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

The coming Friday will see the release of the Suparn Verma directed `Aatma` and Vashu Bhagnani`s `Rangrezz`. Given the reputation of the lead pair, Bipasha Basu and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and the superb promos, `Aatma` is all set to dominate the Jackky Bhagnani starrer `Rangrezz`.

Y-Films’ `Mere Dad Ki Maruti` saw a dull start and could not improve much over the next days.

 Jolly L.L.B.  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Even Subhash Kapoor`s Arshad, Amrita and Boman starrer`, Jolly L.L.B.`, saw a dull to slow start, but picked up quite well from the latter half of the first day itself and improved further on the following days.
