BO: Ragini MMS fares better than other releases

May 17, 2011 11:25 IST

There were five releases last Friday -- Ragini MMS, Shagird, Stanley Ka Dabba, Love U... Mr Kalakaar and Banga, the last one released in just one theatre in Mumbai.

All the films fared poorly. Ragini MMS managed to do better than the rest.

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the box office verdict for the week.
