Despite both being popular franchise films, Total Dhamaal week 1 footfalls were on an average 65% higher than SOTY2

Popular franchise films have most of the time worked for the Indian audience across all demographics. In 2019 till this date, there were two such big franchise films released – Total Dhamaal and Student Of The Year 2Total Dhamaal is a massy film starring Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffrey and Riteish Deshmukh. SOTY2 is another popular film starring the action hero Tiger Shroff and debutantes Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria.

If we compare the number of audience that came to cinema halls to watch these films in their first week, we will realise that SOTY2 is far behind compared to Total Dhamaal. This is explained in the table below by comparing the admit of four biggest cinema chains of India - PVR, Inox, Carnival and Cinepolis.
