Box Office: Five movie releases, all FLOPS

     Next

Next

Last week saw five movie releases -- Mickey Virus, Ishq Actually, Sooper Se Ooper, Delhi Gang and Wake Up India.

Mickey Virus found some favour, thanks to its good marketing. The film managed some decent collections in its first three days but that wasn't enough to save the film. The other releases did not get good openings.

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

Cast: Manish Paul, Elli Avram, Varun Badola

Director: Saurabh Verma

What works: Good suspence in the second half

What doesn't: The first half drags
