  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

This week saw two new releases, Yash Raj Films` (Y-Films) `Luv Ka The End` and Vikram Bhatt`s Mahakshay starrer, `Haunted 3 D`. Though it was obvious that that `Haunted 3 D` would dominate `Luv Ka The End`, but the extent of dominance turned out to be totally one sided. While the collections of `Haunted 3 D` were average in the 2 D version (20-45 percent), it was a totally different story as far as the 3 D version is concerned as the occupancy varied from 60-70 to even 100 percent at some screens. Coming to `Luv Ka The End`, the film has ordinary collections (5-20 percent) and even the audience feedback is quite negative.

 Chalo Dilli  Verdict: Released
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
As expected Lara Dutta`s `Chalo Dili` did quite well at the multiplexes and given the reasonable budget, the film is expected to be a plus venture for all concerned.

 Shor In The City  Verdict: Released
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 PB Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Raj Nidimoru Krishna D.K.  Producer: Ekta Kapoor Shobha Kapoor
 Music: Sachin-Jigar, Harpreet  Lyrics: Sameer and Priya Panchal
 Starring: Tusshar Kapoor, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Preeti Desai, Pitabash Tripathy Nikhil Dwivedi, Radhika Apte, Sundeep Kishan, Girija Oak, Zakir Hussain
 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: General
Though it was not expected to have a big start at the ticket window, Balaji Motion Pictures’ `Shor In The City` has managed a surprisingly good performance! With a very tight release of around 500 screens across the country, `Shor In The City` has netted around 3.85 crores in the first four days itself!

 Naughty@40  Verdict: Released
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Though it was expected that Govinda`s `Naughty@40` would appeal to the mass oriented centres, but it did not happen.

 Dum Maaro Dum  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 23.25 crores ; UK£ 31,661; US$ 92,332  Total Earnings: India Rs. 23.25 crores ; UK£ 187,000 ; US$485,000
 Director: Rohan Sippy  Producer: Ramesh Sippy
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Jaidep Sahni
 Starring: Abhishek Bachchan, Rana Daggubati, Prateik Babbar, Bipasha Basu Aditya Pancholi Monty Munford
 Genre: Action  Recommended Audience: General
Despite losing out on a good first day haul, Rohan Sippy’s `Dum Maaro Dum` managed a decent first week. However, the film failed to capitalize on the comparatively weaker opponents in the second weekend, for which the lack of follow up aggressive campaign is to be blamed. But the Abhishek starrer has good chances of getting into the profit zone, after accounting for non-theatrical rights. The film though has failed in the Overseas but is better in the US.

 Zokkomon  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.80 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 0.80 crore
The fate of `Zokkomon` was obvious even before the release but one was hoping for a miracle which never happened.

 Thank You  Verdict: Average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 3.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 45.50 crore ; £447,000 ; US$463,000
Meanwhile, Anees Bazmee’s `Thank You` managed to last much longer than what many had imagined and predicted (based on a disappointing first day). The Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty , Irrfan Khan, Sonam Kapoor and Rimi Sen starrer has inched to an average status after accounting for non-theatrical rights. The film though has under-performed in the Overseas.
