The coming Friday will see an almost open week with no significant releases. There are a couple of names like the Urdu film from Pakistan, SALAKHAIN and Ramsay's KHANDALA HOUSE, which has already released and flopped in the Northern parts of the country. The only known film that was listed for release was Mimoh Chakraborty's JIMMY, but that has now been postponed to the 16th of May.

The much awaited contest between Ajay Devgan's directorial debut venture, U ME AUR HUM and Rakesh Roshan's Jaideep Sen directed KRAZZY 4, went exactly as we had predicted in our last column. The 25 crore Ajay-Kajol starrer, U Me AUR HUM had a dull Friday in Bombay and outside of Bombay, the opening was weak almost everywhere. Thankfully, the film picked up on both Saturday and Sunday, but fell again on Monday. On the other hand, the 18-20 crore Juhi, Arshad, Irrfan, Suresh and Rajpal starrer, KRAZZY 4, took the initial honours getting a good first day in Bombay and the opening was good almost everywhere. KRAZZY 4 held on to its collections quite well during the weekend, though it had a big fall on Monday. In the Overseas, Kajol's presence assured that U ME AUR HUM dominated KRAZZY 4. In the UK, U ME AUR HUM grossed $338,281 as compared to KRAZZY 4's $127,384, while in the US, once again U ME AUR HUM impressed by grossing $642,923 as compared to $322,426 for KRAZZY 4.

Coming to SHAURYA, the Samar Khan directed film, impressed with its performance despite a limited release . The film collected 35 lakhs from Bombay, 4.05 lakhs from Pune, 25 lakhs from Delhi, 5.50 lakhs from Noida, 4.20 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 1.40 lakhs from Kanpur, 6.65 lakhs from Gurgaon, 1.65 lakhs from Faridabad, 7.65 lakhs from Calcutta 1.10 lakhs from Nagpur, 3 lakhs from Indore and 6 lakhs (approx) from Hyderabad. The Rahul Bose, Kay Kay Menon, Jaaved Jafferi, Minissha Lamba and Deepak Dobriyal starrer SHAURYA netted slightly less than 2 crores in India during its opening week. Given the low budget and release costs, the film is on way to being an average fare at the box-office.

BHRAM is supreme disaster, having netted less than 50 lakhs during its opening week in India. Just for stats, the film collected 13.15 lakhs from Bombay, 2.55 lakhs from Delhi and 1.60 lakhs from Ghaziabad.

The Naseeruddin Shah starrer KHUDA KAY LIYE (from Pakistan), picked up but not enough to succeed. During the week the Shoaib Mansoor directed film collected close to 30 lakhs from Bombay, 7 lakhs from Delhi, 1.75 lakhs from Noida, 1.80 lakhs from Gurgaon and 2.15 lakhs from Hyderabad. KHUDA KAY LIYE netted around 80 lakhs in its first week from India and is likely to be a commercial failure in India.
