Hrithik Roshan’s aerial action spectacle, “Fighter,” took flight on its opening day, earning a commendable Rs 24 crore. While the film showcased Hrithik’s signature charisma and thrilling aerial stunts, its day one box office collection fell short of his previous blockbusters, “Bang Bang” and “Krrish 3.”
“Fighter” had generated significant buzz leading up to its release, with fans eager to witness Hrithik’s return to the action genre. The film’s aerial sequences, touted as some of the most challenging in Bollywood, promised a unique cinematic experience.
However, despite the excitement surrounding the film, “Fighter” faced stiff competition from the high expectations set by Hrithik’s earlier successes. “Bang Bang” and “Krrish 3” had set the bar high with their massive opening day collections, making “Fighter’s” Rs 24 crore debut fall short of the mark.
Trade analysts suggest that the comparison with Hrithik’s previous hits doesn’t necessarily diminish the film’s potential. “Fighter” has received praise for its cutting-edge action sequences and Hrithik’s impeccable performance, indicating that the film may experience sustained success in the coming days.
While “Bang Bang” raked in an impressive Rs 27.54 crore on its opening day, “Krrish 3” soared even higher with a staggering Rs 25.50 crore collection. “Fighter,” though slightly trailing behind, has become the center of attention for its unique storyline and Hrithik’s portrayal of a character involved in aerial combat.
Industry insiders emphasize that the box office journey for “Fighter” is just beginning, and its performance over the weekend will be crucial in determining its overall success. Factors such as word-of-mouth reviews and audience reactions will play a pivotal role in shaping the film’s trajectory in the coming weeks.
Despite the comparative analysis, Hrithik Roshan remains a formidable force at the box office, and “Fighter” is expected to garner substantial collections in the days to come. The film’s unique theme and Hrithik’s star power may well contribute to its longevity in the theaters.
“Fighter” may have initially fallen short of Hrithik Roshan’s earlier blockbusters in terms of day one collections, the film’s gripping action and Hrithik’s stellar performance suggest that it has the potential to soar higher in the days ahead, establishing its own mark in Bollywood’s action-packed landscape.
