Box Office: Main Tera Hero opens well

     Next

Last week saw two movie releases, Main Tera Hero and Jal.

Main Tera Hero has been liked by critics and audiences alike, but it would have fared even better had it not been for the T20 World Cup finals that were telecast over the weekend. Jal, however, was a flop.

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

Main Tera Hero

Cast: Varun Dhawan, Ileana D'Cruz, Nargis Fakhri.

What works: A time-pass and paisa vasool film, with lots of romance and comedy.
