  ´Striker´ Banks On ´Hat Ke´ Tag ; ´Ishqiya´ Scores Over ´Rann´
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

This Friday`s solo Hindi release is Chandan Arora’s Siddharth starrer `Striker`. One feels that based on some innovative promos by Studio 18 the film may score at a few places. There is also `The Hangman` but it is an English language film and even otherwise it would not have achieved anything significant.

 Rann  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK£44,544 ; US$ 1,17,088  Total Earnings: UK£ 44,544 ; US$ 1,17,088
 PB Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Ram Gopal Varma  Producer: Sheetal Vinod Talwar, Madhu Mantena
 Music: Jayesh Gandhi, Dharmaraj Bhatt, Sandeep Patil, Bapi-Tutul, Sanjeev Kohli  Lyrics: Vayu, Sarim Momin, Sandip Singh, Prashant Pandey
 Starring: Amitabh Bachchan, Ritesh Deshmukh, Paresh Rawal, Mohnish Behl, Manisha Koirala, Rajat Kapoor, Gul Panag, Raima Sen
 Genre: Social  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Ramgopal Varma’s Amitabh-Ritesh starrer `Rann` saw a very dull opening in Bombay-Thane, the start was unbelievably poor across India. The film is likely to emerge as a losing fare. `Rann` has also failed in the Overseas.

 Ishqiya  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: UK$ 58,521  Total Earnings: UK$ 58,521
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Abhishek Chaubhey  Producer: Vishal Bhardwaj, Raman Maroo
 Music: Vishal Bhardwaj  Lyrics: Gulzar
 Starring: Naseruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi, Vidya Balan
 Genre: Thriller  Recommended Audience: Adult
Vishal Bhardwaj`s `Ishqiya` had a good start in Bombay-Thane and the opening was also good in Delhi, U.P. and C.P. Berar but not up to the mark in Gujarat and some other places. Trade feels that the Abhishek Chaubey directed, Naseer, Arshad and Vidya starrer will do well in pockets and at some multiplexes. `Ishqiya` though has failed in the Overseas.

 Veer  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 33 crore ; UK£39,822; US$ 92,336  Total Earnings: India Rs. 33 crore ; UK £254,971; US$499,685
 PB Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Anil Sharma  Producer: Sunil Sharma, Pratik Galani, Kamlesh Kumar
 Music: Sajid-Wajid  Lyrics: Gulzar
 Starring: Salman Khan , Mithun Chakraborty , Sohail Khan , Jackie Shroff , Bharat Dhabholkar , Zarine Khan , Neena Gupta
 Genre: Historic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
EROS International and Vijay Galani Moviez’s `Veer` did well initially in spite of bad reviews. Although EROS is likely to lose, some of the distributors of the Salman-Zarine starrer will earn commission due to their reasonable price. The film is so-so in the Overseas but somewhat better in the US.

 Chance Pe Dance  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India 1 crore ; UK£7,114  Total Earnings: India Rs. 10.25 crore ; UK£132,910 ; US$164,188
 PB Rating: 4.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Ken Ghosh  Producer: Ronnie Screwvala
 Music: Adnan Sami, Sandeep Shirodkar  Lyrics: Kumaar, Irfan Siddiqui, Amitabh Bhattacharya
 Starring: Shahid Kapoor, Genelia DSouza
 Genre: Musical  Recommended Audience:
Ken Ghosh’s Shahid-Genelia starrer , `Chance Pe Dance`, crashed badly in the second week after a poor first one. The film is a washout in the Overseas.

 3 Idiots  Verdict: All time blockbuster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.10 crore ; UK$164,188  Total Earnings: India Rs. 190 crore ; UK£ 1,766,697 ; US$ 6,296,784

Rajkumar Hirani’s Aamir, Madhavan, Sharman, Boman and Kareena starrer `3 Idiots` is still doing well. The film has also rocked the Overseas.
