Here's looking at the hits and flops of the week.

Last week's release Fugly opened poorly at the box office, thanks to the lack of story and treatment. Co-produced by Akshay Kumar, the film saw a poor weekend even though it was heavily promoted.

The week's other releases -- Chal Bhaag, Machhli Jal Ki Rani Hai and Unforgettable -- were disasters.
