Synopsis

There is something special in you. Don't ignore it. Don't try to change yourself to fit into this world. Please... give yourself a chance. She reminds him of who he is. He is the small town boy who has grown up in the world of stories. He belongs to that world. He is not suited to the corporate rat-race. The journey he goes through to reach himself is the stage for Tamasha. It's a personal journey - passionate and quirky - that dismantles his life, so that he can become how she sees him... the exuberant story-teller. Exotic island, youthful abandon, far...far away, Ved and Tara - a story begins. Ved has grown up amongst stories. As a kid in Shimla, he would collect money; even steal money so that the old storyteller would tell him stories. Ramayan, Helen Of Troy, Laila Majnu, Heer Ranjha, Aladin, Romeo Juliet... The storyteller would also say that all stories are the same. Ved wants his story with Tara to be different. So, they decide not to tell each other who they are and to only lie about themselves. And, after returning from the island, never to meet each other again. But they do meet again. The question is whether they will be able to shape their story in the way they want. Will the muse be able to make an artist of a common man, will Ved be able to break the shackles of ordinary existence, escape the corporate rat-race and become the way Tara sees him - the exuberant story-teller?

Theater Averages: Star Wars Set Another Records with $59,982

December 22nd, 2015

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars: The Force Awakens led the way on the theater average chart and broke the record for highest theater average for a wide release. Its average was $59,982, which is the fifth best opening theater average this year. This is just ahead of Ex Machina and just behind Carol. The Big Short fell 46% to $47,286. A 46% drop-off is bad news for a limited release most of the time, but The Force Awakens hurt all of the holdovers and I'm still bullish on its box office chances for its Wednesday expansion. Carol remained in the $10,000 for the fifth week in a row, this time earning an average of $14,446 in 16 theaters. Mojin: The Lost Legend opened with an average of $12,726 in 22 theaters, while Son of Saul was right behind with an average of $12,643. More...

Per Theater Chart: Carol's Second Verse is the Same as the First

December 1st, 2015

Carol

Carol remained in first place on the per theater chart with an average of $49,443 in four theaters. This is 22% lower than the film's opening weekend average, which isn't bad for a limited release. The Danish Girl opened in a close second place with $46,830, also in four theaters. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 earned first place on the overall chart and third place on the per theater chart with an average of $12,456. Janis: Little Girl Blue earned an average of $10,931 in two theaters, which is great for a documentary. The second wide release in the $10,000 club was The Good Dinosaur with an average of $10,444.

Limited and VOD Releases: Dressing Up for the Holidays

November 27th, 2015

The Danish Girl

Thanksgiving Weekend is not a good time to release a limited release. There are too many other distractions for moviegoers to deal with. This year is no different. If we limited the films to only those with ten reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, there would only be two films on this week's list. One of them is The Danish Girl, which was earning some Awards Season buzz. Its reviews are good, but not Awards Season good. More...
