Midweek: ‘Paa’ catches on like wild fire, picks up hugely, ‘Radio’ is non-starter!







































FilmCastPlussesMinussesVerdict

Paa
Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Vidya Balan, Paresh Rawal, Arundhati NaagPerformances by every member of its cast, especially Amitabh Bachchan as Auro, plus R. Balki's sensitive directionScript could've been tighter [the political track doesn't work]Had a slow Friday [approx. Rs. 2.15 cr.], although business picked up in the evening shows. Saturday witnessed a big jump in business at plexes [approx. Rs. 3.50 cr.]. Sunday showed a further jump [approx. Rs. 5.25 cr. to Rs. 5.50 cr.]. Such escalation in day-wise business is a rarity in today's times. Only goes to show that the film has been lapped up in a big way. Monday is expected to be better than Friday

De Dana Dan
Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Suniel Shetty, Paresh Rawal, Sameera Reddy, Neha Dhupia, Archana Puransingh, Aditi Gowitrikar, Asrani, Chunky Pandey, Johny Lever, Rajpal Yadav, Manoj Joshi, Tinnu Anand, Vikram Gokhale, Sharat Saxena, Shakti Kapoor, Supriya KarnikTerrific comic momentsLengthy second hour and a stretched climaxBetter at single screens. Average, due to its high costs

Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani
Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Darshan Jariwala, Smita Jaykar, Upen Patel, Govind Namdeo, Zakir Hussain, Navneet NishanRanbir - Katrina chemistry, Pritam's music, terrific comic moments. Plus, Rajkumar Santoshi's handling of the subject has come in for praise. Also, terrific promotion by producer Ramesh TauraniSecond hour could've been better, writing-wiseSuper Hit

Radio
Himesh Reshammiya, Shenaz Treasurywala, Sonal Sehgal, Paresh Rawal, Zakir Hussain, Rajesh KhattarHimesh's musicPoor writing and weak directionExtremely poor weekend

Kurbaan
Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Vivek Oberoi, Om Puri, Kirron Kher, Dia Mirza [sp. app.], Nauheed Cyrusi [sp. app.]Captivating script with power-packed performancesToo serious and slow-pacedFlop
