New Delhi: Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2, which released across 1400 screens, has a 'flying start' with a first day collection of Rs 6.80 crores. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the numbers on Twitter on October 17.

Though the movie scored a fairly decent number at the box office, the sequel to the 2011 laugh-riot, opened to mixed reviews on Friday.

Saibal Chatterjee in his review to NDTV said: "Does Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 have any redeeming features? Go look for a needle in a haystack. It might be easier to find." However, he also mentioned: "The only relatively likeable performance is delivered by Sunny Singh, who plays the boy who is reduced to running errands for the girl who has him in her thrall."
