Jolly LLB 2 has sustained well at the box office and passed the crucial Monday test. The collections are a little below the 7 crore mark and closer to 6.5 crore. Mass-centres showed bigger drops on Monday, while multiplex business remained steady inspite of reduced ticket prices.
A better performance at single-screens, especially in the north and central parts of India, would’ve given the film a slightly bigger total – in the range of 7.5 crore, which would’ve been an excellent hold, giving the film a chance to go well beyond the 100 crore mark.
A single-screen theatre in the North, which collected 68,490 on Friday (698 admits on 5 shows), has collected 27,950 (291 admits on 5 shows). The occupancy at the theatre has dropped from nearly 45% on Friday to 19% on Monday. At multiplexes the hold was better, with most centres showing collection (not occupancy) drops in the range of 40-45%.
Jolly LLB 2 will get a small boost from Valentine’s Day today. It isn’t a holiday and neither has the love angle been extensively promoted. In 2014, a rejected film like ‘Roy’ took advantage of Valentine’s Day and in 2016, ‘Fitoor’ was outright rejected but the business of ‘Sanam Re’ did show some jump. The last film to really take advantage of the period was ‘Gunday’ which released on Valentine’s Day in 2014 and took a excellent opening.
It remains to be seen if Jolly LLB 2 can better its Monday collections or sustain at the same level on Tuesday.
The day-wise collections of Jolly LLB 2 is as follows:
- Friday – 12.65 crore
- Saturday – 16.50 crore
- Sunday – 19.25 crore (approx)
- Monday – 7 crore (approx)
- Total in 4 days – 55.4 crore
