Saaho box office collection Day 10: Prabhas film is still ruling the box office.

Prabhas’ action thriller Saaho has stayed strong in the first week of its theatrical run. While it is performing well worldwide and in south India, its Hindi version is super strong as well.

Saaho, which stars Shraddha Kapoor as the female lead, has grossed more than Rs 400 crore worldwide. A tweet from the official Twitter handle of the movie read. “Can you imagine anything getting bigger than this. #Saaho crosses 400Cr+ at BOs worldwide”

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 reviews are mixed, Saaho is mostly earning praise from the audience. Moviegoers are particularly loving its action scenes, stunt work and visual effects.

Director Sujeeth had thanked fans for showing love on his film. In an Instagram post, he said, “Made my first short film when I was 17 years old. No money, No team but had a lot of support from Orkut and family. I edited, shot and directed 90% of my short films. I learned from my mistakes and criticism was always like an extra boost for my journey. Travelled very long way and faced many hurdles but never gave up. TODAY MANY PEOPLE saw SAAHO – some expected more from it, but many loved it! Thanks to all for watching the movie :) Please watch it again if you missed anything. I am sure you’ll enjoy even more. #Saaho.”

Our verdict

Everything a thriller needs is in here, and you settle down, fully prepared for a non-stop, breathless, firing-from-all-cylinders ride. But Saaho turns out to be a damp squib.

Saaho touches 3 million dollar mark in US!

Ramesh Bala posted on Twitter, "#Saaho hits 3M in North America!! Thanks one and all for making it a massive success! #SaahoUsA @pharsfilm @yrf #Prabhas @ShraddhaKapoor"

The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave Saaho 1.5 stars. In her review, Shubhra wrote, "Characters come and go, whizzing past us so fast that we never feel invested. Cars are blown up like there’s no tomorrow. Growling men show up with bazookas. A Roman-style arena, complete with a duel, is conjured up (don’t ask). Clearly, those responsible for the plot (what’s that) believe that if they throw everything at us, some of it will stick."

"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," she added.
