Highly anticipated sequel to 2014’s big Tamil hit Velai Illa Pattadhaari popularly known as VIP, has been released this Friday at box office with good excitement of fans. Unfortunately superstar Dhanush and Kajol starrer VIP 2 got mixed reviews from critics as well as audience due to noneffective script.
Directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth, VIP 2 has been shot in Tamil & Telugu languages simultaneously and dubbed in Hindi as well. This Friday only Tamil version of the movie has been hit the screens and other two versions are scheduled to be released next Friday.
Due to high initial hype, it took good start at box office but got failed to create magic like it’s prequel over the weekend. Although this time makers wanted to attract Telugu and Hindi audience also, but the mixed reactions for Tamil version definitely gonna affect the performance of rest versions too.
On the opening day, VIP 2 recorded amazing occupancy across Tamil Nadu on over 300 screens and did the business of 5.75 crores. Following the usual trend, it dropped on the next day but witnessed heavy fall due to mixed reviews.
On Saturday Dhanush-Kajol starrer minted the amount of 3.50 crores with around 40% of drop than Friday. Then on Sunday being holiday, the movie showed slight growth in it’s business graph and minted the amount of 4 crores.
After the opening weekend, total collection of VIP 2 has become 13.25 crores at Tamil Nadu box office, which is good enough. It seems to remain steady in weekdays as there are holidays on Monday & Tuesday.
