Bad times continue at the box office

December 13, 2010 16:39 IST

Two films released last week -- No Problem and Band Bajaa Baraat.

But it was problems all the way for the former -- No Problem has done poor buisness over the weekend and is a major loser.

BBB too had a very poor opening; even the marginal improvement it showed on Sunday was not enough to sustain the film.

Last week's Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey, Phas Gaya Re Obama and Rakht Charitra 2 are disastrous flops.

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

Note: Films are ranked according to their release dates. The thumbs ups and downs do not reflect rediff's views.
