Mumbai, Aug 6 (): Pooja Bhatt’s much-expected erotic thriller Jism 2 has collected around Rs 20 crores at the box office in its opening weekend. The film stars Canadian porn star Sunny Leone, Randeep Hooda and Arunoday Singh. The collection on its first day was good, but there was a sudden drop on the second day collections, due to negative reviews and bad word of mouth.
The collection on the first weekend is as below:-
August 2, Preview, Thursday 1.00 cr
August 3, Friday 7.75 cr
August 4, Saturday 5.50 cr
August 5, Sunday 6.00 cr
Total Domestic Collections 20.25 cr net
The collection on the opening day of “Jism 2” was good as predicted, but the film had sudden fallen flat on Saturday due to the bad content and negative word of mouth publicity. On Sunday, the film did comparatively better than Saturday but still it was lower than Friday.
Director Pooja Bhatt predicted that her movie, which marks the entry of the porn star Sunny Leone into Bollywood, will have bigger collection than Jannat 2 (Rs 24.03 crore) and Murder 2 (Rs 22.7 crore), but her prediction did not turn true.
In the overseas market too, the collection was not up to what was expected. It failed to rake in even Rs 50 lakh collectively from its UK, USA and Australia centres.
Trade analysts say the film has a good collection of 20 crore base after a good Sunday, which is huge for the very low cost movie. This also shows that right costing, smart marketing, brand quotient with some features of curiosity added to a product can help a film enter a safety zone sooner than later.
In the film, Pooja Bhatt, the director of the movie has done a very good job as the director. The movie looks good and doesn’t disappoint those who’ve come to watch Sunny.
Vicky Goswami, Arko Pravo Mukherjee and Mithun Sharmav’s music is excellent. Maula and Yeh Jism songs are wonderful. Editing by Devendra Murdeshwar is alright. Nigam Bomzan’s cinematography gives a visual treat to the audience.
