Saaho box office collection Day 1 Saaho box office collection Day 1: Prabhas starrer is off to a great start.

Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor’s multilingual actioner Saaho has opened with a bang. Its Hindi version earned Rs 24.40 crore on Day 1, while across all languages, it had a gross opening of more than Rs 130 crore.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, “#Saaho has a superb Day 1… Prabhas’ superstardom post #Baahubali2 + hype surrounding the biggie + excellent advance bookings ensured fantastic numbers… Day 2 and 3 biz crucial to pack a solid weekend total… Fri ₹ 24.40 cr Nett BOC.

The film’s official Twitter account shared, “BLOCKBUSTER Beginning for the biggest action entertainer of the year! #Saaho collects 130 CR+ gross worldwide on Day 1!”

Jackie Shroff, Chunky Panday, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Mahesh Manjrekar, Arun Vijay and Murali Sharma are also part of the film’s cast.

While speaking to Indianexpress.com, trade analyst Girish Johar had said earlier, “The expectations from Saaho are pretty much high especially down south because Prabhas is a megastar and he has got a massive following over there. In Hindi also, he has a familiar and comfortable tracking among his fans and he has the biggest hit Baahubali to his credit. The pre-release trends suggest Saaho will have an excellent start at the box office.”

“Predominantly, Saaho will have a huge wave at the south box office but in Hindi also the makers are planning to have a wide release in over 3500 screens which shows the craze among the exhibitors and the audience,” he added.

Saaho music review

Saaho's lack of cohesion in production, vocals and instrumentation may well be a too-many-cooks situation, but the album does have some bits where it shines.

Sabu Cyril on Saaho

In an interview with indianexpress.com, Sabu Cyril said, "Our movies have never seen anything like this. It took a lot of time to work on the sets because we needed them to be real and perfect. We hired VFX supervisor Kamalakannan and his 20-member team as well. We wanted to give the audience the best. From skyscrapers to unique action sequences, everything has been made on a mammoth scale. International stunt director Kenny Bates choreographed the action sequences. For example, there’s this chopper scene, shot in Italy, involving risky helicopter stunts, for which the team flew to Europe."

'Saaho is the flattest film ever'

A user @rohithaashv tweeted, "Safe to say the dust over #Saaho has settled. The biggest problem with this film is not that it is not up to the mark script/presentation wise but the fact that makers deceived us so much through promotions etc. I firmly believe the film is not made on a budget of 350 Cr. We have seen clippings from the film called “teasers”, which are nowhere in the film. This earlier happened with #Spyder where the shot from a teaser was nowhere to be seen in the film. It completely misguided the viewers and I think is just not done. And everybody saying #Saaho was a headache, please, it wasn’t even that. It’s the flattest film ever. It’s not too loud. Doesn’t have too much carnage either. It’s just flat."

Saaho fail to impress

All those years Sujeeth waited for Prabhas to complete Baahubali films, he could have worked on his drafts and added some value to his narration. The film feels like an overstretched foreplay leading to a climax, marked by a lengthy but interesting action set piece. The brilliantly composed chase and ensuing fistfights at the end are the only saving grace of this mammoth production.

Saaho takes a fantastic opening worldwide?

"#Saaho takes a fantastic opening worldwide on day 1, despite mixed reviews thanks to #PrabhasPower #Prabhas @ShraddhaKapoor @sujeethsign @NeilNMukesh @arunvijayno1 @UV_Creations @TSeries @CtcMediaboy," Sreedhar Pillai said via Twitter.

Saaho was awarded 1.5 stars by The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta in her review. Shubhra wrote, “Prabhas is perfectly suited to throwing sharp things at tattooed guys built like trucks, and mowing down a phalanx of heavies without expending too much effort. And he does have an ability to underplay and be droll. What’s also nice is that his distinctly South Indian accent is not hidden in the dubbed version: our heroes are finally pan-Indian. When he is being easy and light are the only watchable moments in this mammoth enterprise. And also when Chunky Panday gets off a few good lines, and delivers them with the ease of a veteran.”

“The rest, including the miscast Kapoor as a canny sleuthing cop, go by in a blur. Jackie Shroff is wasted in a brief cameo, and that’s a pity because he brings a loucheness to the table that no one else has. Bedi, costumed in gorgeous earth-coloured saris, doesn’t have a single evil bone in her body, and Neil Nitin Mukesh becomes just one more hapless character who is left to flounder in this never-ending rat-rat-a-tat-tat, biff-bang-thud, oh-there-goes-another-body-but-who-cares enterprise,” she added.
