Flops galore at the box office

May 17, 2010 16:49 IST

Last week's six releases -- Kushti, Do Dilon Ke Khel Mein, Admission Open, Bum Bum Bole, Vroom and Bal Hanuman 2 -- were all very poor. Most of them didn't get enough audience for a show and were discontinued.

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the box office verdict.
