This week will witness a much anticipated release, Varun Dhawan’s JUDWAA 2, sort of a remake of the super hit David Dhawan directed Salman Khan and Karisma Kapoor starrer, JUDWAA. And anyone and everyone who had some knowledge of box-office functioning is quick to predict the obvious- JUDWAA 2, reboot (as described by David himself), is destined to succeed venture. Reasons are multiple.
First of all it is a refurbished version of a very successful comedy, the songs of which are popular even today. Secondly it stars latest teenage heart throb, young superstar, Varun Dhawan, who is on a high after the blockbuster success of BADRINATH KI DULHANIA. Moreover its promos (the ones featuring Salman as well) are being loved by the audience and the songs 'rearranged from the original', ‘Oonchi Hai Building’ and ‘Chalti Hai Kya’, have been lapped up by the youth.
Therefore it came as no surprise when a section of the trade predicted a bumper initial for JUDWAA 2. The opening is expected to be excellent with the first day in the 14-15 crore range.
Just like BADRINATH KI DULHANIA, all hopes now rest on young shoulders of Varun Dhawan, to save the day for Bollywood (which is going through a dull phase), and thus set the tone for other films like CHEF, AKSAR 2, JULIE 2, SECRET SUPERSTAR, GOLMAAL AGAIN etc to follow, marking the start of the festivities.
