Box Office Report for the Week - 11 Sep 2009
  Flops Galore , ´Daddy Cool´ And ´Quick Gun Murugan´ Are The Best Of The Worse!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

This Friday will see another four releases! The list includes `Baabarr`, `Vaada Raha` ... I promise`, `Aamras ` and `Ruslaan`. From the three, it`s just the Samir Karnik directed Bobby Deol and Kangna Ranaut starrer, `Vaada Raha`, that may find some selective appeal.

 New Releases  Verdict: Failures
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The dull phase at the box-office continues with no film taking even a decent start. Last week’s multiple releases, Shreyas Talpade’s `Aagey Se Right`, the Sunny Deol, Arjun Rampal, Udita Goswami and Sagarika Ghatge starrer `Fox`, Rishi Kapoor’s `Chintuji`, Arbaaz-Jimmy’s `Bachelor Party` and Ashish Chawdhry’s `Three`, have all failed to make a mark at the ticket window.

 Daddy Cool  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India 4.50 crore  Total Earnings: India 4.50 crore
Sunil Shetty’s `Daddy Cool` meets with a cold response at the ticket window, though it still qualifies as the best of the week!

 Kisaan  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 2.50 crore
Sohail Khan’s `Kisaan` has been totally rejected. Even the tax free status in Maharashtra did not help.

 Quick Gun Murugan  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 2 crore
After `Daddy Cool`, the movie that fared the best is `Quick Gun Murugan`, if we add the collections of the dubbed as well as the original English versions.

 Kaminey  Verdict: Above Average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 4.50 crore  Total Earnings: India 41 crore ; UK£263,882 ; US$1,274,420
 PB Rating: 8.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Vishal Bhardwaj  Producer: Ronnie Screwvala
 Music: Vishal Bhardwaj  Lyrics: Gulzar
 Starring: Shahid Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Amole Gupte, Deb Mukherjee, Rajatabha Dutta
 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Vishal Bhardwaj’s Shahid, Priyanka and Amole starrer,`Kaminey`, is holding on well at some centres, but is low at most others. The film has fared very well in the US, but is way below par in the UK.

 Life Partner  Verdict: Average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 19 crore ; UK£ 266,573 ; US$110,240
Rumi Jaffery’s Govinda, Fardeen, Tusshar, Genelia and Prachi starrer, `Life Partner`, is steady on the lower side at some centres but dull elsewhere. The film has been rejected in the US but is decent in the UK.
