JODHAA AKBAR

There is no new film worth mentioning, listed for release next Friday. And why only next Friday? The first significant release will be in the shape of Subhash Ghai's Anil Kapoor starrer, BLACK & WHITE, hitting the screens on 7th March.

Coming to the first major project of 2008, Ashutosh Gowariker's Hrithik-Aishwarya starrer, JODHAA AKBAR, the movie started on a fair to average note, but picked up significantly as the weekend progressed. The makers have declared a healthy weekend figure of 16-17 crores. Released at around 90 plus cinemas of Bombay by UTV Motion Pictures, the film had a fair start. Outside of Bombay, the film was weak in some smaller circuits of East India, average in C.P. Berar and C.I. and good in Nizam and Delhi NCR. Trade feels that the quite expensive film will have to show a good run for at least a couple of weeks, before it can think in terms of success. Opening in UK was good, with a gross of $717,085 and in US excellent, as the movie grossed $1,602,356 (4-day weekend). By and large, the overseas circuit has reported good collection.
