Ashish Hemrajani, CEO, BookMyShow says “For the first time since the 'Inception' of BookMyShow in August 2007, we have had a month where the highest grosser film has not been a Hindi film. In fact, July 2010 is one month where a bunch of small movies have done good business while the biggies have not performed as expected. In a nutshell, here are the top 10 movies of July 2010:

1. Inception
2. I Hate Luv Storys
3. Once Upon A Time in Mumbai
4. Khatta Meetha
5. Knight and Day
6. Tere Bin Laden
7. Salt
8. Maryada Ramanna (Telugu)
9. Lamhaa
10. Twilight Saga: Eclipse

“The third weekend occupancy for the evening and night shows are at 80-90% and are still holding strong during the week. Thanks to Christopher Nolan, Leonardo DiCaprio & Warner Bros we are confident that this film will be no less than a Bollywood Blockbuster!" Prakhar Joshi, Head Programming, PVR Cinemas

“The film has seen the lowest drop for a wide English film this year. The word of mouth on this film is unprecedented and a lot of audiences are going back to the cinemas for a second or third viewing. The film is having a dream run." says Denzil Dias, Deputy Managing Director (Theatrical), Warner Bros. Pictures India

INCEPTION released in India in four languages with 300 prints which include English (120 prints), Hindi (90 prints), Tamil (45 prints) and Telugu (45 print). This critically acclaimed film has got an over-whelming response from the audiences across the nation.
