Box Office: Dedh Ishqiya gets average opening, Yaariyan opens well

Last week's release Dedh Ishiqya has managed to impress the critics but has not been able to do as well at the box office.

On the other hand, the other release Yaariyan surprisingly saw a decent run. Despite the mixed reactions from the critics,  the film has had a very good opening weekend collection.

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