Film trade expert Girish Wankhede writes an exclusive column for Filmibeat , analysing the films released last week. The dismal performance of Hindi films continued in this week as well. This was the most anticipated week after the COVID-19 lockdowns.

Still, both fell short of the expectations of moviegoers and the result was disappointing. While Laal Singh Chaddha succumbed to its old school routine storytelling of uninspiring characters and patchy outdated screenplay, it's too-stretched length took a toll.
