After Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Pathan’, Sunny Deol’s ‘Gadar 2’ has brought life to the Bollywood box office. The Amisha Patel starrer made a historic collection of Rs 55.40 crore during the Independence Day holiday. The film collected 34.50 crores at the box office on its sixth day in theaters. After that, the total collection of the film is Rs 263.48 crores. If this pace continues, it is obvious that ‘Gadar 2’ will soon cross the 300 crore mark. This Sunny Deol movie is succeeding in making new records every day because of 5 reasons.
Ghadar 2 is making records
Trade experts and the film industry expected Gadar 2 to be a hit at the box office. However, Sunny Deol’s film has exceeded all expectations and is now on its way to becoming the highest grossing Indian film of the year. Directed by Anil Sharma, Gadar 2 is a sequel to the 2001 blockbuster, in which Sunny played Tara Singh, a truck driver, while Ameesha Patel played Sakina. Anil’s son Utkarsh Sharma also reprises the role of his son Jeet in the film.
A fresh and powerful story made Gadar 2 strong
Anil Sharma’s Ghadar 2 is a fresh take on the 2001 film Ghadar Ek Prem Katha Hai. The story continues 22 years after the events of the first episode. Sakina and Tara were very popular among the audience, and their beautiful songs and acts are also remembered by people. What is refreshing is that Anil has made very few changes to the songs in the new film and they still sound evergreen. Amisha and Sunny’s chemistry reminded fans of what they had seen years ago. Almost the entire first half of the film repeats iconic scenes from Ghadar Ek Prem Katha. I moved from Gaddi Lake to the hand pump scene. Utkarsh Sharma is now grown up and goes to Pakistan for his father.
Ghadar 2 shows patriotic fervor
Considering the mood of the country at the moment, Ghadar 2 captures the patriotic sentiment very well. The film depicts the story of India and Pakistan. A glimpse of the partition that took place in 1971 can be seen in it. Simultaneously, dialogues like Bharat Mata Ki Jai and Hindustan Zindabad, Zinda Hai, Hai Aur Rahe, entertained everyone a lot. Also, at the end, when Sunny Deol called Quran and Bhagwat one, that too looked very powerful on the silver screen.
The timing of the release made Ghadar a blockbuster
The makers of Ghadar 2 had set the release date of Sunny Deol’s movie Ghadar 2 with full preparation. A five-day holiday around Independence Day gave the film mileage. Ghadar 2 has collected a total of 263.48 crores domestically and has crossed the 300 crores mark globally. After opening brilliantly with 40 crores on Friday, August 11, the film’s collection reached 51 crores on Sunday. After a slight drop on Monday (38.7 crores), Gadar 2 collected 55 crores on day five and 37 crores on day six.
Pathan’s single screen record was broken
With Gadar 2, single screen did well after a long time. From advance bookings to massive five-day collections, single screens in India’s heartland have contributed immensely to the film’s earnings. Not only in Punjab, Bihar, UP and Rajasthan but also in single screen theaters in states like Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh, the film has received tremendous response. A Live Mint report said that single screen cinemas “have also added shows till 1:00 am and 4:30 am to accommodate the audience”. Producer and film business expert Girish Johar said multiplexes in India’s tier two and tier three cities have also turned up in good numbers for Gadar 2.
Money-back entertainer Ghadar 2
Gadar 2 didn’t get very good reviews but the movie is getting lots of love from the audience at the box office. The story of Tara Singh and Sakina is entertaining them a lot. Apart from this, the dialogues added by Anil Sharma in the sequel are also amazing. One hears saying that he is Pakistan’s son-in-law, worship him and keep him happy..or else he will take entire Lahore as dowry.
