Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, which has been made with a big budget, has disappointed its makers. The Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol starrer got eclipsed by previous week's release Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and landed at the second place in the Indian collection chart in its opening week.
Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 opened to a very good response in North India, while it had a low start in other parts of the country. Due to the poor reviews and rating, the movie failed to show big jump on Saturday and Sunday. The movie collected Rs 22.50 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in its opening weekend. Its breakup is Rs 7.50 cr on Fri, Rs 6.50 cr on Sat and Rs 8.50 cr on Sun.
The business of Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 dropped considerably on the weekdays. It showed approximately 37% dip in its collection. On its weekdays, the movie, which is said to have been made at Rs 20 crores, has raked in another Rs 10 crores, taking its seven-day first week total to Rs 32 crore nett in the domestic market.
Considering its budget, Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 is running in profit. But its business is very low, when looked at the collection of its prequel, which had raked in Rs 28+ crores nett in the first weekend. The film has failed to break the record of Yamla Pagla Deewana. Trade pandits feel that its business will be completely slowed down by new releases in the second week.
