Box Office: Ragini MMS 2 opens well

     Next

Next

Last week saw four movie releases -- Ragini MMS 2, Gang Of Ghosts, Ankhon Dekhi and Lakshmi.

Sunny Leone-starrer Ragini MMS 2 saw a good opening at the box office and may recover costs.

Although Ankhon Dekhi and Lakshmi got some good reviews, they did not fare well at the box office. 

Gang Of Ghosts found very few takers as well.

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