With the stalemate between producers/distributors and the multiplexes still on, there continues to be uncertainty over the release of even decent projects. Once again we have relatively unknown films like MERI PADOSAN, KOOL NAHI HOT HAIN HUM, ROOH and COFFEE HOUSE! Giving them company is going to be Kamal Haasan's dubbed film, DASHAVTAR. It is obvious that none of the mentioned movies are going to have any impact, whatsoever at the ticket window. The only movie that can find some limited patronage looks like Kamal's DASHAVTAR and that too due to his core fans and the decent music.

The releases of last Friday, Arshad Warsi's eleventh hour release, EK SE BURE DO, the much delayed Mahie Gill, Ajay Jadeja and Vinod Kambli starrer PAL PAL DIL KE SSAAT and the Ravi K Patwa directed ROYAL UTSAV have all been outrightly rejected. The audience have given a strong signal that they are not ready to venture out to see inferior projects.

CHECK OUT: Multiplexes in doldrums...

Checking out the performance of the last major multiplex release, Percept Picture Company's Nagesh Kukunoor directed Akshay Kumar and Ayesha Takia starrer, 8x10 TASVEER, it is a total loss. The film has very ordinary collections to show with 1.85 crores from Bombay, 45 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 1.25 lakhs from Valsad, 2 lakhs from Nadiad, 1 lakh each from Palanpur and Himmatnagar, 1.50 lakhs from Mehsana, 2.50 lakhs from Jamnagar, 10 lakhs from Pune, 1.75 lakhs from Solapur, 1.20 lakhs from Sangli, 4 lakhs from Nasik, 2.50 lakhs from Belgaum, 1.05 crores from Delhi city, 21 lakhs from Noida, 10 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 6 lakhs from Kanpur, 15 lakhs from Lucknow, 4 lakhs from Agra, 1.25 lakhs from Allahabad, 2.15 lakhs from Meerut, 2.25 lakhs from Gorakhpur, 7.50 lakhs from Chandigarh, 2 lakhs from Zirakpur, 23 lakhs from Gurgaon, 8 lakhs from Faridabad, 1 lakh from Pathankot, 10 lakhs from Calcutta, 1.75 lakhs from Guwahati, 11.25 lakhs from Nagpur, 1.10 lakhs from Jabalpur, 1.15 lakhs from Dhule, 2.15 lakhs from Raipur, 1.25 lakhs from Durg, 8.65 lakhs from Indore, 2.15 lakhs from Bhopal, 15.35 lakhs from Jaipur, 2 lakhs from Ajmer, 1.50 lakhs from Bikaner, 23.50 lakhs from Hyderabad and 3.75 lakhs from Mangalore. Netting around 9.25 crores in its opening week from India, 8 X 10 TASVEER is a trade disaster. The film has also been rejected totally in the Overseas.

CHECK OUT: 8X10 TASVEER - The biggest disaster?

The Nana Patekar - Bobby Deol starrer, EK-THE POWER OF ONE has no power left and has crashed. The film collected 12 lakhs from Bombay, 2.05 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 1.75 lakhs each from Baroda and Surat, 4.10 lakhs from Delhi city, 1.15 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 2.75 lakhs from Lucknow, 1 lakh from Agra, 1.05 lakhs from Nagpur, 2 lakhs from Jaipur, 3 lakhs from Hyderabad and 1.50 lakhs from Aurangabad. Adding a further 90 lakhs, EK - THE POWER OF ONE has netted 5.40 crores in two weeks from India. The film is a dismal flop.

Jehangir Surti's AA DEKHEN ZARA too has crashed badly in its second week. The film collected 9 lakhs from Bombay, 5 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 15 lakhs from Delhi city, 3.50 lakhs from Noida, 1 lakh from Ghaziabad, 4 lakhs from Lucknow, 1.20 lakhs from Faridabad and 3.20 lakhs from Hyderabad. Adding another 75 lakhs, AA DEKHEN ZARA has netted just around 4.75 crores in two weeks from India. Needless to add that the Neil-Bipasha starrer is a big failure.

CHECK OUT: Will Linda manage what other heroines from West couldn't?

Moving on to Aftab Shivdasani's ALOO CHAAT, the film leaves a bad taste in the mouth with pathetic collections in its third week. The film collected 3.15 lakhs from Bombay, 4 lakhs from Delhi city, 1.25 lakhs from Noida, 1 lakh each (approx) from Ghaziabad and Lucknow and 2 lakhs from Gurgaon. With another 25 lakhs during its latest outing, ALOO CHAAT has netted around 4.60 crores in three weeks from India. The film is another huge flop for Bollywood.

In fact it is the English film, FAST AND FURIOUS that has done extremely well, as compared to the regular Hindi films. The film collected 60 lakhs from Bombay, 10 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 43 lakhs from Delhi city, 11.15 lakhs from Noida, 1.35 lakhs from Ghaziabad , 1.05 lakhs from Chandigarh, 13 lakhs from Gurgaon, 2 lakhs each from Calcutta and Indore and 6.75 lakhs from Mangalore. The combined total of FAST AND FURIOUS and its Hindi dubbed version RAFTAAR KA JUNOON is an impressive 2.75 crores (net) from India. And that is quite impressive!
