With Yash Raj Films' big gun, EK THA TIGER, all set to boom from next week (read August 15), a host of releases are lined up for this week. While GANGS OF WASSEYPUR II sees a Wednesday release, MAIN KRISHNA HOON (unconfirmed), OVERTIME, SECOND MARRIGE DOT COM and 5 GHANTEY MEIN 5 CRORE will arrive on the regular day that is Friday. Needless to add that it will just be Anurag Kashyap's GANGS OF WASSYPUR II which will make a mark at the ticket window, but only till ETT arrives!

Checking out the new releases of last week, and predictably it was just Pooja Bhatt's Sunny Leone starrer, JISM 2, which saw a good performance, but it lasted only till the first day! The film started falling from the second day itself and after a nominal pick up on Sunday crashed from Monday onwards. Having said that the film will fare very much like FERRARI KI SAWAARI, that is profitable for the makers but a loss making venture for the distributors. JISM 2 has also disappointed in the overseas grossing and#163;14,000 from UK and $ 26,500 from the US during the opening weekend (3-5 August).

The other releases of the week, YEH JO MOHABBAT HAI and the animated KRISHNA AUR KANS failed to make any mark at the ticket window.
