Ishqiya trumps Rann at the box office

February 02, 2010 14:33 IST

Last week's releases -- Ishqiya and Rann -- had different outcomes at the box office. Ishqiya was steady and is likely to emerge a safe bet, especially since it has no opposition this week as well.

Rann, on the other hand, is a disaster at the box office.

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the box office verdict.
