The box office in the realm of Indian cinema is frequently a battleground where films fight for the top place. One such candidate is the much awaited “Chandramukhi 2” the follow up to the legendary Tamil horror-comedy “Chandramukhi”. This film which also features Raghava Lawrence and Kangana Ranaut debuted in theaters on September 28 and promised viewers an exciting time. In this piece, we’ll examine how “Chandramukhi 2” did at the box office on its first day the difficulties it encountered and what this implies for Kangana Ranaut the film’s leading actress.

The Opening Day Triumph

The box office for “Chandramukhi 2” started off strong, earning an amazing Rs 7.5 crore on its first day across all languages, according to industry tracker Sacnilk. In both Hindi and Telugu, this movie continues the narrative that Rajinikanth and Jyothika started in the 2005 blockbuster “Chandramukhi”.Fans enthusiastically flocked to the movies to see the revival of this cherished franchise.

Regional Success and Challenges

It’s interesting to see how the movie did in various parts of India. “Chandramukhi 2” was able to fill movie theaters in Tamil Nadu a state with a strong love for cinema with ┬árespectable 51.90 percent occupancy on its opening day. The occupancy rate in Telugu states was 42.65 percent demonstrating a significant presence in the southern markets. With an occupancy rate of only 12.77 percent the Hindi Belt was difficult obstacle for the movie. This striking difference makes it unclear whether Hindi-speaking viewers would find the movie appealing.

A Hopeful Weekend

Despite a lukewarm start in the Hindi belt “Chandramukhi 2” is banking on the long weekend following Ganpati Visarjan and Eid-e-Milad an-Nabi holiday to boost its box office figures. With more time on their hands, moviegoers might give this horror comedy chance leading to surge in ticket sales. The film’s success during this period could be a turning point for its overall performance.

Kangana Ranaut’s Comeback

Kangana Ranaut makes her big-screen comeback with “Chandramukhi 2” following a less-than-stellar run with her prior film “Dhaakad” in 2022. It was disheartening for the talented actress because “Dhaakad” only garnered an insufficient Rs 3.77 crores in global sales. Her most recent movies, such as “Thalaivii,” “Panga,” and “Judgemental Hai Kya,” have had trouble making money at the box office.

Mixed Reviews and Tough Competition

Film reviewers have given “Chandramukhi 2” a mixed bag of reviews, despite the excitement it has garnered. Raghava Lawrence plays two roles in the movie, which gives the narrative an additional level of intricacy. But it debuts at the same time as “Fukrey 3” and “The Vaccine War,” two well-known Hindi movies. The Vaccine War is directed by National Award-winning filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri, who is also well-known for his most recent movie office hits, “The Kashmir Files” and “The Tashkent Files,” and “Fukrey 3” is the third installment in a massively successful comedy series.For “Chandramukhi 2,” especially in North India, these Hindi films provide a tough obstacle.

Kangana’s Perspective

The Hindu had an interview with Kangana Ranaut in which she discussed her part in “Chandramukhi 2.” I am the original Chandramukhi, she declared. It’s an origin narrative that explores who she is and how and why she became a ghost. I’ve never played a commercial heroine, and I tend to choose art movies or stories about women’s battles and hardships. But there comes a moment when you want to try something new, and making a movie with song and dance scenes is fantastic. The conclusion of the movie is something you should anticipate.


“Chandramukhi 2” has only just started its box office voyage, therefore it’s too soon to tell how it will fare. The film’s original approach to the Chandramukhi character adds mystery, and Kangana Ranaut’s comeback to mainstream cinema is a noteworthy feature. However, it has to contend with a lot of known Hindi movies. Only time will tell if “Chandramukhi 2” will captivate fans and win the box office as the extended weekend plays out.
