Shabri fares poorly at box office

August 29, 2011 15:16 IST

Last week's four releases -- Shabri, Chitkabrey, Yeh Dooriyan and Stand By -- have fared poorly.

In fact, all the films that released after the blockbuster Singham (which hit the screen on July 22) have been box office duds.

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