Box Office Report for the Week - 25 Jun 2011
  After ´Ready´ It Is Time For ´Double Dhamaal´ At The Ticket Window!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

After three weeks of one sided dominance by Anees Bazmee’s Salman-Asin starrer, `Ready`, it is now predictably the turn of Indra Kumar’s `Double Dhamaal`. The film has embarked on a good start (bumper in the North). Even in circuits like Mumbai-Maharashtra and Gujarat, which were a tad slow to begin with, the film picked up as the days progressed.

 Bheja Fry 2  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 PB Rating: 4.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 413 unique users): 5.08

 Starring: Vinay Pathak, Kay Kay Menon, Minissha Lamba, Suresh Menon, Amole Gupte
 Genre: Comedy  Recommended Audience: General
From the bunched releases of last week, it was just `Bheja Fry 2` that saw some decent collections at select multiplexes, but it flattered to decieve, as the weekdays commenced. Rest of the releases like `Always Kabhi Kabhi` and `Cycle Kick` etc. sank without a trace!

 Bin Bulaye Baraati  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Prakash Jaju`s `Bin Bulaye Baraati`, was patronized by the single screen cinemas of North and Central India, but that was not enough!

 Shaitan  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 5.30 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 5.30 crore
 PB Rating: 9.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Bejoy Nambiar  Producer: Anurag Kashyap, Sunil Bohra
 Music: Prashant Pillai, Amar Mohile, Ranjit Barot, Anupam Roy  Lyrics: K. S. Krishnan, Sanjeev Sharma, Colin Terence, Abhishek, and Shradha
 Starring: Rajit Kapoor, Rajeev Khandelwal, Kalki Koechlin, Pawan Malhotra, Shiv Pandit, Gulshan Devaiya, Neil Bhoopalam, Kirti Kulhari
 Genre: Thriller  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Moving on, despite good critical acclaim, Anurag Kashyap’s `Shaitan` failed to entice the audience. The film is likely to end up as a commercial debacle.

 Ready  Verdict: Blockbuster

Meanwhile Anees Bazmee’s Salman-Asin starrer had another very steady second week and looks all set to end around 120-122 crore finally. In the Overseas `Ready` continues to be quite stable.

 Pyar Ka Punchnama  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 11.50 crore
 Director: Luv Ranjan  Producer: Abhishek Pathak

Concluding with `Pyaar Ka Punchnama`, the film had another steady week, quite creditable in the wake of `Ready`!
