Ayushmann Khurrana and Ananya Panday’s comedy-drama Dream Girl 2 finally hit theatres on August 25th. Speaking about the day 2 earnings of the movie, Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared his thoughts in a tweet. He highlighted that the film has gained momentum in metropolitan areas and also witnessed growth in Tier-2 cities. He anticipated that the movie is likely to collect around ₹41 crore rupees over the weekend, which would be considered an excellent achievement, especially considering the strong response to Gadar 2 which is still running in theatres. On its second day, Dream Girl 2 collected ₹14.02 crore rupees, accumulating a total of ₹24.71 crore rupees. Taran Adarsh expressed confidence that the movie will receive a significant boost on the occasion of the Raksha Bandhan holiday.
In his tweet, Taran Adarsh wrote, “#DreamGirl2 SHINES on Day 2… Gathers speed at metros, witnesses growth at Tier-2 centres… Eyes ₹ 41 cr [+/-] weekend, which is an EXCELLENT TOTAL, more so since #DG2 faces the fury of #Gadar2 at mass sectors… Fri 10.69 cr, Sat 14.02 cr. Total: ₹ 24.71 cr. #India biz. The #RakshaBandhan holiday [on Wed; 30 Aug] will give #DreamGirl2 the required push to put up a SOLID SCORE in *Week 1*.”

In his review, NDTV’s Saibal Chatterjee wrote, “Directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa, who helmed the 2019 precursor, Dream Girl 2 has the likes of Vijay Raaz and Seema Pahwa, actors who are usually totally reliable, but the heavy lifting is left entirely to [Ayushmann] Khurrana. He does what he can to salvage a stale storyline that is as hollow as a drum…It isn’t until a pre-climactic sequence, which allows Khurrana’s character to launch into a self-righteous tirade against everyone within earshot, that the actor comes into his own. The series of supposedly comic scenes that precede it is, however, a totally wasted tickle fight – it does not yield the expected laugh riot.”
In addition to Ayushmann Khurrana and Ananya Panday, Dream Girl 2 has a spectacular star cast featuring Paresh Rawal, Annu Kapoor, Vijay Raaz and Rajpal Yadav.
