The sequel to the blockbuster VIP released on Friday to mixed reviews but the film has got grand opening in all centers. The film directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth also stars Kajol, Amala Paul and Bigg Boss fame Raiza. Music for the film has been composed by Sean Roldan. The Dhanush magic seemed to have provided the movie a solid opening, despite the film reciving lukewarm reviews.
However, despite being a star vehicle VIP 2 has sadly failed to meet the expectations created by its prequel. The movie might have a BO fight with the week’s other release Taramani, which has now secured more shows after positive word of mouth. Notably, the movie had a grand release across the country and abroad. It released in 550 screens across Malaysia, the highest for any actor’s movie. It also surpassed Superstar Rajinikanth’s Kabali (who has a formidable fan base in Malaysia) which was released in 480 screens in 2016.
The awaited sequel Velaiilla Pattadhari 2 hit opened to a grand release in Tamil! As per Box office updates on Day 1, the film raked Rs 5.75 crores at the TN box office. Now as per early estimates shared by Sreedhar Pillai, the film has taken a good opening in TN over the weekended. The numbers are yet to be revealed but early estimates suggest, the film has fared well at the box office.
Apart from Dhanush, VIP 2 also stars Kajol, who is making a comeback to Kollywood after 20 years. The actor was last seen in the movie Minsara Kanavu. VIP also stars Amala Paul and Bigg Boss fame Raiza. The movie was directed by Soundharya Rajinikanth and produced by Dhanush and Kalaipuli S Thanu. The script and dialogues were also written by Dhanush. Unlike VIP, the sequel has music by Sean Roldan.
