Box Office Report for the Week - 25 Feb 2012
  ´Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya´ Dominates ´Jodi Breakers´ ; ´Ekk Deewana Tha´ Fails ; ´Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu´ Crashes!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

This week saw two releases `Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya` and `Jodi Breakers`. With two films of similar genre releasing on the same day, business was bound to be divided, and that is precisely what has happened. However, as per initial reports barring circuits like Mysore and to an extent some multiplexes of Delhi city, it is the Ritesh-Genelia film `TNLHG` that has clearly dominated the Madhavan–Bipasha starrer.

 Ek Deewana Tha  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: UK£24,200 ; US$17,000  Total Earnings: UK£24,200 ; US$17,000
 Director: Gautham Vasudev Menon  Producer: Gautham Menon, Reshma Ghatala, Venkat Somasundaram
 Music: A.R. Rahman  Lyrics: Javed Akhtar
 Starring: Prateik babbar, Amy Jackson, Manu Rishi
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Meanwhile last week`s `Ekk Deewana Tha` has been completely rejected and the Prateik-Amy Jackson starrer has netted a poor 5 crore (approx) during the opening week.

 Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu  Verdict: Average plus
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 30.70 crore ; UK£ 94,325 ; US$ 2,62,700  Total Earnings: India Rs. 30.70 crore ; UK£528,250 ; US$1,058,300
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Shakun Batra  Producer: Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar
 Music: Amit Trivedi  Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya
 Starring: Imran Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor, Boman Irani, Ram Kapoor, Ratna Pathak Shah
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: General
After a dull to decent start, Shakun Batra’s `Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu` picked up noticeably during the weekend, but a big jump was clearly missing. The film was steady at the lower end during the weekdays (Valentine day saw good numbers). The Kareena-Imran starrer is an average fare but seeing the second weekend crash a ‘hit’ or even ‘semi-hit’ looks difficult if not impossible for the 37-38 crore (all inclusive) film. `Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu` has done wonderfully in the overseas (Imran’s best ever!).

 Valentine`s Night  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The other release of the week, `Valentine`s Night`, starring real life couple Payal Rohatgi and Sangram Singh failed to achieve any significant collections and is a washout.

 Gali Gali Chor Hai  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.10 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 4.60 crore
Meanwhile the Akshay Khanna and Shreya Saran starrer `Gali Gali Chor Hai` could not improve upon it’s dull start and has ended it’s run in the second week.

 Agneepath (2012)  Verdict: Super hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 7 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 120 crore ; UK£725,200 ; US$1,981,600
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 412 unique users): 5.1
 Director: Karan Malhotra  Producer: Karan Johar
 Music: Ajay-Atul  Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya
 Starring: Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Sanjay Dutt, Rishi Kapoor
 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: Adult
Concluding with Karan Malhotra’s `Agneepath`, the film managed to ward off the challenge from `EMAET` (ironically from the same banner!) as it saw another fruitful week. The Hrithik-Priyanka starrer is also an Overseas super hit.
