The box office opening collection of Satyameva Jayate 2 was so low that it left the entire trade shocked. The fact that the first Satyameva Jayate has collected a whopping 16 crore more three years ago, regardless if it had released on national holiday, since, it, too, faced a clash, shows how much below even the most moderate of trade and industry expectations tnhe sequel has fallen. The John Abraham and Divya Khosla Kumar starrer, in which the former plays a triple role, was all but a non-starter in multiplexes, and despite mass pockets in B and C centres faring better, the footfalls (tickets sold) were hardly enough to make up for for the no-show at A-grade territories.
The Milap Zaveri directorial simply had to register miraculous jumps over Friday, Saturday and Sunday, which, not surprisingly, it has abjectly failed to. Satyameva Jayate 2 came crashing down on its second day, Friday, 26th November, all but sealing its fate at the box office. And if there was some over-optimistic folks still holding on to hope, then the complete lack of growth on day 3 has put the writing flat on the wall in no uncertain terms for the John Abraham and Divya Khosla Kumar starrer.
Check out Satyameva Jayate 2's day-wise, box-office collection below:
Day 1 (Thursday): Rs. 3.60 crore nett
Day 2 (Friday): Rs. 2.10 crore nett
Day 2 (Saturday): Rs. 2.20 crore nett
Total (3 days): Rs. 7.90 crore nett
The movie has been out-an-out rejected by even masala movie lovers and John Abraham fans, the terrible reviews no doubt playing their part, but not without justification as the word-of-mouth from whoever has seen it is also extremely negative.
