Brothers get a beating at the BO!

This Friday saw an onslaught of over-protective brothers.

Sunny Deol and Suniel Shetty did the bade bhaiya bit for choreographer Ahmed Khan's directorial debut, Lakeer.

Mahesh Manjrekar played a possessive brother to Bhoomika Chawla in the Abhishek Bachchan-starrer Run.

But, in the end, it wasn't Brother's Day after all. Both films opened to a poor response at the box office.
