Box Office Report for the Week - 28 Jan 2010
  ´Rann´ To Dominate ´Ishqiya´; ´Veer´ Rules The Single Screens & The Hindi Belt!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

This week sees Ramgopal Varma’s `Rann` take on Vishal Bhardwaj’s Abhishek Chaubey directed `Ishqiya`. A third player in the field is `Road To Sangam`. One feels that in this clash of the unconventionals, it is `Rann` that will lead the field, with `Ishqiya` coming a close second and `Road To Sangam` finishing a poor third!

Last Friday`s EROS International and Vijay Galani Moviez’s `Veer` went as per predictions. In Bombay the film saw a very good opening in single screen cinemas and an ordinary to dull start at the multiplexes. Outside of Bombay the opening of `Veer` was bumper in Rajasthan and excellent in single screen cinemas of U.P. and C.I. but ordinary in Delhi and some other big cities. Trade feels that the film has masala for the masses and single screen cinemas but not enough for the multiplexes. The film is expected to do well in circuits like Rajasthan , U.P., Bihar and C.I. but it will be difficult to recover its 65 crore budget, even after the non-theatrical rights have been accounted for. The Salman-Zarine starrer has so-so collections in the UK and is somewhat better in the US.
