BO loves Ajay, Suniel

Action seems to be a safe bet in Bollywood. Harry Baweja's Qayamat may not have won critical acclaim, but the film opened rather well at the BO. Ajay Devgan and Suniel Shetty's brawn still has plenty of takers among the audience.

As for the other release of the week, Kahan Ho Tum, the less said the better.

Note: Films are ranked on the basis of their performance at the box office every week. Though a film may be declared a flop, it may have performed better than the other films that week.
