Atithi Tum Ghar Kab Jaoge has been promotedly perfectly. I am sure it will be a hit. Will try to find some time and watch it from my busy schedule of city hopping.
Edit - I am also having thoughts of seeing Thanks Maa. Lets see what I end up watching, if at all.

Thanks Maa - A Failed Attempt
This movie has won several awards but I really couldn't get into it. The children speak slang, the movie shows harsh realities, both of which can be good qualities in a movie but I found it a bit too loud.
The sad truth than so many children are abandoned in India at birth, the newspaper cuttings to reflect the fact were all excellent way to end the film with a strong message though. The main lead Shams Patel who won the national award for best artist for his performance was superb. One man clapped in the end and I can see why some people will really like the movie but it was one I really couldn't get into. 1/10.

Love, Sex aur Dhoka is Dibakar Banerjee's third movie and most experimental till date. However, it fails on various levels. The dialogues are not crisp enough, the story not crunchy enough.
The title of the film is sensational and creates an expectation of a fun yet engrossing film. A Gulaal mixed with a Dev.D. However, what you get is a casual story line which looks better because of the use of the smaller camera. A lot of people might be in awe of this movie and I can see why with an IMDB rating of 8.7 so far with 250 plus votes because it offers a bit of added masala.
This is no work of genius though. There is not enough love, sex or dhoka (betrayal) in the movie. By Indian standards, it is a good movie but if you judge it on an international level comparing it to the top world cinema in recent times like say Goodbye Solo, it falls way short. It is, in one word, quite ordinary. I must say though, I quite liked the ending. 3/10
LSD is a masterpiece. Don't know what you are trying to mean by "Indian" and "International" standards.
Indian and hollywood standard fare movies are quite ordinary. If you go by those norms, I would probably give it a 6. But going by World Cinema, the great movies which appear in the world - the contemporary world cinema, it is ordinary IMO. I thought the editing was excellent though.
Are English Movies considered Non-Hindi ?
Mumbai Meri Jaan
These are the excellent movies coming from India in recent times IMO.
Also, I have seen loads of movies from other Indian states, some of which are not even do not have a major film industry. I go to film festivals and watch regional movies on DD Lok Sabha channel.
Why do you think the movie is brilliant? I haven't had the time to read IMDB reviews, so don't know exactly what people find so amazing about the movie. The IMDB meanwhile has slipped from 8.7 after 270 or so votes to 8.2 after 300 votes. So the high imdb rating was mostly the exaggerated rating many movies get just after release. The rating will fall further - it looks that ways, not that it matters.
I don't see how it is any where near a masterpiece.
