Download Naqaab WallpapersNext Friday will see the release of Tips Films' Abbas-Mustan directed, NAQAAB, featuring Bobby, Akshaye and debutant Urvashi Sharma. Given the team's previous success record, the superb promotion (that has really hyped the movie) and also the fact that the music has caught on quite well, NAQAAB -DISGUISED INTENTIONS is expected to commence a good innings at the box-office on July 13.

None of last week's releases, namely, Govinda's JAHAN JAAEYEGA HAMEN PAAEYEGA, JOURNEY BOMBAY TO GOA and MY FRIEND GANESHA could achieve even a fair start at the box-office. While JAHAN JAAEYEGA HAMEN PAAEYEGA had a poor start, JOURNEY BOMBAY TO GOA and MY FRIEND GANESHA had dull openings. It is but obvious that all three will turn out to be losing ventures, unless and until a miracle happens and that looks highly unlikely. One just feels that from the three above mentioned releases, the animated film, MY FRIEND GANESHA, had the potential to achieve success had it released during the school vacations.

Coming to the first of the three releases of July 29, AAP KAA SURROOR, the movie had an enriching first week. As we had indicated last week also, the Himesh starrer raced ahead of the competition and although the inevitable drop started on day 4 and 5, the first week shares are enough to take it to the 'A' status. Shares from the small centres are phenomenal. Looking at the collections, AAP KAA SURROOR collected 97 lakhs from Bombay, 47.50 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 2.70 lakhs from Himmatnagar, 9.80 lakhs from Rajkot, 3.35 lakhs from Jamnagar, 6.40 lakhs from Bhavnagar, 1.10 lakhs from Porbandar, 3.38 lakhs from Gandhidham, 3.22 lakhs from Solapur, 3.40 lakhs from Nasik, 92.50 lakhs from Delhi city, 8.40 lakhs from Gurgaon, 7.75 lakhs from View Aap Ka Surror Movie StillsFaridabad, 6.43 lakhs from Noida, 10 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 4.32 lakhs from Kanpur, 15.70 lakhs from Lucknow, 5.15 lakhs from Agra, 7.36 lakhs from Varanasi, 2 lakhs from Bareilly, 5.65 lakhs from Aligarh, 11 lakhs from Nagpur, 3.40 lakhs from Jabalpur, 2.55 lakhs from Amravati, 2.1 lakhs from Akola, 8.60 lakhs from Indore, 2 lakhs from Sehore, 11.65 lakhs from Jodhpur, 4.54 lakhs from Ajmer, 19.65 lakhs from Jaipur, 31 lakhs from Calcutta and 36.75 lakhs from Hyderabad. The first week all-India total works out to be around 11 crores and given the fact most of the distributors have nearly doubled their share (as compared to the acquired price), AAP KAA SURROOR, a semi-hit after the first week, will for sure move on to a clean universal hit in India. Even in the UK, AAP KAA SURRROOR has done quite decently, earning $201,055 so far and in the process doubling its first weekend total with quite a steady run.

Coming to APNE, the movie won immense appreciation from one section of the audience but there is another section that has problems with its length and pace. Still, as the first week progressed, APNE picked up further in East Punjab, U.P. and parts of Gujarat. The movie also made up for the rain related losses during the first weekend in Bombay, by being very steady during the second one. View Apne Movie StillsAPNE has also set new theatre records at 43 out of 58 cinemas of East Punjab. Checking out the first week numbers, APNE collected 1.50 crores from Bombay, 66.85 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 2.38 lakhs from Himmatnagar, 3.57 lakhs from Bhavnagar, 1.75 lakhs from Adipur, 2.63 lakhs from Nasik, 1.09 crores from Delhi city, 17.58 lakhs from Gurgaon, 9.31 lakhs from Faridabad, 13.66 lakhs from Noida, 9.22 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 5.33 lakhs from Kanpur, 15.82 lakhs from Lucknow, 6.11 lakhs from Agra, 4.76 lakhs from Varanasi, 4.22 lakhs from Meerut, 7.80 lakhs from Nagpur, 1.10 lakhs from Jabalpur, 1.07 lakhs from Amravati, 1.43 lakhs from Akola, 2.66 lakhs from Raipur, 2.15 lakhs from Bhilai, 7 lakhs from Indore, 1.50 lakhs from Sehore, 1.97 lakhs from Guwahati, 30.26 lakhs from Calcutta, 28.41 lakhs from Jaipur, 3.28 lakhs(gross) from Bikaner, 1.72 lakhs from Aurangabad and 38.94 lakhs from Hyderabad. The first week all-India total works out to be close to 13.50 crores. While APNE has generally done very well in the Overseas, it is rock steady in the UK with $821,132, upto the second weekend.

The last release of July 29, AWARAPAN was badly hit, rather squished between AAP KAA SURROOR and APNE, as we had said last week. Had it Download Awarapan Wallpapersreleased just a week later, it could have been another story. Checking out the collections, AWARAPAN obtained 57 lakhs from Bombay, 17.95 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 2.10 lakhs from Rajkot, 1.50 lakhs from Solapur, 2 lakhs from Nasik, 43.66 lakhs from Delhi city, 5.26 lakhs from Gurgaon, 4.61 lakhs from Faridabad, 3.57 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 4.75 lakhs from Noida, 3.75 lakhs from Kanpur, 9.50 lakhs from Lucknow, 2 lakhs from Agra, 2.40 lakhs from Varanasi, 2.23 lakhs from Meerut, 3.85 lakhs from Nagpur, 1.34 lakhs from Raipur, 6.58 lakhs from Indore, 24 lakhs from Calcutta, 3.46 lakhs from Jaipur, and 37.50 lakhs from Hyderabad. AWARAPAN has barely managed to collect around 5 crores from India and it is all but gone. In UK , AWARAPAN has done well for an Emraan Hashmi movie but $127,161 is nothing to write home about.

Yash Raj's JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM is on its last legs in India. It is now clear that the movie is the first in five years where Yash Raj have lost money. In the third week, the 25-27 crore JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM has collected about a crore and the all-India total stands at around 26.25 crores. In the Overseas too, JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM has been rejected in the US with around $700,000 but has fared much better in the UK with $1,255,991, though it has seen another massive fall there too.

Cheeni Kum Movie PosterMoving on to an earlier release, the Amitabh-Tabu starrer, CHEENI KUM, added another 30 lakhs during the week and the all-India six week total now stands at 17 crores. The 10-12 crore CHEENI KUM is an unquestionable semi-hit in India. The movie has also done very well in the Overseas, collecting $697,369 from US and $776,392 from UK.

Another older release, SHOOTOUT AT LOKHANDWALA, managed to add around 20 lakhs during the week and the all-India six week total is now 33.20 crores. Given the collections, SHOOTOUT AT LOKHANDWALA is a superhit, due to its reasonable selling prices, which were reduced at the last moment in Delhi-UP and East Punjab.
