Jolly LLB 2 is set to emerge the first hit of 2017 has it got a big boost on Valentines Day get growth of around 30%. The collections will be in the 8.50-8.75 crore nett range and this will take the total to 62.50 crore nett. This boost in box office collections gives the film breathing space for the film as the week is going to 72 crore nett and now the eighth day can afford to drop a bit. The film will be a HIT unless the second Friday goes down badly.
The film was strong in Delhi NCR and East Punjab from day one and Valentines Day has acted like a national holiday in these parts as well as other metros. The day is getting bigger and bigger every year for box office collections and is now closer to a national holiday than most of the other non national holidays.
The jump was not there in smaller centres but overall most circuits managed gains ranging from 5-50% depending on the circuits. Most of the cities in circuits like Rajasthan showed the normal trend but the big cities like Jaipur and Udaipur which have key multiplexes grew well and ensured the circuit came out with a higher number than the previous day.
There will be a drop tomorrow but a 3 crore nett boost in collections on Tuesday does put the film in a good position and more than covers any weekdays falls that will come over the next two days.
