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' 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.

"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.
