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

 Singh is Kinng  Verdict: New
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 PB Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Anees Bazmee  Producer: Vipul Shah
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Mayur Puri
 Starring: Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Neha Dhupia, Javed Jaffrey, Kiron Kher, Ranvir Shorey, Kamal Chopra, Yashpal Sharma, Om Puri, Sonu Sood, Sudhanshu Pandey
 Genre: Comedy  Recommended Audience: General
This Friday`s new release, Vipul Shah`s Anees Bazmee directed Akshay, Katrina and Sonu Sood starrer, `Singh Is Kinng`, is all set to take an outstanding opening. Trade feels that the start that the Anees-Akshay venture is likely to embark upon will be on par if not better than their last venture, `Welcome`, both in India and Overseas. One must add here that `Singh Is Kinng` has been sold for a fancy price to Studio 18 and it has to sustain for at least two weeks before it can be called a success.

 Ugly Aur Pagli  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
 Director: Sachin Khot  Producer: Pritish Nandy
 Music: Anu Malik  Lyrics: Amitabh Verma
 Starring: Ranvir Shorey, Mallika Sherawat, Zeenat Aman, Tinu Anand, Sushmita Mukherjee, Priyanka Sharma, Vihang Nayak, Bharti Achrekar, Payal Rohatgi, Sapna Bhavnani, Manish Anand,
 Genre:  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Last week`s solo release, the Mallika-Ranvir starrer, `Ugly Aur Pagli`, had an ordinary to dull opening across India, which improved only marginally during the weekend. The reason is obvious, the film did not turn out to be the laugh riot that its teasers and title promised it would be. At the box-office, it is a disappointing fare and the average performance during the opening weekend will be its only redeeming feature.

 Mission Istanbul  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 7 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs. 7 crores
 Director: Apoorva Lakhia  Producer: Ekta Kapoor, Shobha Kapoor, Sunil Shetty, Shabbir Boxwala
 Music: Anu Malik, Chirantan Bhatt, Shammir Tandon, Mika Singh  Lyrics: Sameer, Virag Mishra, Shabbir Ahmed, Hamza Faruqui, Ishq Bector, Mika Singh
 Starring: Zayed Khan, Sunil Shetty, Viveik Oberoi, Nikitin Dheer, Shabbir Aluwalia, Shreya Sharan, Abhishek Bachchan (Special Appearance)
 Genre:  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Apoorva Lakhia`s Vivek, Zayed starrer `Mission Istaanbul`, had only ordinary collections to show. Since action thrillers rely heavily on the initial, and the movie has failed to get that, `Mission Istaanbul` is more or less a failure at the box-office.

 Money Hai Toh Honey Hai  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.4.70 crores  Total Earnings: India Rs.4.70 crores
The Ganesh Acharya directed `Money Hai Toh Honey Hai`, featuring Govinda, Manoj, Upen and Hansika has poor collections to show. The outcome is obvious.

 Kismat Konnection  Verdict: Above average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 5.90 crores; US$23,254  Total Earnings: India Rs. 26.50 crores; US$479,759
 PB Rating: 4.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Aziz Mirza  Producer: TIPS
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed and Sayeed Quadri
 Starring: Shahid Kapoor, Vidya Balan, Juhi Chawla, Om Puri, Vishal Malhotra
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
The second week saw a huge crash for `Kismat Konnection`. Thankfully, it has already crossed over to the profitable side of the equation. The Aziz Mirza directed Shahid-Vidya starrer has done quite decently in the Overseas.

 Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na  Verdict: Blockbuster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 4.75 crores; US$11,251  Total Earnings: India Rs. 51 crores; US$600,922
 PB Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 410 unique users): 5.11
 Director: Abbas Tyrewala  Producer: Aamir Khan, Mansoor Khan
 Music: A R Rahman  Lyrics: Abbas Tyrewala
 Starring: Imraan Khan, Genelia Dsouza (Special apperance by Ratna Pathak, Naseerudhin Shah, Arbaaz Khan, Sohail Khan, Arshad Warsi, Paresh Rawal, Manjari Phadnis)
 Genre: Romantic  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Aamir Khan and PVR Pictures` `Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na` has a very stable week (as compared to the previous one) to show. The Abbas Tyrewala directed Imran-Genelia starrer continues its one horse race! `Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na` has also done very well in the US.
