The Fukrey boys are back with a bang. The first instalment had won millions of hearts with its comedy. Now the sequel — Fukrey Returns — has impressed everyone with its hilarious content.
The opening-day collection of its first instalment was Rs 2.62 crore and the second day's collection was Rs 8.10 crore. Viewers gave it a positive response, while the critics had mixed reviews.
The movie has now completed a week and the total collection of these seven days has touched Rs 50 crore within this short span of time. The film is expected to go from strength to strength on Day 8.
With no big release around, Fukrey Returns will surely rake in moolah in the days to come. It had surpassed the lifetime box office collection of its first part within just three days of its release. Fukrey (2013) had earned Rs 30.2 crore during its entire run at the box office.
Released on December 8, Fukrey Returns features Pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma, Ali Fazal, Manjot Singh, Richa Chadha and Pankaj Tripathi, who have reprised their Fukrey (2013) characters in Fukrey Returns.
Fukrey Returns sees Pulkit as Hunny (Vikas Gulati), Varun as Choocha (Dilip Singh), Ali as Zafar, Manjot as Lali and Richa as Bholi Punjaban. The story is that Bholi Punjaban is back from prison and is in no mood to spare those who put her there.
Meanwhile, the Fukrey, unaware of the fact that Bholi has been released, are leading the same life they had been at the time Bholi got arrested. The twist however is, Choocha can now predict the future.
Bholi catches up to the foursome and decides to use them to earn back all the money she had lost, and much more. Will Bholi, who has a big scam in mind, succeed in her plan?
Fukrey Returns is co-produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani under the banner of Excel Entertainment and directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba.
