Be it the city of Prague or the beauty of a Fijian island, the new films that released over the weekend failed to pull audiences into the theatres. Going by the performance of "Prague", "Super Model", "Warning" and "Maazii" so far, experts are doubtful about their survival.

"Opening of all the movies has been very poor. I don't know if they will be able to survive the week or not," trade analyst Vinod Mirani told IANS.

Anubhav Sinha's "Warning", which has been labelled as a survival film has reportedly collected Rs. 3 crore in three days. Executive producer Ishaan Gupta had mentioned that it's a medium budget film.

Rohit Khaitan's "Prague" was made on an approximate budget of Rs.6 to Rs.6.5 crore and he said that revenues have picked up, but he refused to share any data.

Directed and produced by Jaideep Chopra, thriller "Maazii" is said to be made on an approximate budget of Rs.7.5 to Rs.8 crore. This film, amongst the ones which released Sep 27, has been labelled a "disaster" by trade analyst Amod Mehra.

The film featured Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Ashok Banthia and Manish Chaudhary.

Even Navin Batra's "Super Model" that stars controversial Pakistani actress Veena Malik and her ex-boyfriend Ashmit Patel didn't create any waves at the box office.

"All the movies are flops. 'Warning' must have earned around Rs. two and a half crore and rest in just lakhs," trade analyst Komal Nahta told IANS.
