Box-office top 5
Cast : Amitabh Bachchan, Manoj Bajpayee, Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Prateik Babbar
Director : Prakash Jha
Trade Facts : After matching the hype with a huge opening, the film on reservation failed to rake in the audience in the second week. Aarakshan is holding on to the No.1 spot not because of its star cast and worth, but only because the other new releases haven't fared well. Tsk! Tsk!
Cast : Mahie Gill, Deepak Dobriyal, Ajay Gehi
Director : Ram Gopal Varma
Trade Facts : RGV's quickie film on Maria Susairaj has failed to captivate the audience. And that's probably because of its distasteful sexualization of the lead character, as our critic pointed out.
Cast : Sanjay Dutt, Ameesha Patel, Suresh Menon, Anupam Kher, Satish Kaushik
Director : Ajay Chandok
Trade Facts : This wannabe Pink Panther flick dropped like a stone at the box office. All said and done, Inspector Clouseau is an icon. And Sanjay Dutt's Chatur Singh is a far cry from it.
Cast : Parvin Dabbas, Vansh Bhardwaj, Ashish Nair, Tena Desae, Kiran Juneja, Anupam Kher
Director : Parvin Dabbas
Trade Facts : Sadly, Parvin Dabbas' directorial debut failed to pick up steam at the box office. It's a fun, relevant film that deserves a watch. Considering the current staple at theatres, one would think folks are queuing up to watch this film.
