This week’s release ‘Karle Pyaar Karle’, which was the launch pad for Shiv Darshan, has failed to create any magic at the box office.

According to early feelers, the film has opened to a miniscule 5 -15 per cent collections at some centres. The reviews have been disappointing too. Shiv is the son of filmmaker Suneel Darshan.

In other box office news, last weekend’s big releases ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ and ‘Yaariyan’ have not done as well as expected, even though the latter has a slight lead. The Madhuri Dixit action drama did below average business at the box office. ‘Yaariyan’, which starred newcomers was not as expensive to make so has recovered some of its money. However, the film was slammed by critics for its weak storyline.
