View It's Breaking News Movie Stills

With the 'Shraadh' ('Pitri Paksh') period starting from 27th September and the 'ramzaan' month still on, no significant movie is slated to release this Friday. Its just two small projects, CHHODON NAA YAAR and ITS BREAKING NEWS, before the biggies hit the screens from next Friday. None of the two releases is expected to achieve anything at the ticket window.

Last week's JOHNNY GADDAAR got good reviews but was off to a weak/dull opening in Bombay and the start was poor almost everywhere. Despite its merits, JOHNNY GADDAAR is expected to find the going tough at the box-office, given its weak start. The other release of the week, DIL DOSTI ETC. had a dull start in Bombay and the opening was fair at places but dull otherwise. DIL DOSTI ETC. may be a realistic drama but the reality at the box-office will not be a happy tale, except for a few cities where it will do average business. The movie should do relatively better in Delhi-U.P., because of the local flavour.

In its first week, the Tusshar, Kunal Khemu, Sharman, Rajpal and Tanushree starrer managed to nett a decent 10 crores from India and will be an earner for most of its distributors barring those in South. DHOL has failed in the UK, grossing just $72,148.

The other release, MANORAMA SIX FEET UNDER, has poor collections to show. In the first week, the movie collected 13 lakhs from Bombay, 1.40 lakhs from Ahmedabad 2.70 lakhs from Delhi city, 1 lakh from Gurgaon, 1.80 lakhs from Noida, and 2.21 lakhs from Hyderabad. With barely 35 lakhs in its first week from India, MANORAMA SIX FEET UNDER is a trade disaster.

The last release of the same week, LOINS OF PUNJAB, could not show results despite appreciation. In its first week the movie collected 25 lakhs from Bombay, 1.85 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 3.50 lakhs from Pune, 14.35 lakhs from Delhi city, 4.65 lakhs from Gurgaon, 3.75 lakhs from Noida, and 2.50 lakhs from Hyderabad. LOINS OF PUNJAB could barely nett around a crore from India and despite its shoestring budget and limited release; it is likely to fail at the box-office.
