Jolly LLB 2 starring Akshay Kumar and Huma Qureishi released in cinemas last week on Friday 10th February. The movie is the 2nd installment of Jolly LLB which starred Arshad Warsi and become a sleeper hit.
The movie has received mixed reviews from critics over the past week after its release. While Saurabh Shukla’s role peppered with punchlines has garnered a lot of praise, it seems that the film-makers were unable to utilize Akshay Kumar’s comic timing in the best possible way.
The role of a high-profile celebrity lawyer, which was showcased by Boman Irani in Jolly LLB, has been played by Annu Kapoor in this sequel.
While the movie showed collections of 50.46 crores over the weekend, figures have seen a massive dip since the week began. The Day 4, 5 and 6 collections of Jolly LLB 2 add up to just 22.22 crores which is a sharp drop of almost 56%.
Film critics have pointed out that the movie uses unnecessary song-and-dance routines unlike Jolly LLB 1 and also that it stretches on too long. This could be a possible reason for a dip in collection numbers and audience appeal after Day 3.
Going by trade figures, the movie’s cumulative collection at the box office stands at 81.85 crores as of Day 8. Analysts are saying that the Akshay Kumar-starrer is going to need a miracle if it intends to hit the 100-crore mark.
Here is the complete day by day box-office collection of Jolly LLB 2:
|Day||Date||Collection in Cr|
|Day 1||(10th Feb, Friday)||Rs 13.20 crore|
|Day 2||(11th Feb, Saturday)||Rs 17.31 crore|
