Box Office Report for the Week - 11 Dec 2010
  Slow Start But Pick Up For ´Band Baaja Baaraat´ & ´No Problem´ ; ´KHJJS´ Sinks!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

The new releases of this week, YRF`s `Band Baaja Baaraat` and Anees Bazmee`s `No Problem` were expected to bring back the good times to the box-office. Unfortunately, the opening varied from weak to dull. But there is light at the end of the tunnel as both films have seen a noticable pick up. It needs to be seen if it is good enough!

 Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey  Verdict: Washout
 Weekly Earnings: UK£14,417  Total Earnings: UK£14,417
 PB Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11

 Genre: Historic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Though the Abhishek-Deepika starrer `Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se` was not expected to set the box-office on fire but the horrific start and poor weekend of the historical has shocked the trade. The film went from bad to worse during the weekdays. `Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se` is also a washout in the Overseas.

 Rakht Charitra 2  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: -
Ram Gopal Varma`s Rakht Charitra 2` was never expected to do well (as it was the sequel of a flop film) and that is what happened.

 Phas Gaya Re Obama  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Subhash Kapoor’s `Phas Gaya Re Obama` fared the best and showed better legs than its more reputed release partners. However its limited release means that it won`t achieve anything significant.

 Starring: Imran Khan,Deepika Padukone,Shahana Goswami,Yudishtir Urs,Navin Nischol, Lillete Dubey
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: General
After a slow start Danish Aslam’s `Break Ke Baad` saw no miraculous pick up and had a poor run. Though it has had a poor theatrical run, One must add here that the 50 percent of its cost that `break Ke Baad` recovered from non-theatrical revenues, makes it a safe project for the producers. The film has also failed in the Overseas.

 Allah Ke Bandey  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.65 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 0.65 crore
Despite all the critical acclaim `Allah Ke Bandey` has poor numbers to show and is a washout as it saw no divine intervention to save it.
