It is not just in India but Varun Dhawan starrer Judwaa 2 is rocking the box office worldwide. Its earnings at the global box office too have left trade analysts astonished. Its global box office figure currently stands at a staggering Rs 197.73 crore and it is only a matter of time when it would cross the coveted Rs 200 crore mark. When it comes to its domestic performance at the box office, this David Dhawan directorial, which also stars Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez, has accumulated Rs 125.84 crore, which makes its earnings more than Salman Khan’s Tubelight which earned Rs 121.45 crore.
In Judwaa 2, Varun Dhawan has played a double role. It is the remake of the 1997 classic Salman Khan film Judwaa. In the original film, Karisma Kapoor and Rambha played the love interests. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the figures earlier in the day. “#Judwaa2 [Week 2] Fri 4.25 cr, Sat 5.75 cr, Sun 8.10 cr, Mon 2.91 cr, Tue 2.45 cr, Wed 2.25 cr, Thu 2.05 cr. Total: ₹ 125.84 cr. India biz,” he said.

In her review of the film, Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta had said, “Varun wades fully into both characters, and shows a nimble-footedness here and there. He is better at the broad, physical, crotch-lowering ‘gali ka gunda’, than the straight, subdued fella, and judging by the roars and claps of the mostly youthful crowd at the first-day, first-show, he knows it too. Fernandez and Pannu show up and do what they need to when called for: squeal and act surprised and swing to the beat; the latter making the most of her part. Pannu is the real surprise here, and a welcome one. But the material gets too thin and stretched around Judwaa 2’s flab. A character keeps saying: ‘main seedha point pe aata hoon’. You wish the film did too.”
