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

The coming Friday will witness multiple releases in the form of 'Sameer', 'Mr. Kabaadi', 'The Rally', 'Daddy' and 'Poster Boys'. From the list it is just the Arjun Rampal venture 'Daddy' and the Deol's project 'Poster Boys', whichis likely to make a mark at the ticket window.

 Baadshaho  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The premier new release of the week, Milan Luthria’s Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Ileana D’Cruz and Vidyut Jammwal starrer, 'Baadshaho', embarked on a decent 30-35 percent start on an average, which given the present box-office scenario, can be termed as decent. Having said that, the film will have to sustain during the weekdays, to be declared a success, given the high involved costs.

The second release of the week, the low budgeted 'Shubh Mangal Saavdhan', has pleasantly surprised with a 15 percent start which picked up to 20 (in some rare cases 25 percent) by the latter shows, thanks to a positive word-of-mouth and reviews, and is likely to end up as a back-to-back success for Ayushmann and Bhumi, fingers crossed.

 Babumoshaai Bandookbaaz  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 9 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 9 crore
The shoe string budgeted (5 crore raw) Nawazuddin-Bidita starrer, 'Babumoshaai Bandookbaaz', has managed to scrape through at the box-office.

 A Gentleman  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 18 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 18 crore
The reasonably expensive Siddharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez starrer, 'A Gentleman', has faced outright rejection.

The film is somewhat better in the Overseas grossing $1.1m.

 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 8.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs.27.50 crore ; UK£95,000 ; US$360,000

 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
After a sweet opening week (19 crore), the Rajkummar Rao, Ayushmaan Khurrana and Kriti Sanon starrer, 'Bareilly Ki Barfi', managed to hold on during the second. Given the 20 crore all inclusive cost, out of which 15 crore has already been recovered via non-theatrical and overseas rights,the film is now a clean success.

The film has also surprised in the overseas grossing $1.40m

 Jab Harry Met Sejal  Verdict: Disaster
