Box Office: Poor show for Ghazi Attack, Irada, Running Shaadi

Last updated on: February 20, 2017 16:15 IST

The hits and misses of the week.

Jolly LLB 2 saw a weak opening but improved over its second weekend. It also benefited on February 14, Valentine's Day. With poor opposition in the next week, the film will move into plus side.

The Ghazi Attack has been appreciated but that does not translate at the box office. Such films need reasonable admission rates as well as tax exemption.

The other releases -- Irada and Running Shaadi -- were very poor.

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the weekly verdict.
