With SAAS BAHU AUR SENSEX having moved to 19th September, the coming Friday will now see as many as three releases in the form of Vikram Bhatt's horror film 1920, Randeep Hooda's RU-BA-RU and of course, Amitabh Bachchan's Rituparno Ghosh directed English language film, THE LAST LEAR. One feels that RU-BA-RU has nil chances, but the slick horror flick 1920 and especially the extremely well made (and critically acclaimed) THE LAST LEAR have the potential to make a mark at the ticket window.

Last Friday again saw another surprising success (after PHOONK and ROCK ON!!) in the form of Neeraj Pandey's Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher starrer, A WEDNESDAY. Though the film started on a dull note, the technically polished product had the merits to pick up and it did so as the weekend progressed. Given its low budget, the film is surely going to be another success for UTV Motion Pictures. The other two releases, Shiney Ahuja and Esha Deol's HIJACK and TAHAAN saw dull to poor houses with no improvement as the days progressed. The outcome of both HIJACK and TAHAAN looks bleak.

Abhishek Kapoor's Arjun-Farhan starrer ROCK ON!! is really rocking. Even the second week has commenced on a rock steady note! In its opening week ROCK ON!! had good numbers to show from the cities. During the week ROCK ON!! collected 2 crores from Bombay, 43 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 1.10 lakhs from Rajkot, 1.75 lakhs from Jamnagar, 27.35 lakhs from Pune, 3.60 lakhs from Nasik, 94 lakhs from Delhi City, 22.65 lakhs from Noida, 10 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 6.40 lakhs from Kanpur, 9.50 lakhs from Lucknow, 1.95 lakhs from Agra, 2.15 lakhs from Meerut, 34.15 lakhs from Gurgaon, 5 lakhs from Faridabad, 5.15 lakhs from Calcutta, 2.60 lakhs from Guwahati, 25.15 lakhs from Nagpur, 12.60 lakhs from Indore, 7.60 lakhs from Jaipur, 31.65 lakhs from Hyderabad and 8.35 lakhs from Mangalore. In its first week, ROCK ON!! has netted an impressive 9.75 crores from India and is already an average plus fare. The film is sure to get to a much higher rating in the coming weeks.

Balaji Motion Pictures Ltd.'s C KKOMPANY failed to impress the audience. In its opening week the film collected 65 lakhs from Bombay, 26 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 1.20 lakhs from Himmatnagar, 2.75 lakhs from Rajkot, 3.20 lakhs from Pune, 1.15 lakhs from Solapur, 1.25 lakhs from Nasik, 33.40 lakhs from Delhi City, 3.70 lakhs from Noida, 4.45 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 1.15 lakhs from Kanpur, 5.55 lakhs from Lucknow, 7.60 lakhs from Gurgaon, 3.85 lakhs from Faridabad, 4.75 lakhs from Nagpur, 2.40 lakhs from Indore, 6.25 lakhs from Jaipur, and 11 lakhs from Hyderabad. In its first week, C KKOMPANY has managed a very ordinary 3.60 crores from India and unless and until there
is a miraculous rise in its collections, the film will fail to touch even an average status.

The poor fate of Kabeer Kaushik's CHAMKU was obvious even before the movie released. The actual collections just confirmed it as CHAMKU collected 32.65 lakhs from Bombay, 12.35 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 1.75 lakhs from Rajkot, 1.30 lakhs from Pune, 1.05 lakhs from Solapur, 22.60 lakhs from Delhi City, 2 lakhs from Noida, 2.25 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 3.85 lakhs from Lucknow, 1.75 lakhs from Agra, 1.15 lakhs from Allahabad, 2.70 lakhs from Gurgaon, 1.76 lakhs from Nagpur, 3.70 lakhs from Jaipur and 5.65 lakhs from Hyderabad. The Bobby Deol-Priyanka Chopra starrer has netted a poor 2 crores in its first week from India and is a big flop.

If CHAMKU is a huge failure, there is worse to follow as Mani Shanker's MUKHBIIR has pathetic numbers to show. The film has collections like 3 lakhs from Bombay and 2 lakhs from Delhi city! Netting a poor 15 lakhs in its opening week from India, MUKHBIIR is washout.

Ram Gopal Varma's surprise hit, the starless PHOONK drops but the job has already been done. The film collected 52 lakhs from Bombay, 8.75 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 1 lakh from Hubli, 2 lakhs from Pune, 22.50 lakhs from Delhi city, 3 lakhs from Noida, 3.10 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 1.05 lakhs from Kanpur, 3.45 lakhs from Lucknow, 3.30 lakhs from Gurgaon, 1 lakh from Faridabad, 3.60 lakhs from Calcutta, 2.40 lakhs from Nagpur, 1.60 lakhs from Jalgaon, 2.55 lakhs from Indore, 1 lakh from Jaipur, 1.25 lakhs each from Bikaner and Mangalore, 1.30 lakhs from Nanded and 23 lakhs from Hyderabad. During the week, PHOONK added another 2.50 crores and has so far netted an
impressive 9.25 crores in two weeks from India. Unbelievable as it may sound but the 3 crore PHOONK can even end up with a super-hit status from India!

Meanwhile, the critically acclaimed, MUMBAI MERI JAAN managed some fair numbers in its second week. The film collected 30 lakhs from Bombay, 2.50 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 7 lakhs from Delhi city, 2.20 lakhs from Noida, 2.40 lakhs from Gurgaon and 1.60 lakhs from Hyderabad. Adding another 95 lakhs, MUMBAI MERI JAAN has netted 3.30 crores in two weeks from India. The film may just about get to a below average status from India.

Yash Raj's Bipasha, Ranbir, Deepika and Minissha starrer, BACHNA AE HASEENO maintained rather well. The Siddharth Anand directed film collected 56.50 lakhs from Bombay, 12.45 lakhs from Ahmedebad, 2.35 lakhs from Rajkot, 2 lakhs from Pune, 1 lakh from Nasik, 63.15 lakhs from Delhi City, 11 lakhs from Noida, 4.75 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 4.45 lakhs from Kanpur, 8.55 lakhs from Lucknow, 1.40 lakhs from Agra, 1 lakh from Meerut, 1.20 lakhs from Aligarh, 13.20 lakhs from Gurgaon, 2.60 lakhs from Faridabad, 16.75 lakhs from Calcutta, 4.20 lakhs from Nagpur, 2.55 lakhs from Indore, 2.15 lakhs from Jaipur, 20.05 lakhs from Hyderabad and 1.45 lakhs from Aurangabad. With another 4 crores, BACHNA AE HASEENO has netted an impressive 34 crores in three weeks from India. The film is all set to achieve the coveted hit mark next week. BACHNA AE HASEENO has also performed quite well in the Overseas, grossing £294,057 from UK and $702,166 from US.
