Running solely on Dharma and Karan Johar�۪s brand value, this week�۪s big release ��Student Of The Year�۪ has opened to a decent response at the Indian box office.

Starring three newcomers Siddharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan, the film opened well at multiplexes with collections at around 45-50% (source:��Box Office India) in the metros with Delhi being the strongest. In the long run, Hollywood release ��Skyfall�۪ which hits the marquee next week will inevitably decide the fate of Johar�۪s campus romance at the turnstiles.

Moving on to other releases, diva Sridevi�۪s comeback ��English Vinglish�۪ has done decent business in India and is a success overseas grossing approximately �345,000 in the UK (source: BFI).

The other comeback vehicle ��Aiyyaa�۪ starring Rani Mukerji, meanwhile is a disaster all round. It collected just �19,000 in the UK in its opening week��(source:��BFI).

Akshay Kumar�۪s ��OMG! Oh My God�۪ continues its dream run and is now closing in on Rs 72 Crore in India (source:��Box Office India). It�۪s doing exceptionally well in the UK too.

India�۪s official entry to the Oscars, the Ranbir Kapoor-Priyanka Chopra starrer ��Barfi!�۪ has now collected �710,000 in the UK (source:��Box Office Mojo). A surprise success it is now slowly on its way out.
