The coming Friday will see two interesting releases, DIL DOSTI ETC. and JOHNNY GADDAAR. Banking on the campus theme and youthful music, Prakash Jha's DIL DOSTI ETC. will try to entice the campus crowd. On the hand, Sriram Raghavan's Dharmendra, Neil Mukesh starrer JOHNNY GADDAAR has its unique theme and somewhat popular music as its USP.

Last Friday's Priyadarshan directed DHOL had a dull start in Bombay and was below the mark in many circuits, but the opening was good in Delhi-U.P. MANORAMA SIX FEET UNDER had a poor start in Bombay and the opening was weak everywhere. The third release of the week, LOINS OF PUNJAB, had a poor opening everywhere. While DHOL will have a dull run at the box-office, its reasonable price is its biggest asset and will see it through in a few circuits, MANORAMA SIX FEET UNDER may go unnoticed. LOINS OF PUNJAB may not be well-patronized due to a poor title, English language and an elitist appeal.
