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

 Ugly Aur Pagli  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 Director: Sachin Khot  Producer: Pritish Nandy
 Music: Anu Malik  Lyrics: Amitabh Verma
 Starring: Ranvir Shorey, Mallika Sherawat, Zeenat Aman, Tinu Anand, Sushmita Mukherjee, Priyanka Sharma, Vihang Nayak, Bharti Achrekar, Payal Rohatgi, Sapna Bhavnani, Manish Anand,
 Genre:  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
This week will see an almost open week with the Mallika Sherawat and Ranvir Shorey starrer `Ugly Aur Pagli` being the solo Hindi release, as `Mukhbiir` has once again been postponed. It translates into an advantageous position for `Ugly Aur Pagli` and another earning week for the oldies.

 Mission Istanbul  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 Director: Apoorva Lakhia  Producer: Ekta Kapoor, Shobha Kapoor, Sunil Shetty, Shabbir Boxwala
 Music: Anu Malik, Chirantan Bhatt, Shammir Tandon, Mika Singh  Lyrics: Sameer, Virag Mishra, Shabbir Ahmed, Hamza Faruqui, Ishq Bector, Mika Singh
 Starring: Zayed Khan, Sunil Shetty, Viveik Oberoi, Nikitin Dheer, Shabbir Aluwalia, Shreya Sharan, Abhishek Bachchan (Special Appearance)
 Genre:  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Both the releases of last Friday, `Mission Istaanbul` and `Money Hai Toh Honey Hai`, failed to impress. While the Vivek, Zayed and Shreya starrer `Mission Istaanbul` had a poor opening in Bombay, it was weak to ordinary everywhere, `Money Hai Toh Honey Hai`, featuring Govinda, Manoj, Upen and Hansika had a dull start in Bombay and was dull to ordinary elsewhere. Both the films are likely to flop.

 Kismat Konnection  Verdict: Average plus
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 20.60 crores ; US$80,108  Total Earnings: India Rs. 20.60 crores ; US$ 430,822
 PB Rating: 4.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Aziz Mirza  Producer: TIPS
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed and Sayeed Quadri
 Starring: Shahid Kapoor, Vidya Balan, Juhi Chawla, Om Puri, Vishal Malhotra
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
After a great weekend, `Kismat Konnection` dropped from Monday. At many places, the fall in collections was huge. Without releasing at most of the PVR cinemas, the Shahid-Vidya starrer manages a good first week. `Kismat Konnection` is set for another decent weekend and at least a semi-hit status from here on. The film has also done quite well in the Overseas.

 Contract  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.2.35 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs.2.35 crores
Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, who looked like getting back on track with `Sarkar Raj`, seems to be on the back foot once again. His latest directorial venture, `Contract`, has very poor collections to show and seems to be heading for a flop status.

 Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na  Verdict: Super duper hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 8.75 crores ; US$26,321  Total Earnings: India Rs. 46.85 crores ; US$440,717
 PB Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Abbas Tyrewala  Producer: Aamir Khan, Mansoor Khan
 Music: A R Rahman  Lyrics: Abbas Tyrewala
 Starring: Imraan Khan, Genelia Dsouza (Special apperance by Ratna Pathak, Naseerudhin Shah, Arbaaz Khan, Sohail Khan, Arshad Warsi, Paresh Rawal, Manjari Phadnis)
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Aamir Khan and PVR Pictures` `Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na` moves on, though with the first perceptible fall, perhaps in the wake of `Kismat Konnection`. The Abbas Tyrewala directed Imran-Genelia starrer is nearing the blockbuster status! The film has also impressed in the US.
