Box Office: Poor opening for Ranbir Kapoor's Besharam

Last week's release Besharam opened well when it released on Wednesday, October 2, but its box office collections dropped almost immediately due to poor word of mouth. 

The Ranbir Kapoor-starrer was panned by critics and failed to draw in audiences.  

Meanwhile, recent releases like Warning, Maziii, Raqt: A Rishta, Prague and Supermodel got bumped out of theatres barely a week after their release, due to dismal collections.

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