The coming Friday will see the release of Sikandar Kher's directorial debut venture, WOODSTOCK VILLA and the Jimmy Shergill starrer, HASTEY HASTEY. Given the promotion, the suspense angle and also the good promotion, Sanjay Gupta's WOODSTOCK VILLA looks the front runner but the Rohit Batra written HASTEY HASTEY may just impress in regions that patronize comedy, thanks to the good punch lines.

From the last Friday's releases, Mithun Chakraborthy's DON MUTHU SWAMI and Shashi Ranjan's DHOOM DADAKKA both had a poor to weak opening and are likely to go largely unnoticed. The third release of the week, Shemaroo Entertainment's animated GHATOTHKACH had a dull to weak start and will turn out to be a disappointing fare at the ticket window, though it will score once the home video is released.

Vishesh Films' JANNAT has done very well and is sure to fetch overflow from the second week itself. The Kunal Deshmukh directed film collected 2.40 crores from Bombay, 95 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 4.50 lakhs from Baroda, 2.15 lakhs from Palanpur, 2.85 lakhs from Himmatnagar, 1.50 lakhs from Deesa, 10.65 lakhs from Rajkot, 4.50 lakhs from Jamnagar, 5.70 lakhs from Bhavnagar, 1.50 lakhs from Porbandar, 1.10 lakhs from Surendranagar, 1 lakh from Junagarh, 1.20 lakhs from Morbi, 1.50 lakhs from Bhuj, 2.90 lakhs from Gandhidham, 1.15 lakhs from Adipur, 13.50 lakhs from Pune, 2 lakhs from Solapur, 2.25 lakhs from Sangli, 6.20 lakhs from Nasik, 1.60 crores from Delhi, 16.50 lakhs from Noida, 14.20 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 14.15 lakhs from Kanpur, 19.20 lakhs from Lucknow, 6 lakhs from Agra, 1.85 lakhs from Allahabad, 3.95 lakhs from Meerut, 5.75 lakhs from Aligarh, 2.20 lakhs from Amritsar, 19.75 lakhs Gurgaon, 14.75 lakhs from Faridabad, 2.05 lakhs from Panipat, 60.15 lakhs
