Judwaa 2 is set to emerge a HIT film as collections show a good jump across most places in the country. The collections will be up and down in various circuits but it looks like the film can go to around 19 crore nett on day two and maybe even reach 20 crore nett. It is a holiday for Dusshera but that was factored in some places yesterday where it was a holiday so if a 20-25% jump comes it will be huge for the film. The two day total of the film will be 35 crore nett plus and that is a big number.
The film is on course to emerge the first HIT since Toilet Ek Prem Katha released six to seven weeks back and only the second HIT film this quarter although it will be Tuesday that will confirm this as then everything will be back to normal. But it will probably have a huge total by then and the job will be almost be done. The audience which has been starved of entertainment of late have seem to come for this film in a big way. The plus its the business is universal it is doing well across the board. Saturday will see Mumbai circuit showing huge gains as that circuit was a bit low due to the last day of Navratri on Friday.
Judwaa 2 has put up a big number worldwide with around 90 crore GROSS boxoffice which is fifth highest for the year. This is the best for a Varun Dhawan starrer outside Diwale beating Badrinath Ki Dulhania (76 crore) and ABCD 2 (72 crore). The overseas business will come in around the $2.5 million mark which is good for this type of film and there was no Pakistan release over the weekend which could have been one of the better markets. The film was best in Gulf where it hit $1 million and US / Canada was $600,000 plus. The main four markets of UK, US / Canada, Gulf and Australia contributed around $2 million. Below are the top opening weekends worldwide for 2017. (All collections for Hindi language only)
Looks like they have just achieved what they were looking for. This movie was made just to make money which is obvious for most of the movies made. I was surprised that they just remade the original movie in the name of a sequel. It's a shame that the movie is not only (almost) a copy of the original but even the dialogues are 70-80% same through out the movie.
Judwaa 2 will be challenging to become the biggest grosser of the year for the Hindi film industry. The film has held strongly on Tuesday which was going to be the first test as its the first working day. The collections on Tuesday look like they are heading towards the 7 crore nett range which is excellent. The collections on Friday were 16 crore nett so the Tuesday collections look less compared to that but Friday was boosted by holidays in some areas. On top the film is coming of a holiday period and still to be hitting 7 crore nett on a non holiday Tuesday just confirms that the audeince has accepted the film. The first week is likely to hit 95 crore nett which would make it the fourth best first week after Bahubali - The Conclusion, Tubelight and Raees.
The box office has been a downer most of the year but now it will be an interesting next two weeks as Judwaa 2 chases the figure of Raees (128.77 crore) and Toilet Ek Prem Katha which is just about to finish its run with a little over 132 crore nett. If we take out Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion then Toilet Ek Prem Katha is the biggest film of 2017 but its going to have competition from Judwaa 2 and by Diwali it could be that this Varun Dhawan starrer beats the Shahrukh Khan starrer Raees and the Akshay Kumar starrer Toilet Ek Prem Katha. The second Friday is now the next test for Judwaa 2.
Judwaa 2 Is A SUPER HIT Film - Excellent First Week
Friday 06 October 2017 10.30 IST
Box Office India Trade Network
Judwaa 2 is a SUPER HIT and has had an excellent first week of 95.25 crore nett apprx with chances to emerge the biggest hit of 2017 for the Hindi film industry. The film had very good start and then took full benefit of the holiday period and then crucially has held up strongly post the holiday period. The first week has emerged the third highest of the year after Tubelight and Raees if we dont include Bahubali - The Conclusion but that does not tell the complete story as it is higher than these two films at many stations. In Delhi / UP and Bihar, even the circuit figures are the highest of the year outside Bahubali - The Conclusion. In the all time list it is the 21st highest first week of all time and in the same range as Dilwale (2015).
The job for the film was done over the holiday period but it was important to hold well after the holidays if it was to really go on and put up a big number and that is what has happened. The film now look set to rack up good numbers till Diwali. The film has Chef as competition this week but this battle is Hindi cinema (Judwaa 2) versus foreign cinema disguised as a Hindi film (Chef) so in reality its not really competition as Hindi cinema is far superior for the Hindi film audience.
The second Friday number will give an idea of its lifetime business and although its a clear run it has to go past Toilet Ek Prem Katha in three weeks as then the Diwali films will come and Judwaa 2 will not add much after week three.
Judwaa 2 confirmed its SUPER HIT status on its second Friday with collections in the 3.75-4 crore nett range. The film has now grossed over 99 crore nett and will either emerge the biggest HIT of the Hindi film industry for 2017 or the second biggest HIT. This is not including Bahubali - The Conclusion.
The race is with Toilet Ek Prem Katha and at the moment after eight days the film is around 50-75 lakhs nett ahead and it remains to be seen what happens over the next 10 days or so. The collections of the film till date are as follows.
Week One - 95,25,00,000 apprx
Friday - 4,00,00,000 apprx
TOTAL - 99,25,00,000 apprx
The huge failure of Chef will help the cause of Judwaa 2. Chef only had a chance at those 50 odd high end multiplexes but even there Judwaa 2 is collecting more than double of Chef despite being on its eighth day compared to the first day of Chef. The drop from Thursday is around 35% which is good trending considering the Thursday saw strong collections. The film is in a neck to neck race with Toilet Ek Prem Katha to see which film emerges the biggest outright Hindi grosser of the year.
