First Day First Show: Force 2 Gets A Thumbs Up From The Public But Demonetization Threatens Box-Office Collection gives an on-the-ground report of the performance of this week's hugely hyped release, John Abraham and Sonakshi Sinha starrer Force 2

The sequel to John Abraham's 2011 hit Force is finally out and this time Sonakshi Sinha and Tahir Raj Bhasin have joined the action-thriller's star cast. And this film too seems to have fallen prey to the cash crunch being faced by the country, thanks to the recent demonetization move as the numbers at the theatres were disappointing.

Even though John Abraham himself was shilling online tickets as a move to counter the cash crunch, the lines at the ticket counter were thin.

Last week it was Rock On 2 which was shown the door by the audience. Force 2 also seems to have been affected as the morning shows had only 15% occupancy, which was still way better than Rock On 2. (Tum Bin 2 Shows Cancelled Due To Lack Of Audience; Force 2 Gets 15% Occupancy Only!, Nov 18)

Talking about the film, audiences who came out of the theatres seem to have loved the film. John as an action star is making his presence felt in a big way. People also appreciated Tahir's negative role, however, Sonakshi was said to be still in the Akira hangover.

Force 2, brings back ACP Yashvardhan who teams up with RAW Agent KK to bring down a terrorist. The sequel directed by Abhinay Deo promises to pack in as much action as possible in this much awaited action film.

Will the numbers increase during the weekend? Let's wait and watch.
