No takers for Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey

Last updated on: December 06, 2010 15:26 IST

Of the three releases last week, Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey was the biggest one. However, it started off poorly from day one and remained poor over the weekend.

As for Phas Gaye Re Obama, though people liked the movie, there were fewer cinema outlets for it. Collections remained below par.

Meanwhile, Rakht Charitra 2 like its predecessor, failed to garner any response.

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