Few takers for We Are Family

September 06, 2010 17:59 IST

The week's two releases -- We Are Family and The Film Emotional Atyachar -- didn't set the box office collections ringing. While We Are Family got a poor response, The Film Emotional Atyachar on the other hand didn't even open in some theatres.

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

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