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

Anees Bazmee’s Salman Khan starrer `Ready` has embarked on a bumper start, the best of the year so far. The film has taken a flying start across all circuits and not just in some teritories. The single screens especially are record breaking and the multiplexes are also doing good. The weekend may even challenge the record of Salman Khan’s last release, `Dabangg`, but for that `Ready` has to maintain on the same level. The other release of the same week, `A Strange Love Story`, has sunk without a trace.

Last Friday`s `Kucch Luv Jaisaa` did get some appreciation but the radical storyline was rejected by the audience, who preferred the Hollywood releases like `Kungfu Panda 2`.

Meanwhile, `Pyaar Ka Punchnama` has managed steady business after a slow start and will end up as a plus fare once the non-theatrical rights are accounted for.

 `404`  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.0.95 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs.0.95 crore
Checking out `404`, the film was appreciated only by a handful while the majority rejected it.

 Ragini MMS  Verdict: Average plus

Balaji`s `Ragini MMS` had a reasonably decent second week and is a clear success.

 Stanley Ka Dabba  Verdict: Average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 4.50 crore
Amole Gupte’s `Stanley Ka Dabba` has maintained quite well. It is another success after accounting for the non-theatrical rights.
