How did the releases this week fare at the box office? We take a look...
BO performance of Barfi!
All India collections: 41.10 crores (4-day collection)
With a limited release, 'Barfi!' still seem to be drawing the audiences in and a major reason for the same is glowing reviews from the critics for Ranbir's performance. The movie collected a whopping 34 crores over the weekend.
Projection for next week: Given the rave reviews and positive word-of-mouth publicity the movie has received, 'Barfi!' will continue to do moderately well in the week to come. However, cousin Kareena is waiting in the wings to steal Ranbir's thunder with 'Heroine' that releases this Friday and it remains to be seen how critics receive Madhur Bhandarkar's next, that is one of the most eagerly awaited films of the year.
BO performance of Jeena Hai Toh Thok Daal
Ravi Kissen might have thought that Ranbir Kapoor was no competition for him, but he was sadly mistaken. 'Jeena Hai Toh Thok Daal' has been written off as a box office disaster.
BO performance of last week's releases
'Raaz 3' has now amassed Rs 64 crores but made less than expected in its second week at the box office. The makers and cast may have hoped that the movie touches the magic 100 crore mark, but it's unlikely that the Bhatt thriller will make more than 75 crores. However, there is still much to cheer about as the movie is now the biggest grosser ever in the horror genre.

"You remind me of Shabana Azmi," guffaws our don't-give-a-damn hero to the social activist heroine. In the first-half they clash over idlis, ideologies and idle chatter. Mismatched as they are, and we are reminded twice that she is older, Kareena Kapoor-Khan and Imran Khan trudge along cutely till mid-point after which the narrative shuffles noisily into a village in Gujarat where it all falls apart.
"Last Vegas" is a funny, heartwarming and a touching buddy film about ageing and male bonding whose premise is so very much like the 2009 released film "The Hangover". But unlike in "The Hangover", these four buddies are geriatrics who jam up after 58 years of separation.
