Box Office: Ghayal Once Again gets poor response

February 08, 2016 18:01 IST

The hits and misses of the week.

Sunny Deol's Ghayal Once Again failed to live up to the 1990 original.

The other release of the week -- Sanam Teri Kasam -- paid a heavy price for being an old fashioned, cliched film. 

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the latest box office verdict.
