It's dhoom time all over. The film has embarked on a hurricane-like start everywhere, in India as well as in the Overseas territory. Since this column is essentially about the international box-office, let's shed light on the astounding collections in the three major markets -- U.K., U.S.A. and Australia.

In United Kingdom, dhoom has embarked on the second biggest start of 2006, after Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. For Hrithik, it's his second biggest opener after Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and for Abhishek, again, his second biggest after Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna.

In the United States, dhoom has fetched a stupendous start in the Thanksgiving Weekend. In fact, the fabulous opening ranks amongst the biggest openers in the Overseas territory ever. Should we add more? 

In Australia too, dhoom is the second biggest opener this year, after Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. But when compared to other biggies in this country, it's marched past Salaam Namaste, which was the second biggest opener. In New Zealand too, dhoom is in the 'Top 10' charts this week, occupying the No. 8 position.

Weekend: November 24 - 26, 2006.
