: Raghav Sachar  Lyrics: Aditya Dhar, Munna Dhiman
 Starring: Suniel Shetty, Upen Patel, Esha Deol, Sameera Reddy, Tusshar Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Tanishaa
 Genre:  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
This week`s new release is Kumar Mangat`s Ashwani Dhir directed comedy flick, `One Two Three`. Featuring Sunil Shetty, Tusshar Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Upen Patel, Esha Deol, Sameera Reddy, Tanisha Mukherjee and Neetu Chandra, the film may be well made but has no major star to boast of. And that may reduce its box-office potential to a large extent. However, what goes in favour of the movie is its reasonable budget and selling price.

 Race  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK $728,938 ; US $802,254  Total Earnings: UK $728,938 ; US $802,254
 PB Rating: 4.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Abbas-Mustan  Producer: Kumar Taurani, Ramesh Taurani (Tips Films)
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Sameer
 Starring: Saif Ali Khan, Akshaye Khanna, Anil Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Katrina Kaif, and Sameera Reddy
 Genre: Action  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
As was obvious, last Friday`s only new release, Abbas-Mustan`s much awaited `Race` was off to a huge start, across India and Overseas. Produced by Tips Films and starring Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Akshaye Khanna, Bipasha Basu, Katrina Kaif and Sameera Reddy, `Race` got the benefit of the holiday weekend and netted a very imprssive 22 crores in three days. Trade expects that `Race` will get maximum returns from Bombay circuit, South, Delhi and Punjab.

 Black and White  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1.80 crores ; UK $2,078  Total Earnings: India Rs. 5.50 crores ; UK $99,622
 PB Rating: 4.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Subhash Ghai  Producer: Subhash Ghai
 Music: Sukhwinder Singh  Lyrics: Ibrahim Ashq
 Starring: Anil Kapoor, Anurag Sinha, Shefali Chhaya, Aditi Sharma, Habib Tanvir, Akash Khurana
 Genre: Social  Recommended Audience: General
Subhash Ghai`s Anil Kapoor, Shefali Shah and Anurag Sinha starrer, `Black & White`, fell by quite bit and did not draw the advantage of tax-exemptions in Delhi and Maharashtra. But it appears that the low budget film may just about crawl to safety in India. The film has already been rejected in the UK

 Jodhaa-Akbar  Verdict: Hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 4.40 crores ; UK$21,420 ; US $42,606  Total Earnings: India Rs. 58 crores ; UK $1,982,552 ; US $3,397,218

 Starring: Hrithik Roshan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Suhasini Mulay, Raza Murad, Punam Sinha, Rajesh Vivek, Pramod Moutho, and Ila Arun
 Genre: Historic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Ashutosh Gowariker`s Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer, `Jodhaa Akbar`, has another very stable week to show. The film manages to go on against all odds. `Jodhaa Akbar` is already a blockbuster in the Overseas.

 Taare Zameen Par  Verdict: Blockbuster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.25 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 60.75 crores ; UK $675,177 ; US $1,223,869
