The only true blue new release this Friday is going to be UTV Motion Pictures' John Abraham, Arshad Warsi, Bipasha Basu, Boman Irani and Naveen Andrew starrer, DHAN DHANA DHAN GOAL. One feels that the music of the film had a lot of potential but needed more time to grow and the 'Diwali' release OM SHANTI OM will again be very strong, next weekend. As a result, GOAL may not be able to perform to its full potential. However, the performance in UK is expected to be good.

As there were no releases last Friday, let us checkout the opening week performance of the first 'Diwali' release, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's SAAWARIYA. As we had indicated last week itself, the Ranbir, Sonam, Salman (special appearance) and Rani starrer could not hold its collection after the first three days. The collections nosedived on the 4th and 5th day. Still, thanks mainly to the first weekend, SAAWARIYA has managed to yield a distributors share of around 12 crore. Checking out the numbers, SAAWARIYA collected 3.55 crores from Bombay, 1.15 crores from Ahmedabad, 4.50 lakhs from Valsad, 38 lakhs from Baroda, 3.25 lakhs from Himmatnagar, 4.60 lakhs from Mehsana, 1.10 lakhs from Deesa, 1.60 lakhs from Patan, 1 lakh each from Dahod and Veraval, 4 lakhs from Palanpur, 19 lakhs from Rajkot, 6.65 lakhs from Jamnagar, 7.50 lakhs from Bhavnagar, 2 lakhs from Porbandar, 1.30 lakhs from Surendarnagar, 1.70 lakhs from Junagarh, 1.20 lakhs from Jetpur, 2 lakhs from Bhuj, 1.20 lakhs from Madhapur, 3.50 lakhs from Gandhidham, 2.85 lakhs from Solapur, 7.50 lakhs from Nasik, 1.52 crores from Delhi city, 19 lakhs from Noida, 31.20 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 24.15 lakhs from Lucknow, 6.40 lakhs from Agra, 5.70 lakhs from
