Now that Sooryavanshi has given Bollywood hope at the box office after its encouraging start at the box office, the YRF films releasing tomorrow has some advantages to make it click at the box office – the lovable jodi of Rani Mukerji and Saif Ali Khan who has stolen our hearts with wonderful performances with Hum Tum and Ta Ra Rum Pum, the current comedy sensation Pankaj Tripathi along with being the sequel to a hit franchise backed by high production values. However, unlike Bunty Aur Babli which had mind-blowing music composed by the dynamic Shankar-Eshaan-Loy and beautiful lyrics written by Gulzar, the sequel is devoid of any hit songs.

The comedy drama is being released in 2500 screens across India and 800 screens in the overseas market
