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

This Friday will witness about half a dozen releases - 'Dobaara', Manisha Koirala’s 'Dear Maya', Konkona Sen Sharma’s 'A Death In The Gunj', 'Mirror Game – Ab Khel Shuru', 'Sweetie Weds NRI' and 'Junoon-Once Upon A Time In Calcutta' and 'Hanuman Da’ Damdar' (animated) along with Priyanka Chopra’s 'Baywatch' (dubbed) etc. Needless to add that the clash will result in a nothing sort of a situation, with just 'A Death In The Gunj', 'Dobaara' and 'Hanuman Da’ Damdar' harboring some chances.

 Sachin  Verdict: Average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 30 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 30 crore
Last week saw the release of 'Sachin : A Billion Dreams' (docu-feature) and the film put up an inspired performance (given the genre), thanks to Sachin Tendulkar’s still intact fame. During the opening weekend, 'Sachin' netted 25 crore while the dubbed versions added another 5 crore and is all set to be a profitable venture.


 Half Girlfriend  Verdict: Average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 48.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 48.50 crore ; UK£193,000 ; US$400,000
 PB Rating: 4.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 5 unique users): 5.2
 Director: Mohit Suri  Producer: Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor, Mohit Suri, Chetan Bhagat
 Music: Tanishk Bagchi, Mithoon, Rishi Rich, Ami Mishra, Rahul Mishra and Farhan Saeed  Lyrics: Arafat Mehmood, Tanishk Bagchi, Kumaar, Kunaal Vermaa, Anushka Shahaney, Ishita
 Starring: Arjun Kapoor, Shradhha Kapoor, Vikrant Massey and Rhea Chakraborty
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience:
Checking out Balaji’s Mohit Suri directed Arjun-Shraddha starrer, 'Half Girlfriend', after a good weekend (32 crore) the film faltered during the weekdays, and the second week trend is not very encouraging.

'Half Girlfriend' is reasonable in the overseas grossing $2.1m.


 Hindi Medium  Verdict: Hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 24 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 24 crore ; UK£92,000 ;US$486,000
The other release of the same week, T-Series’s Irrfan Khan starrer, 'Hindi Medium', saw a rock steady first week, with weekdays almost similar to weekend, a rarity! Given the superb second week trend, the film is a hit.

'Hindi Medium' has done quite well in the overseas grossing $1.5m.


 Meri Pyaari Bindu  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 9.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 9.50 crore
 PB Rating: 6.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 4 unique users): 4.5
 Director: Akshay Roy  Producer: Maneesh Sharma
 Music: Sachin-Jigar  Lyrics: Kausar Munir and Priya Saraiya
 Starring: Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra
 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Meanwhile YRF’s Parineeti–Ayushmaan starrer, 'Meri Pyaari Bindu', turns out to be a big disappointment and will just about be a coverage project for the producers and distributors Yash Raj Films, thanks to the 70-75 percent cost coverage from non-theatrical rights.

 Baahubali 2  Verdict: All Time Blockbuster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 30 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 488 crore ; UK£1,325,000 ; US$20,500,000
Concluding with 'Bahubali 2 :The Conclusion' (Hindi), the film saw another big week and is the first ever film to nett 500 crore from India. 'Bahubali 2' is the biggest ever blockbuster.

The film is also an overseas blockbuster grossing over $32m.
