Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger Zinda Hai opened to full house across the country and reports of film being a superhit has arrived. It is a hugely mounted film made on the whopping budget of 130 crores plus marketing and release cost makes it a 150 crore film. Tiger has to make 300 crores on box office atleast to be a profitable venture for producer, distributors and exhibitors. Produced by Yash Raj films Tiger Zinda Hai is a sequel to 2012 blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger. Tiger was a hugely anticipated film not just for audience but film trade as well. Due to the absence of Padmavati, cinema halls were mostly seeing a dry run with a little bit sparkle from Fukrey Returns and Star Wars- The Last Jedi.
Tiger is here to break the dry run for Salman Khan and Yash Raj as well. Yash Raj witnessed an exceptional flop by the name of Qaidi Band this year while Salman also had a dry run with Tubelight not living upto the mark. Tiger has blockbuster written all over it which was proven just by the response to that action-packed trailer. Ali Abbas Zafar and Salman have delivered a blockbuster last year by the name of Sultan, hence it was a no brainer that Ali was given the film after the diretor of Ek Tha Tiger said no to make the film a franchise.
Tiger as an event fill ticks up all the boxes of big opening and going by the audience reaction the collections will sustain themselves till atleast next friday. Single screens and Multiplexes are both running a housefull sign outside their theaters. Mostly Tiger is a stylized routine Salman film but that’s what the fans expect him to do and not portray an actual character like Laxman Singh Bisht in Tubelight. Tiger has many heroic moments that makes audience cheer and it has Salman on a horse fighting bad guys, doesn’t get more epic than this. A theatrical run like Tiger Zinda hai is expected to break the record of Golmaal Again and become the most successful film of the year.
