Filmmaker David Dhawan’s latest Hindi offering Judwaa 2 has thoroughly cashed it’s opening weekend on domestic box office. Being much awaited romantic comedy of the year, Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu. starrer has been released this Friday with immense excitement of their fans. As expected the movie has received very favorable response from audience and remained strong throughout so far.
After the superhit Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Judwaa 2 is the second movie of Varun in this year and heading with more power than the first. Unfortunately it received mixed reviews from critics, but audience found it entertaining and also liked the acting of Varun in both the roles opposite to Jacqueline and Taapsee.
Mubarakan was the last family entertainer we saw and witnessed how it trended at the box office. Judwaa 2, coming in picture, with bigger star pull, more fodder for the family audience and Varun Dhawan – we can just guess where the movie will go. Remake of 1997’s Judwaa witnessed good occupancy on the opening day due to high initial buzz.

Then on the last of weekend i.e. Sunday, the movie showed more growth and garnered the impressive business of 22.60 crores, which has made its opening weekend domestic total as 59.25 crores. Monday (Gandhi Jayanti) for Judwaa 2 are destined to be big too, but how much is to be seen. Next week too we don’t have any major releases just Chef whose pre-release buzz in anyhow low.
Blade Runner 2049 is also releasing next week. This Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling fantasy drama has been getting some amazing reviews from overseas. It’ll not prove to be a roadblock in Judwaa 2‘s success but it’ll attract its own target audience
