Piku, on the other hand, is a big hit.

Ranbir Kapoor's Bombay Velvet, which released last week, has been panned by critics and has failed to draw in the audiences.

Meanwhile, his former girlfriend Deepika Padukone's film Piku is doing roaring business at the box office.

Is it history, of sorts, repeating itself? (RK's Saawariya bombed at the box office when it released along with Deepika's superhit film Om Shanti Om.)

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