The hits and misses of the week.
Rajinikanth's Hindi-dubbed film Kaala enjoyed a solo release last week.
Even though its release saw a lot of excitement, the film did not meet the media hype in the Hindi belt.
Rajinikanth's films, unfortunately, does not really draw in audiences, except South Indian fans, in these parts.
On the other hand, the female-centric Veere Di Wedding is a hit.
John Abraham's Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran is a semi hit.
