Box Office: Guddu Rangeela does average business

July 06, 2015 17:44 IST

Despite good reviews, Guddu Rangeela fails to work at the box office.

Arshad Warsi and Amit Sadh may be a laugh riot but their onscreen chemistry in Guddu Rangeela did not warm up the audiences.

The week's other releases, Second Hand Husband and Bezubaan Ishq, fared even worse -- they did not find any takers at all.

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