Gadar 2: A Relentless Box Office Powerhouse
Sunny Deol’s magnum opus, Gadar 2, maintains its resounding success at the box office. The sequel to the 2001 war drama continues its unyielding march to greatness. After a slight lull during the week, Gadar 2 experienced a significant surge in audience turnout on Saturday, contributing an astounding sum of Rs 13.75 crores to its coffers. This stupendous performance elevates the cumulative 16-day collection to a monumental Rs 439.95 crores. The directorial prowess of Anil Sharma has propelled Gadar 2 to a remarkable achievement, even surpassing the collection of KGF 2’s Hindi version (Rs 435 crore), securing its position as the third-highest-grossing Hindi film.
Gadar 2’s Unassailable Rise
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh, sharing the latest box office statistics on Twitter, exclaims, “CROSSES ‘KGF 2’, NEXT ‘BAAHUBALI 2’… Having outstripped the lifetime business of #Dangal, #Gadar2 has now overtaken #KGF2 #Hindi… Currently, #Gadar2 stands as the THIRD HIGHEST GROSSING #Hindi film in #India… Its dominance in mass sectors continues to rewrite #BoxOffice records… [Week 3] Friday: ₹ 7.10 cr, Saturday: ₹ 13.75 cr. Total: ₹ 439.95 cr. #Indian box office.”
Climbing the Ranks
The riveting collaboration between Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel, Gadar 2, finds itself trailing only Pathaan (netting Rs 543 crores) and Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion (netting Rs 511 crores) in the box office hierarchy. While the ascent to crossing the Rs 500 crore mark in the fourth week is well within reach for Gadar 2, surpassing its esteemed predecessors appears to be an arduous task. The impending release of Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan on September 7 looms as a potential obstacle, poised to test the movie’s staying power.
Gadar 2 vs Pathaan: A Director’s Perspective
Director Anil Sharma, in a recent interview, sheds light on his and Sunny Deol’s approach to the box office buzz. They aimed to etch a special place in the hearts of audiences through Gadar 2, a goal they have undeniably achieved. Reflecting on the possibility of Gadar 2 surpassing Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan, Anil Sharma conveys to India.com, “I don’t place my faith in numbers alone. Pathaan has achieved extraordinary success, as did KGF (Chapter 2), and now Gadar 2 follows suit. The trajectory ahead remains in the hands of the audience. Gadar 2 belongs to the public. Having already exceeded Rs 400 crore, breaching the Rs 500 crore mark in the upcoming week and even touching the Rs 1,000 crore milestone is conceivable. However, our focus extends beyond mere numbers; our goal is to carve a lasting place in people’s hearts. The movie’s popularity and the love it garners from the audience are paramount. The numbers reported today are a genuine reflection of its performance, devoid of any artifice.”
Gadar 2’s Remarkable Collection Journey
Returning to the movie’s collection journey, Gadar 2 amassed a remarkable Rs 284.63 crore and Rs 134.47 crore during the first and second weeks, respectively. Even afterward, it sustains its appeal with more than 40 percent occupancy in the Hindi market as the third weekend commences. The nocturnal screenings witness the highest attendance, followed by evenings, afternoons, and mornings.
The Phenomenal Release and Reception
Released alongside Akshay Kumar-starrer OMG 2 on August 11, Gadar 2 demonstrated its potency by grossing Rs 40 crore on its opening day, reaching its pinnacle on Independence Day with an impressive Rs 55 crore. The film boasts a talented ensemble cast including Utkarsh Sharma, Simrat Kaur, Manish Wadhwa, and Gaurav Chopra. As fans laud the film with unrestrained admiration, it also garners positive acclaim from critics.
In conclusion, Gadar 2’s ascent at the box office continues to astound, crossing milestones and records, and etching a place in the hearts of audiences that extends beyond mere numbers. With its unique narrative and exceptional performances, Gadar 2’s legacy appears destined to endure, further solidifying its status as a cinematic triumph.
