  Blockbuster ´Bajrangi Bhaijaan´ Set To Cross 300 crore; ´Bahubali´ Is The Biggest Regional Dubbed Hit!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

The major release of the week is going to be Nishkant Kamat’s Ajay, Tabu and Shriya starrer, `Drishyam`. With good reviews already trickling in, and more to follow, there are chances for the commercial success of the film as well. Though `Drishyam` will not exactly set the box-office on fire but is sure to end up with a decent weekend haul, based on positive word-of-mouth. What should also be taken into account is the fact that the two week old `Bajrangi Bhaijaan` is still quite strong.

 Masaan  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
Last week’s critically acclaimed and award winning Richa Chadda starrer, `Masaan`, garnered a lot of critical acclaim, but unfortunately the same did not translate in to box-office return, as the audience preferred the week old `Bajrangi Bhaijaan` as opposed to `Masaan`.

Meanwhile Meanwhile Kabir Khan’s Salman, Kareena and Nawazuddin starrer, `Bajrangi Bhaijaan`, which saw a superb opening weekend (104 crore), saw rock steady weekdays. With a record breaking (beating Aamir`s `PK`) opening week, `Bajrangi Bhaijaan` is a super hit, and a blockbuster if the second weekend is taken in to account. `Bajrangi Bhaijaan` is Salman’s biggest overseas hit, grossing $15m.

 Bahubali  Verdict: Super hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.24 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 65 crore; US$7,450,000
Checking out S.S. Rajamoli’s `Bahubali` (Hindi dubbed), the film continued it’s dream run (despite `Bajrangi Bhaijaan`. `Bahubali thus becomes the biggest grosser and hit, for a dubbed (Indian regional) film. The film is also rocking the US (for all versions) box-office.

While on Subhash Kapoor’s Arshad-Amit starrer, `Guddu Rangeela`, after a decent opening weekend (6 crore, the film saw diminishing returns during the coming days, and failed at the box-office.

 ABCD- Anybody Can Dance 2  Verdict: Super hit

Concluding with Walt Disney Pictures and UTV Motion Pictures’ Remo Dsouza directed Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor and Prabhu Dheva starrer, `ABCD- Anybody Can Dance 2`, the film has ended it`s triumphant run. `ABCD 2` is also a good overseas success.
