The fantastic collections of Yamla Pagla Deewana in North India have brought back the smiles on the faces of the trade people. In other circuits too, the film has done well. Yamla Pagla Deewana proves a hit in East Punjab and semi-hit in Delhi-U.P. and Rajasthan. The film, produced by Nitin Manmohan and Samir Karnik, did a nett business of Rs. 330 million (Rs. 30 crore) approx in the first week. In good news, the distributor share for YPD is estimated to be around Rs. 180 million (Rs. 18 crore).

This is more good news for everyone associated with the film, after a good weekend opening, and the fact that producers had already made a profit on their investments in the film even before it released.

Last week’s other releases, Mumbai Mast Kallander and Turning 30!!! have failed to have much impact at the box-office. Mumbai Mast Kallander is a disaster and Turning 30!!! (English-Hindi & dubbed) also could not make much of a mark.

The Green Hornet (E.) is alright. The film collected a total of Rs. 91,95,330 from 90 cinemas. It’s Hindi dubbed version, Kanoon Ke Rakhwale did dull business. However, the Seth Rogen starrer led the Hollywood box-office in its opening weekend.

UTV Spotboy’s No One Killed Jessica dropped badly in 2nd week at many places while holding on reasonably well in some big cities.
