In a stunning display of box office prowess, the highly anticipated film ‘Adipurush,’ directed by Om Raut, has stormed the cinemas, raking in an astounding ₹150 crore worldwide on its opening day. Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics and audiences, the magnum opus featuring Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, and Saif Ali Khan in pivotal roles has left a resounding impact on the global box office.
The Hindi version of ‘Adipurush’ garnered an estimated ₹36-38 crore on its opening day, establishing itself as the third-highest post-pandemic Hindi film opening, trailing behind only ‘Pathaan’ and ‘KGF 2.’ Simultaneously, the all-India collection across multiple languages reached a staggering ₹90 crore, indicating the film’s pan-Indian appeal and Prabhas’ immense popularity.
With Prabhas essaying the role of Raghava, Kriti Sanon as Janaki, and Saif Ali Khan portraying the formidable Ravana, ‘Adipurush’ is helmed by Om Raut, renowned for his previous blockbuster ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior.’ The film’s enthralling storyline and grand scale production have undoubtedly contributed to its massive success at the box office.
According to industry insiders, the Telugu version of ‘Adipurush’ performed exceptionally well in Hindi circuits and South India, contributing significantly to the film’s staggering day one collections. Early estimates suggest that the film amassed approximately ₹90 crore nett in India and a gross collection of ₹110-112 crore. Furthermore, it is projected that the film’s global earnings could reach ₹150 crore once the final overseas numbers are accounted for.
Despite facing stiff competition, ‘Adipurush’ surpassed the opening day collections of the highly anticipated ‘Brahmastra,’ which had garnered ₹36 crore in India last year. This feat solidifies Prabhas’ status as a box office force to be reckoned with and cements the film’s place among the most successful releases of recent times.
The phenomenal response to ‘Adipurush’ is a testament to the audience’s unwavering enthusiasm for larger-than-life cinematic experiences. It highlights their enduring love for mythological sagas and showcases the remarkable star power possessed by Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, and Saif Ali Khan.
As the weekend progresses, trade analysts anticipate the film’s box office figures to soar even higher, buoyed by positive word-of-mouth and the fervent anticipation of moviegoers. With its captivating storytelling, exceptional performances, and awe-inspiring visuals, ‘Adipurush’ is poised to leave an indelible mark on the annals of Indian cinema.
As the box office numbers continue to pour in, the extraordinary success of ‘Adipurush’ sends a clear message to the industry: despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, the allure of cinema remains undiminished, and audiences are eager to embrace spectacular storytelling on the big screen.
