‘Gaalipata 2’ was released on 12th August (Thursday) in Karnataka and overseas. The film got a good opening from the first show itself across the state. Though the film is not a great one, the film has struck the audience with its comic and emotional elements. The songs, acting and making are much appreciated by the audience and this mouth publicity has helped the film a lot.
Moreover, there is no competition from other films. Though big films like ‘Ravi Bopanna’, ‘Raksha Bandhan’ and ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ has been released with ‘Gaalipata 2’, the others have proved to be disasters at the box-office.

The film is recording houseful shows in the last three days and the collection in 300 plus theaters across the state is said to be more than 15 crores. This is just a gross collection and at the end of the first week, the producer is expected to get a cool profit of 10 crores after lessening the theater rent, commission and other expenditure.
