How did the Diwali releases of November 13 (Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Son of Sardaar) perform at the box office? We take a look...
BO performance of Jab Tak Hai Jaan
All India collections: Rs 80.73 crore (up to Sunday)
In its first week alone, Yash Chopra's magnum opus and swan song is already about to cross the Rs 100 crore mark in the domestic market. Reviews haven't been ecstatic (though we liked it and you can read our review here) but the public have come out in droves to lap up the King of Romance's last offering. The movie had already overtaken the competition in the multiplexes, but suffered a slight setback due to theatres being closed over the weekend in Mumbai following Bal Thackeray's death (an important market). The true test will now come in this week, as Hollywood big ticket releases 'Life of Pi' and 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2' will eat into JTJH's multiplex audience share.
BO performance of Son of Sardaar
All India collections: Rs 66.02 crore (up to Sunday)
Ajay Devgn need not be glum, since even though 'Son of Sardaar' has been overtaken by JTJH, he still has much to cheer about. Negative reviews and controversy before the release did nothing to stop folks from coming to the theatres to lap up Devgn-style entertainment (read our review of the movie here). SOS will continue strongly in the second week, as there will be no competition at the single screens for at least a fortnight until Aamir Khan's 'Talaash' releases.

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.
