The flashy remake
of '90s hit, Judwaa, which stars Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee
Pannu has received a rather warm welcome at the box-office.
The film has cashed in Rs 15.55 crores on the first day of its release, thus ranking amongst the Top 5 openers of 2017.
Popular trade analyst, Taran Adarsh, took to Twitter and announced the figures. He shared the tweet with the caption, “#Judwaa2 pumps oxygen in the lungs of an ailing industry... Has a TERRIFIC Day 1... Fri ₹ 15.55 cr. India biz.”

In the next tweet, he mentioned that Judwaa 2, was one of the Top 5 openers for 2017.
Judwaa 2 has got a strong opening at the ticket windows but the David Dhawan directorial is getting a mixed response from critics.
Author and SpotboyE.com's reviewer, Khalid Mohamed, gave Judwaa 2 just 1.5 stars. “Varun Dhawan’s highenergetic, his smiles are a dentist’s delight, not to forget his gym-chiselled body display. But the rest is a brain-banger. Over then to the judwaa lookalike bhais, London ka squeaky clean Prem (Varun Dhawan) and Mumbai streets ka mast mastiwalla Raja (You Know Who). Alas, the screenplay’s determined to make both of them behave like dopes – in their quest to take on the cliched baddies -- rather than doppelgangers. Not suprisingly, then, the outcome’s a brain-banger,” wrote the reviewer.
But with the opening collection, it looks like that the film will be a sure shot hit among the masses. Also, this being a Dussehra weekend, the chances of the film picking up further are high.
Although Team Judwaa 2 must be dancing with joy with the film's first day figure, let's wait and watch how the rom-com fares through the long weekend.
