Khuda Haafiz Chapter 2: Box Office Collection
Competition can be found at the box office for Khuda Haafiz: Chapter 2. On its first day of release, the movie only earned 1.30 crores, significantly less than anticipated.
The surge on Sunday [3.13 crores] did the trick, with collections virtually doubling and nearly tripling that of Friday. While growth on Saturday was mild [1.72 crores], the jump on Sunday did the work.
This gave hope that the film was getting traction among its target audience, the gentry and that there would be some run if this part continued to step in during the weekdays.
That seems to be the case, as the movie directed by Faruk Kabir once again surpassed the 1 crore mark on Monday, raking in 1.30 crores*, which is the same amount as it did on Friday.
That is better than the picture’s essential minimum requirement, and the film now has a stable week ahead of it at the box office. The total amount that the movie has made so far is 7.45 crores.
As a result of the hold observed on Monday, it is now reasonable to anticipate that more than 3 crores will be brought in before the end of the week, which shows you will be reserved for it in the following week as well.

Khuda Haafiz Chapter 2: Review
The sequel to the 2020 action thriller Khuda Haafiz begins with Sameer (Vidyut Jammwal) and Nargis (Shivaleeka Oberoi) attempting to recover from the trauma of the latter’s kidnapping and gangrape in a fictional country called Noman.
After a therapy session, Nargis agrees to adopt Sameer’s friend’s five-year-old orphaned niece, Nandini. Their joy is short-lived, however, as Nandini is kidnapped and becomes a victim of a heinous crime.
What follows is a standard Bollywood revenge drama trope: power play by the rich spoilt boy’s grandmother (a ubiquitous evil Thakur played by Sheeba Chaddha), getting rid of the key witness, a corrupt cop, and the bloodthirsty hero going after the perpetrators in vigilante style.
Even though the premise is anything but novel and the treatment suffers from sensationalism in many instances, the film is cinematically excellent. Faruk Kabir handles the film’s reins well as director, with cinematographer Jitan Harmeet Singh assisting him.
Unsurprisingly, the action is fantastic, especially when Sameer takes on a jail bully, Jaiswal, who has been hired to kill him. The chase in the climax is equally exciting. It’s without a doubt one of the most memorable scenes.
Vidyut performs excellently as a hero, displaying raw action skills and engaging in plenty of hand-to-hand combat. Nargis, played by Shivaleeka, is convincing as she bitterly tells her husband off when he tells the therapist (Rukhsar) that everything is fine or admits that she is not ready for the responsibility of caring for a child.
However, it isn’t easy to comprehend how quickly she returns to normalcy. Thakurji exploiting her daughter-in-law also appears to be a bit of a stretch. Some scenes may be graphic and disturbing to those who cannot digest too much blood and gore.
Overall, Khuda Haafiz 2 is worth seeing for the intense action and emotionally charged story. The plot remains formulaic, but the drama keeps you interested.
