#StudentOfTheYear2 has a decent weekend, but when compared to Tiger Shroff’s earlier releases [data follows], the numbers should’ve been higher than #Baaghi  at least… #SOTY2 has an important task ahead: It needs to maintain the pace on weekdays.

Student of the year narrates about gyrating around the race to the Student Of The Year trophy, a superficial competition where girls only cheer from the sidelines while on the other hand the boys battle it out on to the field. Indeed, academics do not feature at all in determining who is the best student; all it takes is a sprint and a kabaddi match. Tiger Shroff as Rohan Sachdev, a brawny kabaddi champ from Pishorilal Chamandas College, follows his childhood sweetheart Tara Sutaria as Mridula Chawla (Mia) to the prestigious St Teresa’s College. When Rohan is rusticated, he returns to his old college and lead his team to victory in an inter-college cup against his former college. Meanwhile, Rohan gets off on the wrong foot with poor little rich girl Ananya Panday as Shreya Randhawa, who has a clinch to make his life miserable.
With Rs 21.60 crore opening, Alia Bhatt-Varun Dhawan featuring Kalank is the year’s highest opener of Bollywood and Akshay Kumar’s Kesari follows much closely with Rs 21.06 crore collection. Alia & Ranveer’s Gully Boy and Ajay Devgn’s Total Dhamaal occupy the third and fourth slots with opening collections of Rs 19.40 cr and Rs 16 cr, respectively.
