This Friday will see the release of Shirish Kunder's Akshay-Sonakshi starrer JOKER. Given the fact that the month has already seen a blockbuster in the form of EK THA TIGER (still counting!) and since JOKER does not carry the hype and the popular music that should be associated with a big project, the equation becomes quite tough for the film, despite a very reasonable selling price (around 40 crores).

The other listed releases of the week include FROM SYDNEY WITH LOVE and JALPARI – THE DESERT MERMAID, and both have little or no chances at the ticket window!
