Prabhas & Shraddha Starrer ‘Saaho’ Crosses Rs 200 Cr At Box-Office Despite Bad Reviews

The Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer spy thriller ‘Saaho’ has been enjoying a comfortable stay at the box-office. The film has achieved gross earnings of Rs 200 crore in three days – combined earnings of the film’s Hindi, Telugu and Tamil versions! ‘Saaho’ is even set to touch the 300 crore mark. 

The film released on August 30 and witnessed an outstanding start. On the first day at the box office the stars shined having grossed Rs 104 crore worldwide. And not only that, Saaho has also performed in the international market.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter handle to declare,”#Saaho sets the BO on… Shows big gains on Day 3… Packs a phenomenal total in its opening weekend… North and East India are exceptional, other circuits fantastic too… Fri 24.40 cr, Sat 25.20 cr, Sun 29.48 cr. Total: ? 79.08 cr Nett BOC. India biz. #Hindi version.”

The film’s reviews, however, weren’t as terrific as the numbers. According to trade analyst Joginder Tejuja, the negative reviews did not hamper the film’s performance in any way. He wrote, “#Exclusive- #Saaho (Hindi) – #EarlyEstimates. The film is going great guns today with collections heading towards 26-27 cr. It’s simple – Critics’ views have had ZERO impact in the film. It’s audience word of mouth that will do the talking and so far it’s going excellent!”

He further went on to share, “It may be too too early to say as weekdays are yet to come. However, in my observation of films for decades now, #Saaho could well emerge as the BIGGEST turnaround story where a film perceived to be a DISASTER could emerge as SUPERHIT. Again, *early days*, but still….”
