No takers for RGV's Agyaat

Last updated on: August 11, 2009 16:01 IST

Ram Gopal Varma's latest thriller Agyaat failed to draw in the crowds, despite a skimpily clad Priyanka Kothari. The other two films released over the weekend -- Teree Sang and Chal Chalein-- were duds as well.

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the box office report.

Note: Films are ranked according to their release dates. The thumbs ups and downs reflect rediff's views.
