Finally, after a long time comes a complete family entertainer, Jugjugg Jeeyo, literally. Director Raj Mehta’s Jugjugg Jeeyo, is a fresh family drama that raises a very pertinent issue of marital ties and the vulnerability in relationships at different age groups. The very first trailer itself had set the expectations of the family audience and the outcome is now for everyone to see.
Dharma Productions’ Jugjugg Jeeyo is being lapped up by critics and audience alike. Watching Anil Kapoor on the screen is entertaining in itself, especially the middle-aged audience. His comic timing and expressions are amazing doubled up with a father-son bonding with Varun Dhawan made it joyride. Both of them bring the house down replete with clean comedic situations. And if the two were not enough, Maniesh Paul brings in the right dose of humour with his histrionics.
It is not for nothing that the audience is enjoying, so much so that the word of mouth publicity is very strong. Don’t believe it? The box office numbers are a clear proof with the first day collection of more than 9cr, which gradually increased to 12.5 and 15+cr on Saturday and Sunday respectively. However, it is a Monday that is a real test for a film and this entertainer that has the gorgeous Kiara Advani and Neetu Kapoor to complete the family, passed the Monday test too, collecting almost 5cr! Looking at a very strong week 1 and racing towards a 50-52cr week.
Jugjugg Jeeyo is proving successful in not only collections but in bringing the family audience back to the theatre and it is loved in India and overseas too. Making it one of the top (Bollywood) grossers with its worldwide acceptance.
All in all this entertainer that has got the families excited and brought them back to theatres has made Dharma Productions’ Jugjugg Jeeyo its first theatrical success post pandemic.
