Simmba closed 2018 with a bang. The Rohit Shetty directorial, starring Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan has crossed the Rs 100-crore mark on its Day 5. The cop drama, which hit screens on December 28, had an impressive start at the box office. With a Rs 20.72 crore collection on its opening day, the film became Ranveer’s highest opener. His earlier release Padmaavat had managed to mint Rs 19 crore on its first day.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the latest figures of Simmba. he wrote, “#Simmba starts 2019 with a big bang… Runs riot at the BO on Day 5 [1 Jan 2019]… Is truly UNSTOPPABLE… Ranveer’s fourth film to cross ₹ 100 cr mark… Fri 20.72 cr, Sat 23.33 cr, Sun 31.06 cr, Mon 21.24 cr, Tue 28.19 cr. Total: ₹ 124.54 cr. India biz.”

He further wrote, “While #Simmba is a massive success, it’s having a dream run in Mumbai circuit… Nears ₹ 50 cr mark in *5 days* in Mumbai circuit alone… An EXTRAORDINARY feat…
Fri 7.77 cr… Sat 9.11 cr… Sun 12.13 cr… Mon 8.16 cr… Tue 9.48 cr… Total: ₹ 46.65 cr. Mumbai circuit biz.”

On Monday, Simmba earned better than its opening day, minting Rs 21.24 crore. Going by its performance, it seems the action film won’t slow down anytime soon. Also, no competition at the box office this week is an added advantage for Simmba.

Karan Johar took to Instagram and heaped praise on Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh, He wrote, “Working with @itsrohitshetty has been one of the best experiences of my life! Have learnt so much from his process and his precision! Making a mainstream film that is loved across the audience base is no mean task and he has mastered the art of doing just that!!! He loves his audiences tremendously and only makes movies for them! Thank u my dearest Rohit for everything! You have a large heart and a solid one too! @ranveersingh is and will always be SIMMBA for life!! You two were meant to be brothers in biceps!!!! Love you!!! Thank you! What a great end of the year to have!!!”

While the audience seems to be loving the film, critics gave mixed reviews. The Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta wrote in her review, “In Singham Returns Again, oops, sorry, Simmba, a police officer sloughs off his rough-and-ready skin and emerges as the saviour of the poor and meek. Wait, haven’t we seen that before? Bad question, because this one could just as well have been called Singham part 3.”
