The opening day box office collection of OMG 2 reflects a blend of challenges and opportunities as it clashed with the release of “Gadar 2.” The film earned ₹10.26 crore on its release day, showcasing a promising start amidst the competition.
Gadar 2 earned much more than OMG 2 on its first day of release. Starring Akshay Kumar, Pankaj Tripathi, Yami Gautam, and Arun Govil, “OMG 2” faces the task of maintaining its momentum in CBFC and now in audience amidst the influence of “Gadar 2” on the audience.

On its opening day, “OMG 2” amassed ₹10.26 crore, as highlighted by Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh. Despite the formidable presence of “Gadar 2” at the box office, the film’s performance surpassed expectations.
Taran Adarsh’s tweet stated that “OMG 2” exhibited stronger occupancy in prime multiplexes during evening and night shows, indicating potential growth over the weekend:

Impact of “Gadar 2” Wave
The simultaneous release of “Gadar 2” has undoubtedly affected the initial box office figures of “OMG 2.”
Taran Adarsh acknowledges the “Gadar 2” wave’s influence on the collection numbers, while also emphasizing the film’s notable evening and night show performance.
The challenge for “OMG 2” like changes in Akshay Kumar’s character lies in managing this competition and harnessing positive word of mouth to secure its position.
Taran Adarsh predicts that the upcoming Independence Day holiday and the extended weekend will play a pivotal role in boosting “OMG 2” business. He emphasizes that the film’s success depends significantly on positive audience reception and word of mouth.
The crucial task for the film lies in maintaining its appeal beyond the holiday period to establish a lasting presence.

Mixed Critical Reception
Initial reviews for “OMG 2” have been mixed among film critics. Saibal Chatterjee’s review for NDTV awards the film 2 stars out of 5. He highlights Akshay Kumar’s charismatic presence, emphasizing its potential to enhance the film’s box office prospects.
However, Chatterjee notes that the premise of divine intervention in everyday problems lacks a clear and convincing establishment.
Directed by Amit Rai, “OMG 2” serves as the sequel to the 2012 film “OMG – Oh My God,” featuring Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal. The first installment revolved around Kanji Lalji Mehta’s legal battle against God following the destruction of his shop in an earthquake.
The film garnered attention for its unique concept and also starred Mithun Chakraborty, Govind Namdev, and the late actor Om Puri.
“OMG, 2” enters the cinematic arena with a notable opening day collection despite the competition posed by “Gadar 2.” The film’s performance, influenced by the “Gadar 2” wave, points toward both challenges and growth prospects.
As the film navigates its journey amidst critical reviews and the influence of its contemporary release, its ability to sustain positive momentum through word of mouth remains crucial for its overall success.
The upcoming Independence Day holiday is poised to play a pivotal role in shaping “OMG 2’s” box office trajectory in the days ahead.
