Box Office: Mirzya is a disaster

Last updated on: October 10, 2016 18:29 IST

The hits and misses of the week.

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Mirzya is poor on all counts, as the film meets with rejection from the very first day. 

Tutak Tutak Tutiya is a poor attempt at making a comic horror film. Plus, one doesn't want to see Sonu Sood dance in a film featuring Prabhu Deva!

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