Box Office Report for the Week - 22 Jan 2015
  ´Baby´ Set To Impress ; ´Alone´ Holds ; ´Tevar´ Is Fair ; ´PK´ Is All Time Blockbuster!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

This Friday will see the release of `Baby`, the next offering from the Akshay-Neeraj team (after `Special 26`). Given the crisp promos, topical subject and Akshay in his action avatar(once again after the hit `Holiday`), `Baby` is expected to see a good run at the ticket window, and end up, perhaps as the first success/hit of 2015.

The other release of the week, Malaika & Arbaaz Khan’s `Dolly Ki Doli` too is getting the eyeballs, especially due to its hilarious promos and catchy music, and on that count `DKD` too will surely find patronage from the fans of this genre.

 Alone  Verdict: Released
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 Director: Bhushan Patel  Producer: Kumar Mangat Pathak, Abhishek Pathak and Pradeep Agarwal
 Music: Jeet Ganguly, Ankit Tiwari and Mithoon  Lyrics:
 Starring: Bipasha Basu, Karan Singh Grover and Zakir Hussain
 Genre: Horror  Recommended Audience:
The Bipasha-Karan starrer `Alone` managed a reasonable weekend netting 12-13 crore, and is the only film of last Friday that still has some chances at the box-offices.

 Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
A bad release date made sure that the Zayed-Tina starrer, `Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene`, turned out to be failure.

 Crazy Kukkad Family  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The Prakash Jha venture `Crazy Kukkad Family` has failed at the ticket window.

 Tevar  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 35 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 35 crore ; UK£115,000 ; US$235,000
Meanwhile, last week’s Manoj Bajpayi, Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha starrer, `Tevar`, did not see any big improvement in its collections but still managed a decent week. The film will have to show another decent run during the second week, to end up as a safe venture. `Tevar` is so-so in the overseas.

 Ugly  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 7 crore
Checking out Anurag Kashayap’s `Ugly`, the film surprised with a very steady second week (3 crore). Unfortunately that did not change it’s prospects much, as it could not add much in the third week

 PK  Verdict: All time blockbuster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 10 crore ; UK£42,000 ; US102,500  Total Earnings: India Rs. 330 crore ; UK£2,320,000 ; US$10,500,000
 PB Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Rajkumar Hirani  Producer: Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani
 Music: Shantanu Moitra, Ajay Atul and Ankit Tiwari  Lyrics: Swanand Kirkire, Amitabh Verma and Manoj Muntashir
 Starring: Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma, Saurabh Shukla, Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjay Dutt
 Genre: Family  Recommended Audience:
Concluding with Rajkumar Hirani’s Aamir-Anuskha starrer, `PK`, the film is on a record smashing spree and is the biggest grosser of the Indian cinema. `PK` is also a blockbuster (record breaking in US) in the overseas grossing over $26m.
