Tiger Zinda Hai, starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, is unrelenting. The film has raked in Rs 232.52 crore till its second weekend and it seems the film will continue its winning streak even after the long New Year weekend. With no big release in the coming two weeks, Salman-starrer is sure to gain profits at the box office. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh posted the figures on Twitter. “#TigerZindaHai is UNSTOPPABLE… Expected to cross ₹ 250 cr mark today [Sun]… [Week 2] Fri 11.56 cr, Sat 14.92 cr. Total: ₹ 232.52 cr. India biz. #TZH”
Tiger Zinda Hai is the sequel to 2012’s Kabir Khan directorial Ek Tha Tiger and Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif reprise their roles of Indian and Pakistani spies respectively. The film reunited Salman and Katrina after five years. The two romanced on-screen in Kabir’s 2012 release. Ever since the release, the actors and the director Ali Abbas Zafar have been celebrating the success of the film.
Salman thanked his fans and also Katrina for the efforts she had put in while Katrina expressed that she was sure of this film to become a super-hit. And provided both Katrina and Salman desperately needed a hit this year, Tiger Zinda Hai worked out well for the two stars.
Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta had given an average review of the film. “Only once in a while, the film gives in and provides us a killing which sobers us up, but very quickly it’s back to the base, with Bhai taking over, and everyone– including Nurse Poorna (Goenka, who plays Parvathy’s role), and Zoya (Kaif plays her straight, made up to appear unmade and dishevelled for the most part, in keeping with the let’s –keep-everything-on-the-table spirit)—making way for him. But you can see she enjoys kicking butt: you wish she had more to do.”
