Jolly LLB 2 Box Office Prediction

Note: Due to server issues, the prediction is being published late. But our final prediction of Rs 14.25 crore for ‘Jolly LLB 2’ was published last night and also posted on our official Twitter handle.

Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2 is the big release this week and it’s arguably the most-anticipated film featuring the superstar in a very long time. The reason for this is his phenomenal run in 20166 which included a success like Housefull 3 and super-hits like Airlift and Rustom.

The slide of Hrithik Roshan and the rise of Akshay Kumar has coincided, cementing Akshay’s spot as one of the Top 4 actors in the industry.

‘Jolly LLB 2’ has a lot of factors in its favour, here are some of them:

  • Promos: The first theatrical trailer of ‘Jolly LLB 2’ got a good response, while the second trailer which they put-out closer to release raised expectations further.
  • 2 open weeks: During times when several big films are releasing in the same week, getting two open weeks at the box office has now become a luxury. ‘Jolly LLB 2’ has two weeks all for itself, giving the film a chance to gross big if the content clicks.
  • Akshay Kumar: A lot has changed in the last couple of years for Akshay Kumar. The multiplex audience are back in theatres and since that’s where the big money is, his films are expected to become bigger grossers.
  • Sequel: The first film featuring Arshad Warsi did not go on to be a big hit at the box office. But it did well enough to cross the 32 crore mark, for a small film without much face-value. The sequel has been made on a small budget too, but it features a superstar which should help the film attract pan-India audience.

The downsides of Jolly LLB 2

  • Period of release: The last couple of months have been heavy. Dangal was watched and re-watched. Then came two big releases Raees and Kaabil. So unless ‘Jolly LLB 2’ carries positive word-of-mouth, the audience is unlikely to come out in big numbers.
  • Music: It isn’t important for music to be a hit for a film like ‘Jolly LLB 2’, but a couple of popular songs would’ve helped the film get that further push at smaller centres.

IndicineFBO: We expect ‘Jolly LLB 2’ to open at Rs 14.25 crore on Day 1 and grow further on the second and third day at the box office. If the opening is in the 15 crore range, the film is a success on the first day itself – unless the reports are extremely poor, which is unlikely.

IF VERY GOOD (positive word-of-mouth)

  • Day 1 – 15 cr
  • Day 2 – 17 cr
  • Day 3 – 19 cr
  • First Week – 80 cr
  • Final – 135 cr + (Super Hit)

IF AVERAGE (mixed response)

  • Day 1 – 14 cr
  • Day 2 – 15 cr
  • Day 3 – 16 cr
  • First Week – 67 cr
  • Final – 95 cr (Hit)

IF BAD (worst case scenario)

  • Day 1 – 14 cr
  • Day 2 – 14 cr
  • Day 3 – 15 cr
  • First Week – 58 cr
  • Lifetime – 65 cr (Flop)

    N I’m quite serious.

  • But @indicine why have you suddenly dropped your prediction from 15.8 to 15.3 to 14.2 cr? Any particular reason?

  • @indicine- I really appreciate the work that you do, but let me give a suggestion that will help you become more well rounded. I think every now and then you should do articles on things which have nothing to do with box office and numbers. For ex- hrithik’s performance in kaabil received unanimous praise from everyone, even cricketers. Regardless of the box office. I would love to a see a piece written on that and his evolution as an actor. Similarly there so many actors ( Manoj baajpayee in aligarh) and films (Phobia) which may not do great business but it does not mean that they are not important.They help our Industry grow nd evolve. Reducing everything to stardom, box office nd numbers is a little shallow in my humble opinion nd the reason for fan wars. I know you are more concerned with the business aspect but don’t forget that films and filmmaking is also an art form. PS – I am a die hard Hrithik fan, nd an aspiring actor

  • most of Akshays movies are low budget movies so even if they cross 60-80 crores are considered hit or super hit. I guarantee if Akshay comes out with big budget films then 95% of films will either be flop or average. So Akshayis in the list of top 4 superstars of low budget films.

  • Are just MINDBLOWING! They are the heart & soul of the film 🙌 I found 2nd half better than first. Overall it’s a MUST WATCH! My rating: 4*

  • Peoples are saying akki films budget 60 crore that’s why become hit . What about kaabil its budget around 60 but his films struggle to get hit status .
