  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

With the last Friday of April also being over, and no Hindi film scheduled to release on the next one, this year may well prove to be one of the worst in recent times. It is the time for the industry to get into the introspection mood as four months of 2009 will soon be over without a single clear cut hit film.
