Satyameva Jayate 2 has finally arrived in theatres all across the country. The film stars John Abraham in the lead and it completely rides on his shoulders. The reviews are out and as expected, they are not in the favour. But will they really affect the box office aspect of the film considering its high budget? Let’s see!
Negative reviews and negativity on social media
Ever since the trailer was dropped, it was clear that Satyameva Jayate 2 will see mostly negative reviews. And also social media is another tool that plays a big role in defining the final verdict of the film. On Twitter, there are tons of memes that are trolling this John Abraham starrer.
What is the budget of the film and how much does Satyameva Jayate 2 need to earn for a ‘hit’ status?
As we mentioned above, social media negativity always plays a hurdle for growth in any film’s collection. One positive side is that mass centres are showing a positive response for SJ2. However, as we all know, multiplex business plays a major role in deciding whether the film is a hit or not.
Even though Satyameva Jayate 2 is working in single screens, its considerable high budget of 60 crores (making cost and promotions) has put the film in a dicey position. In order to emerge as a clean success, the film will need to earn at least 75 crores from a theatrical run in India. To get a hit status, the business needs to hit the 120 crore mark.
As of now, considering the 50% occupancy rule in a major state like Maharashtra will surely dent overall box office numbers. Other than it, this John Abraham starrer is in a clash with Aayush Sharma and Salman Khan’s Antim. If Antim manages better reviews and a word of mouth, it will make a way much harder for SJ2.
The entire scenario will get clear once the numbers of the first weekend come in.
