Dharma Productions’ big scale release, Student of the year 2, has been experiencing a tough time on the Box office. The film which has Ananya Panday, Tiger Shroff, Aditya Seal and Tara Sutaria in the lead roles, added Rs 5.02 crore more to its kitty. While the drop on Monday the film had only earned Rs 5.52 crore. what is even more disappointing is the fact that it has not yet touched the Rs 50 crore-mark after a five-day run. The film has reached to a total running collection of Rs 49.37 crore.
Taran Adarsh who is a movie critic and trade analyst in his Wednesday tweet summed up the business done by the film. He wrote, “StudentOfTheYear2 shows ordinary trending… Didn’t decline much on Tue [vis-à-vis Mon], but what’s surprising is that it hasn’t crossed ₹ 50 cr yet, even after 5 days… Fri 12.06 cr, Sat 14.02 cr, Sun 12.75 cr, Mon 5.52 cr, Tue 5.02 cr. Total: ₹ 49.37 cr. India biz. #SOTY2”

Director Punit Malhotra, who has directed films like I Hate Luv Storys (2010) and Gori Tere Pyaar Mein (2013) has directed this one. The film is the second installment of the Student of the year series. The first one was directed by Karan Johar and it has marked huge the launch of Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, and Sidharth Malhotra into the industry. The film made Rs 70 crore of lifetime collection and was a big box-office hit. Student of the year 2 has however got a mixed response from the movie critics, there are negative reviews from film critics across the country. But with the release of ‘Dede Pyaar De’ with Ajay Devgn in the lead on Friday, it will be much more difficult for the film to reach the higher benchmarks like 100crs and more. It was the talk of the town before its release and a lot of memes on the internet were shared from the film. The internet, on the other hand, had a lot to say about the film. And we think people are not happy with the film.