Judwaa 2 Becomes Varun Dhawan’s 4th 100 Crore Grosser, 9th Back To Back Hit
As we all know Varun Dhawan holds the position of being the only actor who has given 9 back to back hits since his debut.
By Koimoi.com Team -October 7, 2017
Judwaa 2 with the total collections of 102.33 crores in 8 days is now Varun Dhawan’s 4th film in the 100 crore club. The first 3 being Dilwale [148 crores], Badrinath Ki Dulhania [116.60 crores] & ABCD 2 [107 crores].
As we all know Varun Dhawan holds the position of being the only actor who has given 9 back to back hits since his debut. He now also has crossed Ranbir Kapoor in the Power Index list of KoiMoi.
With Judwaa 2 entering the 100 crore club he has gained 100 points to level up his score to 400 crossing Ranbir’s score of 300. He now holds the 7th position in the star ranking list next to 3 Khans, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn and Hrithik Roshan.
With the pace this lad is going, the time is not far too see him in top 5. He definitely is a winning horse in the long race.
“In a year when much-anticipated films are not doing well at the box office, actors like Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkummar Rao, Kriti, Bhumi are making differences. So far, Bhumi has acted in three films — Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan and all of them are hits,” Varun said.
Admitting that he is popular on social media, which he enjoys a lot, the Main Tera Hero actor said: “There is a little hypocrisy there. When I meet people at the public events or put out trailer or videos on social media, I get a response from thousands of people. Are they all going to the theatre? Does the love I get from social media gets translated at the box office?”
“Not all the time. But a real star is who gets that at the theatre and have a steady fan-follower for years, like Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan,” he added
Judwaa 2 continued with its good box run in the second weekend as it collected over 17 crore nett and took its ten day total to 112.50 crore nett. In the next day or two it will cross the business of Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Tubelight and have just Raees and Toilet Ek Prem Katha in front of it from 2017 outright Hindi releases. .
The second weekend of the film is a little less than Toilet Ek Prem Katha but the first week was a little higher so after ten days Toilet Ek Prem Katha has an edge of around 50 lakhs nett. It will be the third week collections that will decide if Judwaa 2 becomes the highest outright Hindi film grosser of 2017. The collections of Judwaa 2 till date are as follows.
Judwaa 2 is maintaining good pace on weekdays of its second week with collections of 2.50-2.75 crore nett on its second Monday. The film has now crossed the business of Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Tubelight to become the third highest grossing Hindi film of 2017 after Toilet Ek Prem Katha and Raees. This is excluding Bahubali - The Conclusion.
The job is done for Judwaa 2 but just remains to be seen if it can beat the figures of Toilet Ek Prem Katha and Raees. The second week for Judwaa 2 looks to be heading for 26.50 crore nett which will put its two week numbers at over 121 crore nett. So from here it is likely a 10 crore nett third week will enable it to cross Toilet - Ek Prem Katha. The plus for week three is no competition but on the other hand it is a very poor week for business especially that Mon - Thu period. The collections of Judwaa 2 till date are as follows.
Judwaa 2 had a good second week of 26.25 crore nett and took its total to over 121 crore nett. The film is a SUPER HIT and will either be the biggest outright Hindi Hit of the year or second to Toilet Ek Prem Katha. As far as the NETT business goes than Judwaa 2 stands third to Raees (128.77 crore) and Toilet Ek Prem Katha at 132.07 crore. It should cross the former while latter could be a photo finish.
The two week business of Toilet Ek Prem Katha was 122.19 crore nett and Judwaa 2 is apprx 1 crore nett less in two weeks. In the third week Toilet Ek Prem Katha grossed 7 crore nett and in its fourth week it did two crore nett and Judwaa 2 will have to cross the third plus fourth week of Toilet Ek Prem Katha in week three to stand a chance as not much will come post Diwali. The collections of Judwaa 2 till date are as follows.
Week One - 94,95,00,000
Week Two - 26,25,00,000 apprx
TOTAL - 1,21,20,00,000 apprx
The best circuit is Bihar which stands at 4.75 crore nett and will cross 5 crore nett which is the 11th highest of all time and well ahead of any other actor who debuted in the last ten years. Ranbir Kapoor with Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani managed 3.50 crore nett in 2013.
Judwaa 2 is looking at another good week before the Diwali releases as it collected in the 1.50-1.75 crore nett range on its third Friday. The total of the film is around 122.75 crore nett and its likely to cross the business of Raees in a few days time while its still hard to tell if it can beat Toilet Ek Prem Katha which is the highest Hindi grosser of the year. It could be that the film will have to do some business post Diwali to reach Toilet Ek Prem Katha.
Basically after Bahubali - The Conclusion the honors are going to be shared by Toilet Ek Prem Katha, Judwaa 2 and Raees as one of these films will be top in the various circuits across the country. Judwaa 2 could emerge top in 3-4 circuits even if its all India collections dont surpass Toilet Ek Prem Katha. The collections of Judwaa 2 till date are as follows.
Week One - 94,95,00,000 Week Two - 26,25,00,000 apprx Friday - 1,65,00,000 apprx TOTAL - 1,22,85,00,000 apprx
