There hasn't been a universal success for quite some time. The two new releases, Tathastu and Tom Dick and Harry, have only added to the tally of flops. Tathastu is lead actor Sanjay Dutt's biggest flop in U.K. since 2000 [check out Sanju's films in U.K.]. As for Tom Dick and Harry, even Himesh Reshammiya's hit music couldn't save it from sinking.

In the U.S., Water continues to show an upward trend. Despite biggies like M.I.3 and Poseidon as oppositions, the John-Lisa starrer has proved an instant hit with the Americans. In Australia too, Water is a major success story.

Weekend: May 12 - 14, 2006.
