Manisha's day

Three of the four releases of the week, Parwana, Chupke Se and Joggers' Park, flopped.

Though the film flopped, Ajay Devgan won acclaim for his performance in Parwana, which had been in the making for four years.

Manisha Koirala's Market exceeded expectations and managed a decent opening.

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.
