YPD 2 fails to make a mark at the BO; even as YJHD reaches 104 crore

MUMBAI: Deol clan?s family enterprise, Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 (YDP 2), tried to cash in on the moderate success of the original Yamla Pagla Deewana; more than that, it tried to cash in on the people?s sentiments for Dharmendra and his vulnerable ways and his family bond. However, the makers did not share the sentiments of the people and a badly worked on comedy was the outcome where content was lacking and buffoonery was the norm. The film which opened to below average collections on Friday and dropped further on Saturday, ended its opening weekend with collections of Rs 17.5 crore.

Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani (YJHD) is on its way to becoming a major blockbuster and start making profits for its investors as of today. It has been a long time since a pure romantic film hit it off with the audience in such a quick time. The film brings the Kapoor era back and establishes Ranbir Kapoor as the new generation star with a huge following (those few who have reservations about the film have none against Kapoor). The film also propels writer director Ayan Mukerji into the top rung. The film crossed the psychological Rs 100 crore barrier on day seven, ending its first week with Rs 104 crore. Still going strong in its second weekend, the film has added about Rs 27 crore for its second weekend collection.

The multi-starrer Aurangzeb collected Rs 20 lakh in its third week to take its three week total to Rs 24.05 crore, the film has Arjun Kapoor in the lead after his debut film Ishaqzaadeplaying a double role. The film also stars Rishi Kapoor, Jackie Sharoff, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Sasha Aagha and Tanvi Azmi.

The run-away hit of the year Aashiqui 2 starring Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor managed to strike the right chord with the youth of the nation and having added Rs 1.25 crore in its sixth week is nearing the end of its dream run at the box office, the film?s six week total stands at Rs 77.90 crore.
