  ´Atithi .. ´ To Have Good Stay ; ´KCK´ Scores During Weekend´ ; ´Khan´ Moves On!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

This week will see the Ajay Devgan, Konkona Sen Sharma and Paresh Rawal sitcom `Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?` taking on Tanushree Dutta’s horror flick `Rokkk`. The week will also see the release of Studio 18’s prestigious `Road, Movie` that will see a selective release. One feels that given the identifiable situations in `Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?`, the film will score over `Rokkk` while `Road, Movie` will also appeal to its select target audience.

 Teen Patti  Verdict: Released
 Weekly Earnings: £14,645  Total Earnings: £14,645
 Director: Leena Yadav  Producer: Ambika A Hinduja
 Music: Salim-Sulaiman  Lyrics: Irfan Siddique, Asif Ali Beg, Ajinkya Iyer

 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: General
Surprisingly the Amitabh Bachchan, Sir Ben Kingsley and Madhavan starrer `Teen Patti` failed to appeal to the audience both in India and Overseas, though given the cast and promos it was expected to.

 Karthik Calling Karthik  Verdict: Released
 Weekly Earnings: UK£61,969 ; US$1,79,643  Total Earnings: UK£61,969 ; US$1,79,643
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 412 unique users): 5.12
 Director: Vijay Lalwani  Producer: Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani
 Music: Shankar Ehsaan Loy, Midival Punditz  Lyrics: Javed Akhtar
 Starring: Farhan Akhtar, Deepika Padukone, Ram Kapoor, Shefali Chhaya
 Genre: Thriller  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
The Farhan Akhtar and Deepika Padukone starrer, `Karthik Calling Karthik`, had a decent weekend with the collections improving as the days progressed, though not exactly setting the box-office on fire. In the Overseas `Karthik Calling Karthik` could not impress much.

 Click  Verdict: Flop
It did appear that Pritish Nandy Communications’ `Click` may offer something different in the horror genre and appeal to its core audience but it could not.

 Toh Baat Pakki!  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 3.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 3.50 crore
Though it had promised a lot through its music and also the crisp promos, `Toh Baat Pakki!` failed to make an impact.

 My Name Is Khan  Verdict: Hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 17.70 crore ; UK£ 1,76,145 ; US$ 254,221  Total Earnings: India Rs. 65.10 crore; UK £ 2,307,067; US $3,634,423
 PB Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 411 unique users): 5.12
 Director: Karan Johar  Producer: Gauri Khan, Hiroo Johar
 Music: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy  Lyrics: Niranjan Iyengar
 Starring: Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Soniya Jehan, Jimmy Shergill, Zarina Wahab, Parvin Dabbas, Arif Zakaria, Navneet Nishan, Sheetal Menon, Tanay Chheda, Arjun Mathur
 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
The low collections of `Toh Baat Pakki!` and `Click` prove that they were the second and third preference for the audience who once again chose the Karan Johar directed `My Name Is Khan`. The film saw another good to fair weekend but collections fell quite noticeably after that. In the Overseas `My Name Is Khan` continues its blockbuster run.
