Rani Mukerji’s Mardaani 2, a sequel of her 2014 hit film Mardaani, experienced growth at the box office by 75-80 percent on the second day of its release, as per a report by Box Office India. The action thriller, which also stars Vishal Jethwa, witnessed a slow opening on Friday, 13th December, due to tough competition from Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart-starrer Jumanji The Next Level. However, it picked up on Saturday, collecting approximately INR 6.5 crore, which brought its two-day earnings to INR 10.3 crore, according to the report.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh had earlier reported on Twitter, “#Mardaani2 witnesses stronger occupancy post 3 pm shows, after a lukewarm takeoff in morning... Multiplexes are dominating... Riding on super-strong word of mouth + tremendous critical acclaim, the footfalls should multiply on Day 2 and 3... Fri ₹ 3.80 cr. #India biz.”
In Mardaani 2, Rani plays the role of Superintendent of Police, Shivani Shivaji Roy, who is trying to track down a serial rapist. The film, directed by Gopi Puthran, has received several good reviews and Rani has received appreciation for her strong performance. Monika Rawal of Hindustan Times, calling Mardaani 2 a 'soul-stirring and‘well-timed thriller’, wrote, “Rani Mukerji looks convincing and impresses with her controlled performance from the word go. The expressions of anger and helplessness on her face resonate with you. She has some hard-hitting dialogues and manages to strike a fine balance between her duty and emotions, never going overboard.” Lekha Menon, in her review for Masala, gave the film 3 stars and wrote, “Mardaani 2 is an important statement on horrific violence against women and in an era where sexual assaults have become increasingly commonplace, a fictional Shivani Shivaji Roy gives an outlet for our collective anger. Go watch it.”
