While the battle between the two new releases of the current week is expected to be quite even, Rakesh Roshan`s Jaideep Sen directed `Krazzy 4` may walk away with the initial honours, due to the item numbers by the superstar and superhero Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan!

 U, Me, Aur Hum  Verdict: New

Ajay Devgan`s directorial debut venture, `U, Me Aur Hum` looks like a very polished effort. One feels that the 25 crore Ajay- Kajol starrer, will have a longer shelf life, as compared to the 18-20 crore Juhi, Arshad, Irrfan, Suresh and Rajpal starrer `Krazzy 4`.

Samar Khan`s Rahul Bose, Kay Kay Menon, Jaaved Jafferi, Minissha Lamba and Deepak Dobriyal starrer, `Shaurya`, was off to a dull start but picked up during the weekend.

Small can be beautiful and the most recent proof of that is Ashwani Dhir`s 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 is already an above average fare and can improve further. The biggest surprise of `One Two Three` comes from UK, as the movie is rock steady their during the second weekend.

Tips Films` Abbas-Mustan`s directed `Race` fell heavily during the second week. Once again the Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Akshaye Khanna, Bipasha Basu, Katrina Kaif and Sameera Reddy starrer fared best during the weekend but crashed afterward.
