[an error occurred while processing this directive]Business in the international markets continues to go downhill. The two new releases, London Dreams and Aladin, have proved non-starters. Much was expected from London Dreams, primarily due to [i] Its star cast, [ii] The international setting and [iii] Vipul Shah's track record in Overseas. But the film has fared way below the expectations. Similarly, Aladin was also released extensively in the international markets, but has proved to be an unmitigated disaster...
