Akshay Kumar’s Gold was one of the much-anticipated films of the year and it seems the actor’s film is meeting the audience’s expectations. Gold, which released on August 15, has already earned Rs 33.25 crore in its first two days. The film opened at Rs 25.25 crore and followed it up with Rs 8 crore on the second day. The dip was expected as the film released on a weekday holiday.
Gold released alongside John Abraham starrer Satyameva Jayate and so far, both the films are doing great business. Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Gold witnessed a decline on Thu… Biz should gain momentum from today onwards… Plexes hold the key… Wed 25.25 cr, Thu 8 cr. Total: ₹ 33.25 cr. India biz.”

The film has already made a record of being one of the highest opening films of 2018. Gold sits in the third position after Sanju, which tops the chart with Rs 34.75 crore and Race 3 on the second position with Rs 29.17 crore.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the figures on Twitter and wrote that the film is doing great at multiplexes across major cities, He tweeted, “#Gold has an EXTRAORDINARY Day 1… Takes a FAB START at plexes across major centres… Wed ₹ 25.25 cr. India biz.”
The Indian Express’ film critic Shubhra Gupta in her review mentioned, “What makes the film worth a watch, despite some problems, are the flashes of well-done humour, the skirmishes between the players, and the rousing finale. The period is done beautifully, and despite the predictable sports film tropes–underdogs coming up top, conflicts being resolved, last minute fortune reversals—the younger players keep up the tempo, with debutant Sunny Kaushal doing a stand-out job.”
