Poor publicity and an overriding morbid theme have ensured a lacklustre opening week for this dark thriller set in London.
Pro: Jimmy Sheirgill and Kay Kay Menon; the unique premise
Con: Lack of hype or big stars
I Am Legend
Unlike most Hollywood releases in Calcutta, this Will Smith-starrer has had a decent start at the box office.
Pro: Will Smith; the CGI monsters
Con: The last half hour
Good opening week figures show that Calcutta has warmed up to this cute doggie flick.
Pro: Adorable dogs; fun plot
Con: Nothing new to offer
The city has given a thumbs down to this teenage high school flick.
Pro: Some funny gags and one-liners
Con: Been there, seen that
Khoya Khoya Chand
Sudhir Mishras tribute to Bollywood of the 1950s and 60s has sunk further in Week Two.
Pro: Shiney Ahuja; Shantanu Moitras music; the nostalgia
Con: Soha Ali Khan is completely miscast
An average opening week has translated into a poor Week Two for this 10-in-1 multistarrer.
Pro: Innovative concept; some short stories are engrossing; the return of the Naseer-Shabana pair
Con: Most shorts are too manipulative in their bid to impress
Om Shanti Om
OSO continues to score high even in its fifth week.
Pro: Shah Rukh and Deepika; Farahs sense of humour; the music
Con: Second half not as good as the first
