Two Bollywood movies Force 2 and Tum Bin 2 are set to have a box office clash on November 18. With a much stronger star cast than Tum Bin 2, Force 2 is likely to witness a much better box office collection on its opening day.
While Force 2 features John Abraham, Sonakshi Sinha and Tahir Raj Basin, Tum Bin 2 has a fresh star cast except the female lead. The romantic drama features Neha Sharma, Aditya Seal and Aashim Gulati.
Force 2 is a high-octane action thriller and Tum Bin 2 is a romantic drama. The trailer of the John-starrer had received good response from the viewers. To be released in around 2000 screens, it is expected that the movie's first day collection will be around Rs 5 crore at the Indian box office.
On the other hand, Anubhav Sinha directorial Tum Bin 2 apparently has less hype around the film than Force 2. However, many big Bollywood celebrities have been promoting Tum Bin 2 on social media and it has garnered curiosity among the fans. Also, the original film Tum Bin was much loved by the viewers and that might urge audience to watch the film.
Nevertheless, Tum Bin 2 is expected to collect around Rs 2 crore on its first day at the box office. One of the factors that might affect the business of both the films is the current issue of demonetisation. The ban on old 500 rupee note and 1000 rupee note, followed by long queues in ATMs, has curbed the purchasing tendency of the people to great extent.
Commoners are not willing to spend hard cash easily and that might affect the collection of Force 2 and Tum Bin 2 at the box office. Even the last release Rock On 2 could not put much impact at the box office and it was being believed that the issue of demonetisation had hit the film's collection.
