Jannat 2, as expected, has managed to bag a bumper opening for itself. The initial report coming in, stated that the average occupancy was somewhere in the region 70-80%. If the trend continues, the movie is all set to rank itself as one of the highest earners of 2012.
Turnout was a bit on the lower side for multiplexes as compared to single screens. This is expected to improve though; over the weekends.
Super star-cast, chart topping music and well marketed promotion, has enabled Jannat 2 to garner such a grand opening. The hype and positive word-of-mouth publicity; are also expected to assist the film over the next few weeks. The release of YRF banner movie Ishaqzaade next Friday is not bound to create any sort of obstacle for Jannat 2.
Bhatt Camp has released both movies of the Jannat series around the IPL time. By the look of things, it’s safe to say that both the movies will emerge as super-hits. The confidence shown by the Bhatt’s in both these movies, has worked; and Jannat 2 may even go on to gross more than its prequel. It’s safe to assume that Jannat 2 will emerge as one of the highest earners of this year.
The official figures are finally in. First day box office collection of Jannat 2 is 8.5 crores. The opening figures seemed to be pretty decent but it seems the movie fell flat after Day 1. Day 2 box office collections of Jannat 2 were a mere 7 crores. That’s a huge drop for a film on it’s very second day. IPL might have actually done this damage to the movie’s box office collections. Sunday was expected to be a big day for the Emraan Hashmi starrer. However, the first Sunday box office collection of Jannat 2 were a mere 9 crores. This was indeed way below expectations.
The first weekend domestic box office collection of Jannat 2 thus stands now at 24.5 crores. Jannat 2 also made a decent 2.5 crores at the overseas box office in its first weekend. With the absence of any other big starrer film on the Indian box office the movie is expected to do a decent business during the 1st week.
So the movie seems to have done a fair business at the Indian box office. The first week total for Jannat 2 at the domestic box office came up to 35.5 crores nett. Another 3 crores at the overseas box office makes the films total worldwide box office collections 38 crores.
However, with the release of highly anticipated Ishaqzaade and Dangerous Ishq this week the movie is not expected to last long at the Indian box office.
The movie did decently even in it’s 2nd week at the box office making a good 7 crores. The total domestic box office collections of Jannat 2 as of now stands at 42 crores and another 3 crores came from the overseas box office collections. Looks like the movie did stand up to the expectations of the makers and the masses together.
