January is perhaps the coldest month of the year for most parts of the world with the low temperatures making us shiver. But the weather might not be the only reason for chills. The first month of 2013 saw the Box Office being ruled by three much-awaited thrillers.

The Box Office for the year 2013 opened with the action thriller Table No. 21, released on January 4. This Rajeev Khandelwal-Tena Desae-Paresh Rawal starrer deals with the issue of ragging and how extensive its damage can be. It has a task-based game show as the background of the plot. The movie got mixed reviews by the critics and a slow start at the box office but as weeks passed, it managed a decent collection.


Released on January 18, Inkaar(2013) is a crime thriller which depicts sexual harassment in a corporate set-up. Starring Arjun Rampal and Chitrangada Singh in the lead roles, the movie met with mixed reviews but its direction by Sudhir Mishra was praised. It failed to make an impression at the box office though it was at number one during the week of its release. However, the film has managed to appeal to a part of the audience, even if the number is small.


Sequel to the hit 2008 thriller Race, Race 2 is the first big release of 2013. A multi-starrer with numerous popular faces to boast of, the main plot of the movie revolves around the murder of Sonia (Bipasha Basu), the female lead from the prequel, and how it leads to every other character being caught in a web of lies, deceit and betrayal with the moral being no one can be trusted. The critics gave it mixed reviews but it managed to receive a positive response at the box office.

With almost every week having a new thriller at the silver screen, it seems like fans of other genres haven't had much to look forward to in cinemas this past month. But for those enjoying some suspense and action, there are so many to choose from. Which one was your favorite?

Table No. 21 was brilliant. I haven't seen Inkaar yet. Race 2 was a disappointment compared to the first one.
