Producers and mutliplexes are still at loggerheads so no Bollywood release this Friday as well. What the audience is left with is the Hindi version of Kamal Haasan's Dasavatharam and an animation from Hollywood.
Dashavatar is the Hindi version of Kamal Haasan's Tamil magnum opus Dasavatharam. This film by K S Ravikumar - made with a whopping budget of Rs 60 crore - has Haasan portraying 10 different roles including that of former American president George W Bush.
Also starring Asin in a double role and Mallika Sherawat, the film revolves around a research scientist and an ex-CIA officer who are after a biological weapon which could cause mass destruction.
And now for the Hollywood spread. First up is the animated film Monsters vs Aliens. This DreamWorks animation release is about the adventures of a young California girl Susan Murphy who gets hit by a meteorite and turns into a monster. She then meets other monsters like her and together they end up saving the world from alien invasion.
The film's lead characters have been voiced by Resee Witherspoon, Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd.
Chowrasta - Crossroad Of Love, like its name suggests is about four characters at crossroads in their lives. Nandana is a fading star from Bollywood with a twelve year old son, Rita and Sunny are a couple who have eloped to get married, Jimmy is a tea-planter from Darjeeling and Kenny is a terrorist on the run. This film, in English, features Atul Kulkarni, Victor Banerjee and Rupa Ganguly.
