View the source of the HTML file that PHP outputs to create the form.  Does the return URL show up correctly?  Can you copy/paste it into the address bar, and it shows correctly with the GET variables?  Here's a better way to clarify to PHP what you want to treat as a string, and what you want to treat as a var etc...:

echo '<form id="form1" name="upfrm" method="post" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr">'."\n";
echo '                      <div align="center">'."\n";
echo '                      <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick" />'."\n";
echo '           <input type="hidden" name="business" value="'.$pemail.'" />'."\n";
echo '            <input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Images in DNB PHOTOGRAPHY" />'."\n";
echo '                        <input type="hidden" name="cart_id" value="'.$cart_id.'" />'."\n";
echo '                        <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="'.$totp.'" />'."\n";
echo '                        <input type="hidden" name="first_name" value="'.$name.'" />'."\n";
echo '                        <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD" />'."\n";
echo '                        <input type="hidden" name="uid" value="'.$uid.'" />'."\n";
echo '                        <input type="hidden" name="cn" value="DNB PHOTOGRAPHY  payment gateway!" />'."\n";
echo '<input type="hidden" name="return" value="'.$site_url.'/bala/thanks.php?total='.$totp.'&cart_id='.$cart_id.'&uid='.$uid.'" />'."\n";
echo '                <input type="hidden" name="cancel_return" value="'.$site_url.'/bala/thanks.php?total='.$totp.'&cart_id='.$cart_id.'&uid='.$uid.'&fail=fail" />'."\n";
echo '                          <input name="Submit" type="submit" class="colorbuttonsh" value="Online Pay" />."\n";
echo '                          </a>'."\n";
echo '                        </div>'."\n";
echo '                         </form>'."\n";

^^ This way you don't have to remember if you escaped this character, or that character etc...Use single quotes around text, then concatenate it with a variable (.$var.), and continue on with a single quote string.
