Box Office: Bewakoofiyaan does below average business

Sonam Kapoor's first appearance in a bikini could not save Bewakoofiyaan at the box office.

The film, which suffers from a distinct lack of chemistry between the lead pair (despite their liplock!) and poor music, has garnered below average business,

As for the Ramsay horror, Neighbours, it has left its makers screaming in shock.

Queen -- which released the week before last -- is performing strongly, a rare film that has collected more on its seventh day as compared to its opening day. As it continues to do well in its second week, it can be termed a hit.

Total Siyapaa and Gulaab Gang, on the other hand, are flops.

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