Noted film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh, on Tuesday, shared a tweet summing up the business of War. “#War crosses lifetime biz of #Sultan and #Padmaavat… Now seventh highest-grossing #Hindi film… [#Hindi; Week 3] Fri 2.80 cr, Sat 4.35 cr, Sun 5.60 cr, Mon 2.10 cr. Total: ₹ 290 cr. Including #Tamil + #Telugu: ₹ 304 cr. #India biz,” he wrote.
The film stars Hrithik, Tiger, and Vaani with Ashutosh Rana, Anupriya Goenka, Soni Razdan and Dipannita Sharma in pivotal roles. Helmed by Siddharth Anand, War garnered worldwide appreciation. Siddharth Anand has helmed several films, including Salaam Namaste, Bachna Ae Haseeno and Bang Bang.
While War has been applauded as an action film, it has also been criticized for a weak storyline. The climax, however, is gripping for both the Aye and Naysayers.
