London Dreams outsell Aladin

November 02, 2009 18:34 IST

Of the two films releases last week, London Dreams fared better that Aladin.

London Dreams opened to a mixed response and has done reasonably well over the weekend. But there was no saving Aladin, which proved to be a disaster. Friday shows even had to be cancelled due to lack of audience.

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