The new releases - Nakshatra, Daayen Ya Baayen and Maalik Ek - opened to dismal houses on Friday. The response was as low as 3% and 5% and is not likely to improve over the weekend. Daayen Ya Baayen and Maalik Ek had a limited release, while Nakshatra had a slightly extensive release as compared to the two films.
