Next Friday will in all probabilities see a very even contest between Ajay Devgan's directorial debut venture, U, ME AUR HUM and Rakesh Roshan's Jaideep Sen directed KRAZZY 4. Though efforts were made to avoid a clash between the two diverse releases, things did not work out. One feels that of the two, the 25 crore Ajay- Kajol starrer, U, Me AUR HUM will have a longer shelf life, as compared to the 18-20 crore Juhi, Arshad, Irrfan, Suresh and Rajpal starrer, KRAZZY 4, though the initial honours will go to the latter. And that due to the item numbers by the superstar and superhero Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan!

Last Friday's three releases progressed as per our predictions. Samar Khan's Rahul Bose, Kay Kay Menon, Jaaved Jafferi, Minissha Lamba and Deepak Dobriyal starrer SHAURYA was off to a dull start but picked up during the weekend. With some luck SHAURYA may sail through to safety, thanks to its low budget/selling prices and last but not the least the classy performances combined with the critical appreciation that the film has received from many quarters. On the other hand the Naseeruddin Shah starrer KHUDA KAY LIYE (from Pakistan) had a so-so to below the mark start but picked up noticeably as the weekend progressed. The film is expected to fare better in cities like Bombay, Pune, Bangalore and Hyderabad. One must add fere that both SHAURYA and KHUDA KAY LIYE have had a limited release, and that along with the two big releases of the coming Friday, will reduce the chances of success further. The last release of the week, BHRAM had poor start and is all set to fail at the ticket window.
