Fighter Box Office Collection Day 2: Hrithik Roshan-Deepika Padukone’s Film Registers A “Massive Growth”

Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone’s Republic Day release Fighter registered a “massive growth” after underperforming on its opening day. According to trade Analyst Taran Adarsh, the film benefitted from two factors – word of mouth appreciation and Republic day holiday. The mass pockets also contributed to raise the number higher on Friday. Taran Adrash predicts the film has a solid chance to set big numbers if Saturday-Sunday “maintain the speed.” Fighter minted Rs 41.20 crore on its second day of release and the total stands at Rs 65.80 crore. Taran Adarsh wrote, “Fighter sets BO on fire, is EXTRAORDINARY on Day 2, benefits largely due to two factors: [i] Excellent feedback from audience and [ii] RepublicDay holiday… Mass pockets – which underperformed on Day 1 – witness massive growth on Day 2, thus contributing to the impressive total.”

He added, “The tremendous growth on Day 2 gives the film a solid chance to march forward… If Sat and Sun maintain the speed, a massive total is certainly on the cards… Frankly, it’s too early to guesstimate a figure for the 4-day extended weekend, since mass belt and spot bookings can elevate the situation on Sat and Sun multifold… So let’s wait and watch.” Take a look at his post here:

In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Fighter 2.5 stars and wrote, “Scripted by Ramon Chibb with Siddharth Anand, Fighter works best when it decides to slow down a tad in the second half. Its emotional high point occurs when Samsher meets Minal’s father (Ashutosh Rana) and mother (Geeta Agrawal) by accident and proceeds to impress upon them the enormity of their daughter’s achievements. Among the pilots in the Air Dragons team formed after the early 2019 terrorist attack on a CRPF convoy in Pulwama is Basheer Khan (Akshay Oberoi). He gets to spout what are by far the most patriotic lines in the film – a repeat of a poignant and patriotically pointed couplet that Shamsher recites early in the film.”

Fighter, directed by Siddharth Anand, stars Hrithik and Deepika, Anil Kapoor. They are part of an elite team that is called upon to respond to a threat from across the border. The cast includes Karan Singh Grover, Akshay Oberoi, Rishabh Sawhney and Sanjeeda Sheikh.
