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

The coming Friday will witness the release of Aanand L Rai's 'Happy Bhaag Jayegi' and famous cricketer Brett Lee's 'Un-Indian'. As things stand 'Happy Bhaag Jayegi' is likely to be the front runner, while 'Un-India' may perform well at select multiplexes.

 Rustom  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
As expected Neeraj Pandey’s Akshay Kumar and Ileana D’Cruz starrer, 'Rustom', managed a good opening day, netting 14.50 crore. Given the reasonable costs and positive word-of-mouth, the film is all set to the third success of the year for Akshay Kumar, after 'Airlift' and 'Housefull 3'.

 Mohenjo Daro  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The other release of the same week, the Ashutosh Gowariker directed Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hegde venture, 'Mohenjo Daro', failed to appeal to the audience, netting 9 crore on the opening day. Given the huge costs 'Mohenjo Daro' has tough days ahead.

 Multiple Releases  Verdict: Flops
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
All the releases of last Friday, Rajeev Khandelwal and Guahar Khan starrer 'Fever', Manoj Bajpayee’s 'Budhia Singh Born To Run', Arshad Warsi venture 'The Legend Of Micheal Mishra' , Monjoy Joy Mukerji Productions’ 'Hai Apna Dil To Awara' etc. failed to impress at the ticket window. The front runner turned out to be 'Budhia Singh Born To Run' followed by 'Fever', though the collections are nothing to write home about!

 Dishoom  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 14.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 68 crore ; UK£270,000 ; US$640,000
Meanwhile after quite a good first week (53.50 crore), Sajid Nadiadwala’s John Abraham, Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Nargis Fakhri starrer, 'Dishoom', saw a big fall in collections, though the film is already a success for it’s global distributor EROS, who have already recovered 27-28 crore of their total investment of 70 crore via satellite rights.

'Dishoom' has also done very well in the Overseas grossing $3.50m.

 Madaari  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2.75 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 16.25 crore
After an ordinary first week (13.50 crore), the Nishikant Kamat directed Irrfan-Jimmy starrer, 'Madaari', crashed in the second, and will struggle for recovery.

 Sultan  Verdict: All time blockbuster
