Considerably one of the most anticipated movie of this year Rock On 2 did not do well at the box office as compared to its prequel 2009 blockbuster Rock On. The movie collection disappointed the trade pundits and business analysts leaving each and every member of the film disheartened.
Released in as many as 1,900 screens worldwide, the film has able to retain 800 screens till date with its counter releases taking over the theatres. The total collection might not be satisfactory at all, but the past gone weekend showed a little bit of rising in viewership, as recorded by the critics firms. As of now, it has successfully captured 34% of the total screens with mere 19% of tickets booking subsequently leaving most of the single screens empty.
Now the movie is running weekdays and asusual getting witnessing lesser footfall in theaters than before. On Monday, due to holiday it showed little better performance than previous day and raked the business of 3 crores. Then on the next day i.e. Tuesday, Farhan Akhtar starrer faced abrupt drop and managed to secure the amount of 0.91 crore.
Given a rating of 6.1 out of 10 by entertaining major BookMyShow, Rock On 2 is now getting dragged on the silver screen. Viewership is at its lowest in the overseas thus losing every bit of interest by the audiences. Leading media houses gave around 1.5 to 3 out of 5 hence being out of various multiplexes on its 7th day itself. Thus, Rock On 2 box office collection for one week in overseas has closed into Rs. 78 lakhs approximately.
