No Khushi this Friday at the BO

Friday, February 7, saw the release of four films: Khushi, Satta, Baaz and Freaky Chakra.

As expected, the World Cup worked to Bollywood's disadvantage.

Though the Fardeen Khan-Kareena Kapoor starrer Khushi opened to housefull collections, they have now dropped considerably. Satta's political theme had limited appeal. Baaz was a non-starter from the word go.

Note: Films are ranked on the basis of their performance at the box-office every week. Though a film may be declared a flop, it may have performed better than other films that week.
