Bharat box office collection Day 14: The Salman Khan film is struggling to join the coveted Rs 200 crore club.

Salman Khan film Bharat has entered the Rs 200 crore club. The film has earned a total of Rs 201.82 crore till Tuesday. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared, “#Bharat scores double century at the BO… Crosses ₹ 200 cr mark… Is best in North, although biz has slowed down in other circuits… [Week 2] Fri 4.30 cr, Sat 6.37 cr, Sun 6.19 cr, Mon 2.63 cr, Tue 2.32 cr. Total: ₹ 201.86 cr. India biz.”

In another tweet, he gave a glance at Bharat’s box office performance over the weeks.

“My validation comes from box office collections. That means people have liked or not liked a film. It doesn’t make a difference if someone has given it so many stars (rating), no stars or ridiculed the film. This happens. It’s their bread and butter. God bless them. Give them two more bread,” Salman said in a group interview.

The actor said that his work has not stopped post the release of the movie as he has been promoting it through social media as well as by conducting interviews and press conferences around the film.

“I am very happy with the film doing really really well. Everyone’s work is being appreciated. I have not done these many interviews to promote the film that I am doing now. But it’s okay because all those people who have watched the film and liked it, this is to say a big thank you to them. People, who have gone to watch the film, are doing a good job by talking good about the film and encouraging others to watch it. But if people haven’t watched the film and they are not taking these people seriously, then I, myself, am going to say that go and watch it. It’s a good film,” the actor said.

The Salman Khan quiz

While Bharat may have sufficiently impressed the viewers, critics felt there was something lacking in the movie. The Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta gave it 2.5 stars in her review of the film.

"There’s enough conviction in these portions which carries Bharat, and us, through, even though Khan is given enough hero-giri moments to keep him in the foreground at all times. You get a sense of time past, of faded history in the recreation of those grand-but-tawdry circuses, and the ‘maut ka kuans’, which are now relegated to small town fairs, and job-hungry Indians chasing the oil boom in the Gulf, as hard-working labour," a section of her review read.

"It’s a pity that the director-star duo don’t take this as far as they could. They had a story which had the potential to become a solid reckoner of post-Independence nation-building, and how things rolled from then on, and a free hand to craft it. But the opportunity is squandered in unnecessary songs and dances, an aiming-for-cheap-laughs bad-taste comic thread," she added.
