Box Office


Strangers

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


Air Buddies

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


Superbad

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 Mishra’s tribute to Bollywood of the 1950s and 60s has sunk further in Week Two.

Pro: Shiney Ahuja; Shantanu Moitra’s music; the nostalgia
Con: Soha Ali Khan is completely miscast


Dus Kahaniyaan

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; Farah’s sense of humour; the music
Con: Second half not as good as the first
