It fell below expectations. But I watched it twice. I had a blast watching the first time in Mysore multiplex with audience dancing. Experience was an all time high at that time.
At max, it was an average film saved by Chulbul Pandey & the entertainment factor. As a sequel it didn't contribute much for the franchise.
Ofcourse all the negativity is strictly social media based. Audience definitely had fun watching it in theatres. That's why Dabangg 3 is awaited.
