Get set for another crowded week at the box-office, with as many as four releases – SHAGIRD, STANLEY KA DABBA, RAGINI MMS and LOVE U… MR. KALAKAAR! It is going to be a straight battle between Ekta's RAGINI MMS and Rajshri's LOVE U…MR. KALAKAAR! It is more or less certain that RAGINI MMS is all set to emerge a winner thanks to some superb promos and publicity, but then the family audience may well prefer LOVE U… MR. KALAKAAR!

Last Friday's clash between Vikram Bhatt's HAUNTED 3D and Y-Films' LUV KA THE END turned out to be totally one sided as the Mahakshay starrer comprehensively trumped the Yash Raj venture! The weekend gross of HAUNTED 3D was almost four times that of LUV KA THE END, and given the controlled budget the film is all set to succeed at the box-office.

Govinda's NAUGHTY @ 40 saw poor collections and even at mass oriented centres the performance was quite ordinary. The film collected 25 lakhs from Bombay, 11 lakhs from Ahmedabad (collections from 2 cinemas unreceived), 2.55 lakhs from Baroda, 4 lakhs from Surat, 1 lakh from Mehsana, 2.25 lakhs from Rajkot, 1 lakh from Gandhidham, 4 lakhs from Pune, 1.50 lakhs from Malegaon, 1 lakh from Goa, 15 lakhs from Delhi city, 2 lakhs from Lucknow, 1 lakh from Allahabad, 1.15 lakhs from Nagpur, 1 lakh from Sehore and 5 lakhs from Hyderabad. Netting just around 1.50 crores, NAUGHTY @ 40 has flopped at the box-office.

Netting around 6 crores from India, CHALO DILLI is likely to end up as an average fare, after all the rights have been accounted for.

Onir's I AM was never expected to be a box-office conquering venture and was always designed as a festival circuit project. Accordingly the film saw poor returns as it collected 10 lakhs from Bombay (collections from 7 cinemas unreceived), 1 lakh from Pune (collections from other cinemas unreceived), 6.25 lakhs from Delhi city, 1.35 lakhs from Noida, 2 lakhs from Gurgaon, 3 lakhs from Calcutta (collections from other cinemas unreceived), 2 lakhs from Hyderabad and 4.55 lakhs from Bangalore.

I AM has garnered a lot of critical acclaim but is a commercial failure netting just 45 lakhs in the opening week from India.
