Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar’s latest venture ‘Holiday – A Soldier is Never Off Duty’ has delivered a successful innings at the Box Office in its opening weekend. The film, also starring Sonakshi Sinha, has collected over Rs. 40 crore in the first three days of its release.
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh gave the official figures, “#Holiday Fri 12.18 cr, Sat 12.34 cr, Sun 16.80 cr. Total: 41.32 cr nett. India biz… FANTASTIC growth in biz on Sunday!”
Akshay Kumar, faced a dry spell at Box Office last year with ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Again’ and ‘Boss’ – failing miserably.
Contrary to the Box Office verdict, ‘Holiday’, did not receive good reviews. The Indian Express, reviewer Shubhra Gupta said, “‘Holiday’ gives Akshay Kumar a chance to return to full combat mode. Till he’s going bang bang, he’s all right; the moment he gets romancing and joshing, he slides. So does the film.”
The film is the official remake of Tamil film ‘Thupakki’ and is directed by A R Murugadoss.
