Box-office top 5
Cast : Saqib Saleem, Saba Azad, Nishant Dahiya, Tara D'Souza
Director : Nupur Ashtana
Trade Facts : The young & fresh cast have won over the audience with their earnestness and snazzy dialogues. The film by itself may not be much, but this bunch promised an easy-breezy watch and that was just what the doctor ordered.
Cast : Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Kangana Ranaut, Lisa Haydon
Director : David Dhawan
Trade Facts : This sad excuse for comedy clings to the second spot by the skin on its nose. Honestly, there's nothing that can be said in its defense.
Cast : Prateik Babbar, Kalki Koechlin
Director : Nishikant Kamath
Trade Facts : With the fresh pairing of Prateik & Kalki, the film came with a lot of promise. But it failed to capitalise on the anticipation with a convoluted plot.
Cast : Sachin Joshi, Candice Boucher
Director : Prashant Chadha
Trade Facts : The action flick managed to make its presence felt by debuting at No.4. We're not sure if it's the magic of Playboy star Candice Boucher, or the attraction of the film's foreign locales. But it works and made for an okay opening.
Cast : Ayesha Takia, Ranvijay, Raghubir Yadav, Tanvi Azmi
Director : Nagesh Kukunoor
Trade Facts : We can't believe this bizarre thriller is from the maker of fantastic films such as Hyderabad Blues and Iqbal. While the premise is interesting, the second half leaves the audience in a lurch. This frustrating flick got enough people to watch it and bring it to a No.5. But we doubt it'll be in the race next week.
