The new releases - Nakshatra, Daayen Ya Baayen and Maalik Ek - opened to dismal houses on Friday. The response was as low as 3% and 5% and is not likely to improve over the weekend. Daayen Ya Baayen and Maalik Ek had a limited release, while Nakshatra had a slightly extensive release as compared to the two films.

The pre-Diwali phase is considered the weakest period for film business and even holdover titles like Jhootha Hi Sahi and Rakta Charitra remained thanda on the first day of their second week.

All eyes on Diwali releases
With no major films opening last weekend, the business remained minimalist in key international markets. The industry is gearing up for the two major releases - Action Replayy and Golmaal 3 - and the business is expected to show an upward trend.

Weekend: October 29 - 31, 2010.
