Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer War has earned a record-breaking Rs 53.35 crore on its opening day.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the box office figures on Twitter. He tweeted, “#War *Day 1* [Wed] biz…Hindi: ₹ 51.60 cr #Tamil + #Telugu: ₹ 1.75 cr Total: ₹ 53.35 cr [4000 screens] Nett BOC. India biz.
– Highest Day 1 for a #Hindi film
– Highest Day 1 on a national holiday
– Highest Day 1 for #HrithikRoshan, #TigerShroff, #YRF.”
War also stars Vaani Kapoor, Anupriya Goenka and Ashutosh Rana in significant roles.
The film released alongside multi-lingual film Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and Hollywood film Joker so it might face some competition in the initial days.
The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave War 2 stars and called the film ‘flashy but familiar’. Shubhra wrote in her review, “The chief trouble with War is that all the space is divvied up between Hrithik and Tiger, and they are so busy strutting across the screen, in all their glory, so ripped, so brawny, that the poor baddies don’t really get a chance. Not one scary villain who sends the shivers down our spines? Then the spies might as well be playing ring-around-the-roses with each other.”
Produced by Yash Raj Films, War will make the most of the mid-week release on October 2.
