*Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, as expected, made the most of an early start with its release a day earlier on Thursday, to cash in on Diwali festival weekend, The Suraj Barjatya-Salman Khan combine as well as its solo release status worked in its favour and the drought of major release for some time brought the film the biggest first day figure ever at the box office as the film collected a record Rs 41 crore on Thursday. The not so good word of mouth affected the collection and footfalls on day two, Friday as the film dropped by over 25 percent and collected Rs 30 crore. On Saturday, the film collected a little less over its Fridayfigures and could not grow on  Sunday finally ending its four day weekend with Rs 129.77 crore.

*Charlie Ke Chakkar Mein, a poor thriller with Naseeruddin Shah playing an investigator trying to track down a cache of cocaine and related murders, had the makings for a tedious watch. The film bombed badly falling short of even Rs one crore mark with just Rs 80 lakh trickling in.

*Ranbanka, with Ravi Kishen in the lead, was expected to help the makers make a decent box office in UP and Bihar, belied expectations. The film managed to collect just Rs 10 lakh in its first week nationally.

*Yaara Silly Silly and Four Pillars Of Basement collected just Rs 15 lakh and Rs 25 lakh, respectively, in their first week.

*Titli collected 40 lakh in its second week taking its two week total to 2 crore.

**Main Aur Charles had a poor second week managing to collect just Rs 90 lakh to take its two week total to Rs 6.5 crore.

*Shaandaar added Rs 25 lakh in its third week to take its three week tally to Rs 35.25 crore.

*Pyaar Ka Punchnama held strong in its fourth week by collecting Rs 2.45 crore and takes its four week to Rs 61.15 crore.
