The coming Friday will see an interesting clash between Yash Raj's LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG and T-Series' BHOOL BHULAIYAA. Given the fact that during the festive period, the audience prefers light, fun-filled movies, Priyadarshan's Akshay, Shiney, Amisha, Vidya and Rajpal starrer, BHOOL BHULAIYAA, is expected to take the initial rounds from Pradeep Sarkar's Jaya, Rani, Konkona, Kunal and Abhishek (extended special appearance) starrer, LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG. However, being a well made movie, the latter is banking on good word-of-mouth. While BHOOL BHULAIYAA is expected to release with around 600-650 prints, LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG is likely to release with 400-450 prints, following the CHAK DE! INDIA example.

The poor spell at the box-office continues, mainly due to bad films and partly due to the dull 'Ramzaan' period. The new releases of last Friday opened to such dismal houses that it could have given heart attacks to people!

The openings of Ram Gopal Varma's GO, Swadeshi Entertainment's desi take-off on THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, CHHODON NAA YAAR, Percept Picture Company's 50 LAKH and Animaa Films' IT'S BREAKING NEWS, varied from dull to terrible, where-ever they released. Needless to add that all the four above mentioned movies are all set to flop at the box-office.

JOHNNY GADDAAR got the critical acclaim, both for the movie as well as its music, but at the ticket window, it had only dull/weak collections to show. In its initial week, the movie collected 80 lakhs from Bombay, 12.25 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 1.20 lakhs from Nasik, 32 lakhs from Delhi city, 6.50 lakhs from Gurgaon, 2.50 lakhs from Faridabad, 6.30 lakhs from Noida, 2.20 lakhs from Kaushambi, 1 lakh each from Kanpur and Aligarh, 3.20 lakhs from Lucknow, 1.70 lakhs from Nagpur, 2.35 lakhs from Indore, 2.60 lakhs from Jaipur, and 10.35 lakhs from Calcutta. During the first week, JOHNNY GADDAAR netted around 3 crores from India and is a probable flop, unless a miracle happens in the second week, and that is unlikely.

Coming to DIL DOSTI ETC., its collections are also dull but its biggest advantage is its low budget and rock-bottom selling price. In its first week the Shreyas, Imaad and Nikita starrer collected 39 lakhs from Bombay, 7.70 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 20 lakhs from Delhi city, 4.80 lakhs from Gurgaon, 3.40 lakhs from Faridabad, 5.80 lakhs from Noida, 2.65 lakhs from Kaushambi, 1.10 lakhs from Nagpur, 4.1 lakhs from Indore and 7 lakhs from Calcutta. During the week, the Prakash Jha project collected around 1.50 crores from India and may scrape through to an average status, depending on its second week performance.
