The Tiger Shroff starrer, which has performed wonders by minting Rs 25.10 crore on its first day itself, is being received with open arms at the box office. In fact, the film has already become the highest opener of 2018, surpassing Padmaavat, which had released in January this year.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the numbers of the film, tweeting, “#Baaghi2 is a LOTTERY… Continues to SURPRISE [the trade] and SHOCK [the pessimists] with SENSATIONAL biz on Sat… Proves all calculations and assumptions wrong… Fri 25.10 cr, Sat 20.40 cr. Total: ₹ 45.50 cr. India biz.”
Not just the audience, the film is impressing Tiger’s contemporaries too. Hrithik Roshan praised Tiger and tagged him as India’s best action hero. He wrote, “You’v done it !!! I’m now looking forward to working with the BEST action hero in the industry ! Bravo! Keep flying high!” to which Tiger replied, “Hrithik sir!! It will always be the other way around! I’m looking fwd to working with my best hero in the country! Pls do watch the film when free sir. Lots of love always!”

Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta had given a positive review to the film.
“Tiger is cleverly surrounded by a splendid supporting cast. There’s the fully-in-the-groove Manoj Bajpayee as a sardonic cop; Randeep Hooda as the reefer-smoking hippie undercover agent; and Deepak Dobriyal as a shady-but-good-hearted car dealer with a side business in powder. They lift the film every time they come on, knowing their place in the pantheon (the hero is on top, everyone else is below, waiting for their dialogue), and shining nevertheless”, she had written in her review of the film.
