Bollywood Box Office

This week saw a number of new films- Jimmy Sheirgill’s `A Flat`, the Tanushree Dutta starrer `Raama-The Saviour` and `Dunno Y... Na Jaane Kyun`. With the Diwali releases, especially `Golmaal 3` still quite strong, the new incumbents have not found any takers.

Golmaal 3 Verdict: Awaited
Weekly Earnings: UK£259,611 ; US$626,432 Total Earnings: UK£259,611 ; US$626,432
PB Rating: 8.0 out of 10 Public Rating (by 205 unique users): 4.54
Director: Rohit Shetty Producer: Dhillin Mehta
Music: Pritam Lyrics: Kumaar
Starring: Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, Kunal Khemu, Ratna Pathak, Mithun Chakraborty, Johny Lever, Sanjay Mishra, Vrajesh Hirjee
Genre: Recommended Audience:
The much awaited Diwali battle between Ajay Devgn’s `Golmaal 3` and the Akshay Kumar starrer `Action Replayy` was expected to be in favour of G3 but not as one sided as it actually turned out to be during the opening weekend. `Golmaal 3` has also done very good business (for the star cast) in the Overseas.


Action Replayy Verdict: Awaited
Weekly Earnings: UK £154,911 ; US$300,000 Total Earnings: UK £154,911 ; US$300,000
PB Rating: 7.0 out of 10 Public Rating (by 322 unique users): 8.14
Director: Vipul Shah Producer: Blockbuster Entertainment, Hari Om Entertainment, PVR Pictures
Music: Pritam Lyrics: Irshad Kamil
Starring: Akshay Kumar, Aishwarya Rai, Aditya Roy Kapoor
Genre: Comedy Recommended Audience: General
After a somewhat disappointing Friday `Action Replayy` picked up substantially on Saturday only to see indications of a fall on Sunday itself. Surprisingly, despite the presence of stars like Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the film lost to `Golmaal 3` even in the Overseas with very ordinary collections.

Rakht Charitra Verdict: Flop
Weekly Earnings: Rs. 1.75 crore Total Earnings: India Rs. 8.50 crore
After a below par opening week Ram Gopal Varma’s `Rakht Charitra` saw a huge fall in the second. The film will now have to depend on the Telugu version to take it to safety.
