Jolly LLB 2 1st Day Collection
Morning Shows Report:
In the morning, the average occupancy recorded by the film was in the range of 30 – 35%. The numbers are good considering the average of multiplexes across the nation. North Indian circuits also witnessed a good opening in the range of 45 to 50% including Delhi and East Punjab. It is of no surprise because Akshay Kumar has a huge fan following in North India.
The second reason for the good opening of Jolly LLB2 lies in the fact that there hasn’t been any North-friendly movie since Dangal. Moreover, the film has noted a decent opening in the circuits of Mumbai and Bangalore which went around 25%. There may be a little effect on the Jolly LLB 2 collection as the advance bookings opened late.
Thus, Jolly LLB2’s advance remained lower that Akshay’s last movie Ruston even when it had a big clash. Overall, the collections may come up to a decent level because it has been released on a higher number of screens. So, it is expected that the number of screens will compensate for the delayed opening of advance ticket booking.
The film started to rise just after the first day first shows. The pre-release buzz and hype surrounding the movie was good enough to attract a significant proportion of the movie watchers. Also, the promotion was done on a big scale. On the whole, the opening is a little below expectations probably due to delay in advance booking. Still, it has the power to emerge as the second best opener of 2017.

JollyLLB 2 opened on an average note on the single screens as the occupancy remained around 25%. As the trend says, the last few films of Akshay Kumar have been witnessing more audience from multiplexes as compared to single screens.
