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

The new release of the week, the Nishikant Kamat directed John Abraham starrer 'Rocky Handsome', embarked on a decent start, though it lagged behind the Hollywood release 'Batman V. Superman : Dawn of Justice'. Having said that, 'Rocky Handsome' is expected to improve it's performance, as the weekend progresses.

 Kapoor & Sons  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: UK£182,000 ; US$987,000  Total Earnings: UK£182,000 ; US$987,000
 Director: Shakun Batra  Producer: Dharma Productions
 Music: Amaal Mallik, Badshah, Tanishk Bagchi, Arko  Lyrics: Badshah, Kumaar, Manoj Muntashir, Dr. Devendra Kafir, and Abhiruchi Chand.
 Starring: Alia Bhatt, Fawad Khan, Sidarth Malhotra, Rishi Kapoor
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Meanwhile, after a not so great opening day, last Friday's Dharma Productions venture, the Rishi Kapoor, Fawad Khan, Siddharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt starrer, 'Kapoor & Sons', managed to spring a pleasant surprise, thanks to a superb Sunday, as the film netted in excess of 25 crore during the opening weekend from India. 'K & S' held quite well during the weekdays and given the holidays, it's likely to end the first week netting in the range of 45-47 crore. The film is all set to emerge as the third big hit of the year, after 'Airlift' and 'Neerja'.

'K & S' is rocking the overseas with (perhaps) the best opening weekend grossing nearly $3m.

 Cute Kameena  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The other release of the same seek, 'Cute Kameena' is a trade disaster

 Teraa Surrooor  Verdict: Flop
Moving on, Super Cassettes Industries Private Limited and Himesh Reshammiya's 'Teraa Surroor' could not achieve much during the opening week. Though the film is a profitable venture for its producers, though the same cannot be said about some of its distributors.

 Jai Gangaajal  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 6 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 30 crore
Meanwhile after a below par first week (24 crore), Prakash Jha's Priyanka Chopra starrer, 'Jai Gangaajal', fell heavily during the second. The film will be lucky to escape with minimum losses, even after accounting for non-theatrical rights.

 Neerja  Verdict: Super hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 5 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 72 crore ; UK£275,000 ; US$1,650,000
 PB Rating: 9.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 412 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Ram Madhvani  Producer: Fox Star Studios, Atul Kasbekar and Shanti Sivaram Maini
 Music: Vishal Khurana  Lyrics: Prasoon Joshi
 Starring: Sonam Kapoor and Shabana Azmi
 Genre: Thriller  Recommended Audience:
Concluding with Fox Star Studios' Sonam Kapoor starrer, 'Neerja', the film saw another rock steady week (aided by tax exemptions in some states).

'Neerja' is superb in the overseas (given the cost and cast) grossing $4m
