Kahaani 2 box office collections prediction: Kahaani 2 is already getting rave reviews for Vidya Balan and Arjun Rampal’s performances. With about 35% occupancy rate in theatres on its opening day, which is likely to increase in the evening shows, the film will manage to earn around Rs 7-8 crore on its opening day. Kahaani 2 has two things going for it – a lack of strong competition in theatres currently, particularly with the delayed release of Wajah Tum Ho, and a ready-made fan following formed back in 2012 by the original Kahaani film. This should allow the sequel to settle at the Rs 50 crore mark with ease (lifetime).
The Sujoy Ghosh film is set to release in multiplexes, so the effects of demonetization will be minimal. Kahaani 2’s major hurdle will be the reviews, which have criticized its diminishing suspense by the second half of the film. Comparisons to the original are inevitable and this might work against it as well. Kahaani 2 has had little buzz surrounding it right up till its release and whether this will help to create a sense of mystery around it or make audiences ignore it altogether remains to be seen – as SRK has . The film’s soundtrack is a forgettable one and the movie itself has only track merged with the narrative. Even so, Vidya Balan, as expected, has given a solid a performance and Arjun Rampal’s role has been touted to be his best so far. This alone will give fans a reason to watch film and allow the film to make it to roughly Rs 50 crore at the box office, according to Bollywood Hungama.
