February 13, 2017 14:53 IST

The hits and misses of the week.

Thanks to its title, lack of opposition and Akshay Kumar's popularity, Jolly LLB 2, which opened with a weak response, has managed to grow very well over the weekend. It will need to sustain through the week to make its mark at the box office.
