Dhanush’s VIP 2 (Velaiilla Pattadhari 2) has completed its first weekend on a good note and made a decent collection on Monday, 14 August. The movie is expected to do well on its fifth day (Tuesday) considering Independence Day holiday. The movie was released in a good number of screens on 11 February to a massive expectation. Being a sequel to the hit movie VIP, the industry and audience had expected the Dhanush’s film to set the box office on fire.
VIP 2 reportedly minted Rs 5.75 crore on the opening day and went on to do good business on the next two days. On Monday too, the movie has reportedly enjoyed a good occupancy rate to take its 4-day total tally above Rs 13.5 crore. It has to be noted that the film has collected over Rs 1.65 crore in Chennai alone.
Unfortunately, the Soundarya Rajinikanth-directorial fell short of expectations and ended up becoming an average entertainer. Nonetheless, the film has made good collection till now and the success of the Dhanush-starrer depends on how it will perform in the days to come. However, no big movies are releasing this week and that might work in favour of VIP 2.
This movie marks Kajol’s re-entry into Tamil cinema after a long hiatus. The movie sees an unusual chemistry between Dhanush and Kajol, however it seems to have worked its charm at the box office. VIP 2 is the story of a married man who faces trouble finding a stable job which earns him good money, until Kajol’s bossy and arrogant character is introduced on screen and the two are involved in one massive showdown all throughout the movie, until Raghuvaran (Dhanush) bests Vasundhara (Kajol).
