Student of the Year gets top marks
All India collections: Rs 28.5 crores (opening weekend)
'Student Of The Year' has passed with flying colours and with it, producer Karan Johar has scored a hattrick this year at the box office (his other successes being Agneepath and Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu). Despite a cast featuring three debutantes in the lead roles, the movie has been appreciated by audiences, even though it drew lukewarm reviews from critics. 'Chakravyuh' and 'Rush' may edge out a few shows of SOTY from theatres after they release this week, but it looks like the movie will still find ready audiences for the next few days.

All India collections: Rs 37 lakh
It's a pity that 'Delhi Safari' has fared so poorly at the box office because despite glowing reviews, promotions for the film were not aggressive enough. One hopes that the movie will do well on home video, as it is unlikely to catch up, what with three more Bollywood releases opening this week.

'OMG Oh My God' and 'English Vinglish' continue to perform decently at the box office. While 'OMG' inches closer to the coveted Rs 100 crore mark with Rs 75 crore in its fourth week, the Sridevi-starrer has amassed an impressive Rs 29 crore in its third weekend.

"You remind me of Shabana Azmi," guffaws our don't-give-a-damn hero to the social activist heroine. In the first-half they clash over idlis, ideologies and idle chatter. Mismatched as they are, and we are reminded twice that she is older, Kareena Kapoor-Khan and Imran Khan trudge along cutely till mid-point after which the narrative shuffles noisily into a village in Gujarat where it all falls apart.
"Last Vegas" is a funny, heartwarming and a touching buddy film about ageing and male bonding whose premise is so very much like the 2009 released film "The Hangover". But unlike in "The Hangover", these four buddies are geriatrics who jam up after 58 years of separation.
