It can be seen from the collections that sequels are far bigger than their predecessors. The figures below do not take into account the growth in the market between films but even accounting for that the figures of sequels speak for themselves.

Also the sequels by and large have not got good media reviews that the predecessors did but the public gave them a huge thumbs up therefore proving to be unstoppable at the boxoffice. There may have been a few exceptions to the rule but with major films the sequels have not gone wrong till date.

This is a good sign for the sequels which may make it next year like Housefull 2, Don 2 and Dostana 2.
