OMG 2 box office collection day 3: Akshay Kumar film ends first weekend on a high, rakes in Rs 43.56 crore – The Indian Express

After a promising start at the box office, the Pankaj Tripathi and Yami Gautam-starrer OMG 2 has gained momentum over the weekend. Initial estimates from industry tracker Sacnilk suggest that the film raked in Rs 17.50 crore on Sunday, pushing its total collection to Rs 43.56 crore. Akshay Kumar has an extended cameo appearance in OMG 2.
OMG 2 hit the theaters on Friday (August 11), alongside Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2. While Gadar 2 has maintained its dominance at the box office since its release, OMG 2 has been steadily gaining traction. The Sunny Deol film had a strong opening at the box office with Rs 40.10 crore, while OMG 2 began with a more modest collection of Rs 10.26 crore. However, OMG 2 experienced an upswing over the weekend, generating Rs 15.3 crore on Saturday and a further Rs 17.50 crore on Sunday.
OMG 2 isn’t only contending with Gadar 2, but it’s also facing a challenge from Rajnikanth’s Jailer, which also released on the same Friday. Despite these hurdles, the film continues to perform decently at the box office. The movie, which delivers a significant message about sex education, has garnered largely positive reviews.
Shubhra Gupta of the Indian Express shared her thoughts on OMG 2, stating, “Entering ‘OMG 2,’ I held some apprehensions. Given the backdrop of 2023 and the complexities of today’s India, could a film navigate religious themes without taking a didactic or biased stance? The sequel tactfully avoids the complexities of diversity by embracing a remarkably progressive and liberal viewpoint. It compels us to overlook the absence of representation from other faiths. The result is a captivating film that challenges the skepticism uninformed adults harbor towards our youth, as they explore their bodies with natural curiosity and openness. It underscores that this exploration isn’t ‘indecent’ or morally wrong; in fact, there’s no shame attached to it.”
