Box office: Poor opening for Force 2, Tum Bin 2

November 21, 2016 17:54 IST

The hits and misses of the week.

Last week's releases -- both sequels -- saw a similar fate at the box office.

Force 2 failed to impress with its convoluted plot. 

Tum Bin 2 was too lengthy for a film with new faces and the music were not up to the mark either.

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the weekly verdict.
