The first week of the new year saw as many as four movies releasing at the box office. Out of the four movies- Table no 21, 'Rajdhani Express', 'Dehradun Diaries', 'Meri Shaadi Karao'- only Table no 21 managed to get a decent opening. We take a look at how the movies fared at the BO.
The Rajeev Khandelwal and Tena Desae starrer 'Table No 21' surprised everyone by collecting around Rs 4 crore in its opening weekend. The small budget film with a relatively unknown cast is the only saving grace at the BO this week.
Tennis star Leander Paes' 'Rajdhani Express' could make only Rs 1 crore, 'Dehradun Diaries' made less than Rs 50 lakh in its first weekend, while Meri Shadi Karado vanished without a trace.
Trade analyst Amod Mehra states, "The general norm of the first week of a new year being bad continued. All the films were disappointing barring Table No 21, which was average. The publicity was not as exciting as it should have been. On the other hand Dabangg 2 is on its way out."

"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.
