Corporate fails to do a Page 3

While Krrish continues to make big bucks at the box office, last week's release, Corporate, failed to make an impact.

Though the film garnered positive reviews, the audiences gave Corporate the cold shoulder. But then again, Madhur Bhandarkar's new film could be a slow starter, and go on to become a hit like his previous film, Page 3.
