Box Office Report for the Week - 26 Mar 2011
  ´Monica´ Is Here With ´Happy Husbands´ ; ´Tanu Weds Manu´ Is A Clear Hit!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

Friday saw three new films, `Happy Husbands`, `Life Goes On` and `Monica`. While none of the three film was expected to make an impact at the ticket window, Anup Jalota’s Divya Dutta and Ashutosh Rana starrer, `Monica`, being a topical film (for the hinterland), found some patronage at select single screen cinemas of Uttar Pradesh.

 Dubbed and regional films  Verdict: Flops
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
With no new Hindi releases last Friday, many dubbed and regional films released at the cinemas but even they could not make any mark, more so due to the ICC World Cup Cricket being the first choice for the viewers. Interestingly, even a host of past hits from stars like Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan too went unnoticed when distributors re-released them.

 Tanu Weds Manu  Verdict: Hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 5.25 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 32.75 crore ; UK£88,000 ; US$227,000
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Anand Rai  Producer: Sanjay Singh Films
 Music: Krsna  Lyrics: Raj Shekhar
 Starring: R Madhavan, Kangana Ranaut, Jimmy Shergill, Deepak Dobriyal, Swara Bhasker, Ejaaz Khan, Navni Parihar, K K Raina, Rajendra Gupta and Ravi Kishan
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: General
Checking out `Tanu weds Manu`, the film continues to gallop in a one horse race. The Madhavan-Kangna starrer is now clean hit. The film has also done quite well in the Overseas (and with a limited release!).

 7 Khoon Maaf  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.55 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs.19.80 crores ; UK£95,000 ; US$270,000
 PB Rating: 4.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11

 Music: Vishal Bhardwaj  Lyrics: Gulzar
 Starring: Priyanka Chopra, Neil Nitin Mukesh, John Abraham, Irrfan Khan, Aleksandr Dyachenko, Annu Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Vivaan Shah
 Genre: Thriller  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Meanwhile the collections of Vishal Bhardwaj’s `7 Khoon Maaf` continue to fall. The film has also failed in the Overseas.

 Patiala House  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.65 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 33 crore ; UK£700,000 ; US$650,000
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Nikhil Advani  Producer: Bhushan Kumar, Mukesh Talreja
 Music: Shankar Ehsaan Loy  Lyrics: Anvita Dutt Guptan
 Starring: Rishi Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia, Akshay Kumar, Anushka Sharma, Tinnu Anand, Soni Razdan, Prem Chopra, Masood Akhtar, Armaan Kirmani, Hard Kaur, Usmaan Qureshi and Devansh Daswani.
 Genre: Social  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Concluding yet again with Nikhil Advani’s `Patiala House`, the film stays in the cinemas due to the paucity of any new release. The Rishi Kapoor, Akshay Kumar and Anushka Sharma starrer has also under-performed in the Overseas (much better in the UK).

 Yeh Saali Zindagi  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.10 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs 11.50 crore
Sudhir Mishra`s `Yeh Saali Zindagi` is still in circulation due to the paucity of new films.
