With theaters trying to lure back audiences, box office numbers have become the talk of the town. Both Ponniyin Selvan 2 and Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan have been in the news for various reasons. As the films have been running for some time now, let's take a look at their latest box office figures.
Despite being in theaters for over two weeks, Ponniyin Selvan 2 has continued to generate buzz and managed to earn over Rs 166 crore at the box office on day 16. The sequel to the Mani Ratnam film has been praised for its compelling storyline and is reportedly outperforming its predecessor. Early estimates suggest that the Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer saw a slight increase in earnings, with around Rs 2.42 crore collected on the latest day.
Despite its underwhelming box office performance, "Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan" has received mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike. While some have praised Salman Khan's performance and the film's action sequences, others have criticized the predictable plot and lack of originality.
The movie's director, Farhad Samji, has previously helmed successful comedies such as "Housefull 4" and "Golmaal Again." However, it seems that his foray into the action genre has not been as well-received.
Despite the disappointing numbers, Salman Khan remains one of the biggest box office draws in India. His films have consistently raked in hundreds of crores, with "Tiger Zinda Hai" and "Bharat" being some of his recent blockbusters.
The pandemic has undoubtedly affected the box office performance of many films, with theatres operating at reduced capacity and audiences hesitant to return to cinemas. However, with the increasing number of vaccinations and the easing of restrictions in some parts of the country, it remains to be seen if the box office numbers will pick up in the coming months.
Meanwhile, Pathaan and Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar continue to hold their positions as the highest grossing films of the year so far. The Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Pathaan has earned over Rs 300 crore, while Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, featuring Kangana Ranaut in the lead, has grossed over Rs 250 crore.
