“Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel opened with 15.49 crs GBOC (13.01 Crores NBOC) – (revised nos) on day 1, making it the biggest opening for any solo Super Hero movie. And continues its the winning streak on day 2 as well, earning Rs 16.79 Crore GBOC (14.10 crs NBOC) and a growth of 8% from Day 1. The total stands at 32.28 Crores GBOC (27.11 Crores NBOC),” a statement read.
The much-awaited film has largely received positive reviews from the audience as well as critics. It is giving a stiff competition to Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu starrer Badla that released on the same day.
The Indian Express film critic, Shalini Langer, in her review, wrote, “Marvel Cinematic Universe finally has a woman superhero, and she arrives on the scene kicking some real ass. While Brie Larson would seem an unlikely choice to play her — known best for her Oscar-winning performance as a mother held captive in Room — she brings to the role a welcome mix of innocence and resolve, vulnerability and determination.”
The movie also features Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening and Jude Law among others in significant roles.
