The coming Friday will see the clash of THODA PYAAR THODA MAGIC and THODI LIFE THODA MAGIC! Nothing to be confused about, the Saif-Rani starrer THODA PYAAR THODA MAGIC is a Yash Raj venture, directed and co-produced by Kunal Kohli, while THODI LIFE THODA MAGIC is a small budgeted project, featuring Jackie Shroff and Arbaaz Khan. There is also a third release, the 'hat ke' VIA DARJEELING, starring the likes of Kay Kay, Pravin Dabas and Vinay Pathak. While THODI LIFE THODA MAGIC has no chances at all, even Kunal Kohli's co-production with Yash Raj Films, THODA PYAAR THODA MAGIC, has very little hype associated with it and is not likely to set the box-office on fire. With some luck VIA DARJEELING may impress at select multiplexes of Metros.

Last Friday saw a not so happy week for Bollywood, as none of the new releases made much of an impact at the ticket window. While Pahlaj Nihalani's KHUSHBOO had a poor opening, Kumar Mangat's HAAL-E-DIL fared better with a dull start. The bright lining is that the performance of the newcomers, especially that of Amita and Adhyayan was noticed and appreciated. The best collections (comparatively) came from Rising Star Entertainment's DE TAALI, but even they are nothing to write home about, despite the presence of stars like Aftab, Ritesh and Ayesha.



After a satisfactory weekend, Priyadarshan's Akshaye-Genelia starrer, MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP, faced a noticable fall from Monday. During the first week the film collected, 1.80 crore from Bombay, 95 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 3 lakhs from Patan, 1.60 lakhs from Palanpur, 1.30 lakhs from Deesa, 3 lakhs from Himmatnagar, 13.50 lakhs from Rajkot, 3.50 lakhs from Jamnagar, 6.55 lakhs (gross) from Bhavnagar, 2.15 lakhs from Gandhidham, 14.60 lakhs from Pune, 3.65 lakhs from Solapur, 2.20 lakhs from Sangli, 7.65 lakhs from Nasik, 1.65 crores from Delhi city, 21.65 lakhs from Noida, 11.75 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 9.20 lakhs from Kanpur, 25.45 lakhs from Lucknow, 6 lakhs (approx) from Agra, 1.45 lakhs from Allahabad, 3.85 lakhs from Meerut, 1.65 lakhs from Bareilly, 4.15 lakhs from Aligarh, 22.50 lakhs from Gurgaon, 13.70 lakhs from Faridabad, 3.15 lakhs from Panipat, 60 lakhs from Calcutta, 2.40 lakhs from Guwahati, 22.35 lakhs from Nagpur, 1.40 lakhs from Jabalpur, 2.80 lakhs from Amravati, 2.45 lakhs from Akola, 2.25 lakhs from Dhule, 2.60 lakhs Durg, 1.25 lakhs from Bhusawal, 1.60 lakhs from Chandrapur, 20 lakhs from Indore, 1 lakh from Ujjain, 35 lakhs from Jaipur, 3.60 lakhs (gross) from Ajmer, 4.60 lakhs from Bikaner, 47 lakhs (gross) from Hyderabad, 2.10 lakhs from Aurangabad and 4.45 lakhs from Mangalore. During its opening week, MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP has netted a fairly decent 15.85 crores from India and film is already a below average to average fare and with some luck may get to a higher status. MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP is quite stable in UK, having grossed $410,579 so far.

Sikander Kher's second project, SUMMER 2007, turns out to be worse than his first, WOODSTOCK VILLA. The film has pathetic collections to show and could not complete even a week's run at many places. The film collected 6.75 lakhs from Bombay, 2.30 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 3.10 lakhs from Pune, 3.10 lakhs from Delhi city, 1.15 lakhs from Noida, 1 lakh from Ghaziabad, 1 lakh (approx) from Lucknow and Nagpur and 1.25 lakhs from Hyderabad. Netting less than 40 lakhs from India in its opening week, SUMMER 2007 turns out to be a supreme disaster.

AAMIR has done well and is rock steady at select multiplexes. Taking into account its shoestring budget of only 2 crores, it will turn out be a plus venture.
