Something like this happens rarely! As many as four Hindi films feature in the 'Top 15' charts of U.K. this weekend, which is a big achievement indeed. While Paheli is holding very well in U.K., U.S.A. [going by New York figures] and Australia, the new release, Sarkar, has raked in decent figures in U.K., considering its genre and the number of prints in circulation. But it's Yakeen that has surprised one and all. The thriller, which opened to a poor response in India, has garnered an impressive opening in U.K.



Weekend: July 1 - 3, 2005.
