Tiger Zinda Hai had an unsurprisingly excellent opening at the box office, and then it showed a real growth that was astonishing. Salman Khan’s action thriller has been getting good reviews, with praise to its action scenes and the agile performances of both him and Katrine Kaif. The movie opened at a jaw dropping 80 percent occupancy in the theaters, which is great since it has competition from Fukrey Returns, which has been accumulating money in an arid market until the arrival of Salman. The performance for the first day is exceptional and the movie was able to earn at least 35 crores at the box office, which combined both overseas and domestic cinemas.
Such a performance is encouraging, after a year of disappointing movies that failed to set Box office on fire. Tiger Zinda Hai, however, has been mounted on a much larger scale than Ek Tha Tiger, and has some very dangerous and expensive looking action moments for both Salman and Katrina. And even though it has been criticised as being overall a very lengthy movie, the audience reaction has been overwhelmingly positive,bwith some people comparing the performance of Salman Khan, to Stallone kn Rambo and other classic action adventures.
Girish Johar, the trade analyst, has said that they’re very much predicting the movie to do a very good business, as the critical and audience reaction has been better than expected. He has also said that even though the movie is not a genre that people watch on Holidays, it is still going to do very well, and he has predicted it to earn 100 crores by the end of the first week. If the predictions are true, then this could easily do at least 300 crores, as the other competition leaves the theaters and the movie expands worldwide too. So, another superhit for Salman.
