Lal Jr. scripted and directed Honey Bee 2 released yesterday in Kerala. The movie received mixed to negative reviews from the critics and the audience on the first day. But, it seems like the pre-release hype worked in favor of the movie, as it was able to manage a very good opening in spite of the negative word of mouth. As per our source, this Asif Ali starrer was able to gross Rs. 1.93 crore on Day 1. With the movie releasing in the 'Rest of India' market today, the overall Day 2 collection will be a really good figure. But, it's a hard game for the film to keep up this pace at the BO, because of the unfavorable reviews.
