KAHAANI is the best over-all performer of the quarter followed by AGNEEPATH. Dharma Productions' EK MAIN AUR EKK TU did above average business while PAAN SINGH TOMAR may just break-even. Only AGNEEPATH, among the 30 odd films released during the quarter, crossed the Rs.100 crore mark and collected about Rs.124 crores net of taxes.
According to a rough guess the industry on the whole lost about Rs.70 crores in this quarter against an extremely optimistic estimated turnover of around Rs.380 crores net.
