How did this week's releases (Life of Pi, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2) perform at the box office? We take a look...
BO performance of Life of Pi
All India collections: Rs 19.5 crore (opening weekend)
Ang Lee's 'Life of Pi', starring Irrfan Khan and Tabu, has managed to amass a decent amount of money over the weekend. It released in four languages across the country (English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu) and garnered rave reviews from critics across the board. The collections of 'Life of Pi' are impressive as the movie has managed to stand ground even while Diwali releases 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' and 'Son of Sardaar', continue to battle it out for box office supremacy. No figures were available for the other mega Hollywood release this week, i.e. the last Twilight movie

Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son of Sardaar
'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' and 'Son of Sardaar' continued to slug it out, but Yash Chopra's swan song has pulled ahead, amassing close to Rs 109 crore in the domestic market. 'Son of Sardaar' isn't far behind, having collected Rs 94 crore after its second week. All eyes are on 'Talaash' now to see whether Aamir can throw a spanner into the almost uninterrupted run both movies have had at the box office

If Spike Jonze's 'Her' imagined a delicate, heartfelt romance between man and his artificially intelligent operating system, then 'Transcendence', directed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister, takes a less optimistic view of the future, cautioning us about the dangers of relying too heavily on technology. They're two sides of the same coin, but where 'Her' felt fresh, original, and forward-looking, Pfister's film trades in familiar clichés.
