Every time a movie is released after passing the security check of the sensor board, it once have to pass the barricade of the various newspapers and media platforms who get themselves busy in rating the movie on intellectual grounds. Even though movie in the absence of the entertainment quotient can lack the mass appeal and same was the case with the action-packed sequel “Tiger Zinda Hai”. If someone was delivering their verdict considering a loose story, other one was just trying to find the logics behind each and every scene. Some considered it funny and others considered it the typical Indian melodrama.
But had the common masses ever heed attention to these so-called intellectual thought-process at least when it comes to entertain themselves? How could they? At the time when their whole year have been lukewarm due to mediocre movies how could they have remained complacent towards such an action-packed movie starring the godfather of action in Bollywood? Would it have been possible that the die-hard fans of Salman heed attention to such reviews when they were on an advantageous position of seeing the scintillating diva; Katrina Kaif rolling in action? And this was quite evident on the opening day of the movie as it garnered an opening collection of ₹ 34.10 Cr surpassing the opening collections of multi-starrer Golmaal Again and Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees.
On the weekend it crossed the ₹ 100 Cr mark as defying all the predictions it touched the figure of ₹ 114.93 Cr alongwith the record figure of ₹ 45.53 Cr which is the highest single day collection for a Bollywood movie till now.
Thanks to the extended weekend of Christmas on Monday which have helped the action-packed movie cross the ₹150-Cr mark. The eve of Christmas and the absence of any major movies to be released in next few weeks is also going to favor alongwith our own Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s fan following, the movie is sure to set new heights when it comes to box office.
