New Delhi: The John Abraham starrer Satyameva Jayate 2’s Box Office collection has dropped sharply on its subsequent day. After earning almost Rs 3.6 crore on its first day of the release, the film could just procure Rs 1.85 crore on Friday, according to boxofficeindia.com. The film was released in theaters on Thursday.
Trade analyst Girish Johar recently told indianexpress.com, “The first film did fantastic business, so we are really hoping that this one works well at the box office. I am expecting Rs 6 crore to Rs 7 crore at the box office on day 1. Let’s see how it pans out. Milap Zaveri has gone on record to say it is an ode to 80’s and 90’s cinema.”
The film sees John playing a triple role. Satyameva Jayate 2’s content is written by Zaveri. John’s film is currently competing with megastar Salman Khan starrer film Antim in the theaters.
A vigilante drama film, Satyameva Jayate 2 is supposed to be a ‘spiritual sequel’ of the 2018 film Satyameva Jayate. Likewise featuring Anup Soni, Harsh Chhaya, Gautami Kapoor, and others, the film marks the acting comeback of actor Divya Khosla Kumar.
The film has not satisfied the critics, and this might be another reason that the film is flopping in the cinema world. The Indian Express film pundit Shubhra Gupta gave the film a half star. She expressed, “Abraham strides through this thing with his standard mix of fixed-frown-and-swinging-fists. Only once or twice does he do the bare-bodied superhero who can take on all comers with a teeny dimpled nudge-wink. The rest is a string of tired stereotypes and bad story-telling, refreshing the dangerous idea of justice being doled out by men arrogating to themselves the power to judge, jury, executioner. You’d think India is still a nation fighting for its freedom, the way these ‘heroes’ go on thundering about ‘azaadi’. You’d think shoddy writing was a thing of the past. That was the 80s. This is 2021. What’s their excuse?”
