This week will see the release of Vipul Shah's Barnali Ray Shukla directed, KUCCH LUV JAISAA. Of course there are a few lesser known projects like COLLEGE CAMPUS, ME MAMU & 7 etc. also listed for release but it will be the Shefali-Rahul starrer KUCCH LUV JAISAA that will take the pole position, especially with its 'hat ke' treatment and theme!

KUCCH LUV JAISAA
Last Friday's three releases, PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA, 404 and KASHMAKASH (dubbed), failed to cut much ice with the audience and it was just PKP that saw some patronage (stable with low end collections in the weekdays too), while 404 and KASHMAKASH failing from the first show itself. The audience instead preferred the Hollywood release, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES and its dubbed version, SAMUNDER KE LOOTERE: EK ANJAAN RAHASYA.

LOVE U… MR KALAKAAR
The performance of the well made LOVE U…MR. KALAKAAR! was quite disheartening as the weekdays proved to be very poor. The film collected 15 lakhs from Bombay (collections from 39 cinemas unreceived), 12 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 1.35 lakhs from Baroda (collections from 3 cinemas unreceived), 2 lakhs from Rajkot, 1.35 lakhs from Jamnagar, 1 lakh from Bhavnagar, 1 lakh from Pune (collections from other cinemas unreceived), 12 lakhs from Delhi city, 1.15 lakhs from Noida, 2 lakhs from Lucknow, 1 lakh from Aligarh, 5 lakhs from Calcutta (collections from other cinemas unreceived), 2.35 lakhs from Nagpur, 2.20 lakhs from Raipur, 11 lakhs from Jaipur, 1 lakh from Jodhpur, 2 lakhs from Hyderabad (collections from other cinemas unreceived) and 2 lakhs from Bangalore. During the first week, LOVE U…MR. KALAKAAR! netted a poor 1.30 crores and the film has failed at the box-office.
