Mumbai, July 9 (IANS) "Krrish", a sci-fi film by Rakesh and Hrithik Roshan, has surprised all and sundry with its unprecedented success at the box office. Moviegoers are thronging theatres to watch their favourite donning superhero garb.
Here are the top 10 Hindi films:
1. "Krrish" - Director: Rakesh Roshan. The film is going places and the stunts by Hrithik Roshan, probably the first superhero of Indian cinema, have become the talk of the town.
2. "Fanaa" - Director: Kunal Kohli. The movie survived because of its pre-release controversy, as it has nothing new to offer except the Aamir Khan-Kajol pairing.
3. "Phir Hera Pheri" - Director: Pankaj Vora. The film's success has surprised trade analysts. Viewers are immensely enjoying the antics of Paresh Rawal, Akshay Kumar and Suniel Shetty.
4. "Chup Chup Ke" - Director: Priyadarshan. The first half of the movie is hilarious with Paresh Rawal and Rajpal Yadav's chemistry being the highlight of the comic caper.
5. "Tom, Dick & Harry" - Director: Deepak Tijori. Another comedy, which didn't get a good opening, is running on the word of mouth publicity.
6. "Rang De Basanti" - Director: Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. The film's exceptional success at the box office has not only added another feather in Aamir Khan's cap but also given a new lease of life to Mehra's career.
7. "36 China Town" - Director: Abbas-Mustan. The Shahid Kapur-Kareena Kapoor magic is fading away and the movie has nose-dived.
8. "Humko Deewana Kar Gaye" - Director: Raj Kanwar. The film has nothing new to offer and moves at a sluggish pace besides lacking depth.
9. "Pyare Mohan" - Director: Indra Kumar. The director has failed to place the jokes in the right places, as a result of which the film falls flat at ticket windows.
10. "Gangster" - Director: Anurag Basu. Audiences aren't showing interest in the mobster's love story anymore.
