tanhaji box office collection day 1 Tanhaji box office collection Day 1: The Ajay Devgn starrer earns Rs 15.10 crore.

Ajay Devgn, Kajol and Saif Ali Khan starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Hero released in theaters on January 10. The film released alongside Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak.

Directed by Om Raut, the film is based on the story of Tanhaji Malusare, the brave Maratha warrior. Tanhaji fought under the flag of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. He fought against the Mughals to take back the fort at Kondana.

Tanhaji is Ajay Devgn’s 100th feature film.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the film’s opening day figures and wrote, “#Tanhaji exceeds expectations and posts healthy total on Day 1… Biz grew rapidly from post-noon onwards… Excellent in #Maharashtra [#Mumbai, parts of #CP and #Nizam circuits]… Glowing word of mouth should ensure solid growth on Day 2 and 3… Fri ₹ 15.10 cr. #India biz.”

Earlier, Girish Johar told indianexpress.com and said, “Tanhaji is a magnum opus. It tells the tale of an unsung warrior from the Maratha community. The pre-release buzz suggests the film will have a good box office collection. It will be releasing in over 3000 screens. It is also coming in 3D to justify its scale on the big screen. So, I am expecting a fantastic start for the Om Raut directorial and then depending upon word of mouth, a long run at the box office is also expected.”

He added, “Ajay Devgn, Kajol and Saif Ali Khan together are a treat to watch. I think all three have a big fan following and them toplining the film will definitely add to its box office performance.”

    Tanhaji to earn Rs 10 crore on opening day?

    Trade analyst Girish Johar earlier told indianexpress.com that the film could earn Rs 10 crore on its opening day. He said, "The pre-release buzz suggests the film will have a good box office collection. It will be releasing in over 3000 screens. It is also coming in 3D to justify its scale on the big screen. So, I am expecting a fantastic start for the Om Raut directorial and then depending upon word of mouth, a long run at the box office is also expected. "

    The Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta gave Tanhaji 2 stars and wrote, "Given the times we are in, as long as we get an array of costumery, and our noble ancestors rattling their sabres, flag-waving period films will get audiences. Or will they? Whatever happened to provenance? I enjoyed Saif’s maniacal bad guy, which comes off as yet another variant (Ranveer Singh, Sanjay Dutt) of the flesh-devouring, diabolical, ruthless enemy that Bollywood currently delights in. Devgn and Kajol have a couple of soft moments."

    She added, "And then there’s the kinetic climax, all strategy and battle and CGI. Scores of soldiers are shown scaling impossibly steep cliff-sides, and running into a rain of bows-and-arrows; Tanhaji himself races towards certain doom, but also victory, and the ‘maukaparast darinda’ is handed out an end with a bang."
