Salaar Part 1 - Ceasefire has turned out to be the winner in the clash with Dunki, and day 6 numbers look very good for the Prabhas starrer
Prabhas and Prithviraj Sukumaran-starrer Salaar Part 1 - Ceasefire has been creating havoc at the box office, not only in the Indian market but also making good bucks overseas, taking its worldwide collection to Rs 500 crore. This marks Prabhas' third film after Baahubali and Baahubali 2 to enter the Rs 500-crore club. According to trade analyst and business expert Manobala Vijayabalan, this film has made Prabhas a pan-India star.
While sharing the worldwide box office update of the film, Vijayabalan said, "Salaar zooms past Rs 500 crore." The film is now inching closer to the Rs 550 crore mark at the global box office.
While the worldwide collection of the Prabhas-starrer is breaking records, the film is equally roaring at the domestic box office. The movie is set to cross the Rs 300-crore milestone on its seventh day. The film earned a historic Rs 90.70 crore on its opening day and Rs 56.3 crore on its second day. On its third day, the film earned Rs 62.05 crore, and Rs 46.30 crore on its fourth day.
According to Sacnik, the film will touch around the Rs 297.40-crore mark by Wednesday. Reports suggest the film logged a total occupancy of 28.98 percent across the Hindi belt, followed by Telugu with about 28.02 percent, then Malayalam and Tamil with 21.56 percent and 18.20 percent, respectively.
Directed by Prashanth Neel, the film centers around the transformation of two close friends into bitter enemies as a result of unforeseen circumstances. The cast includes Prabhas, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Shruti Haasan, Jagapathi Babu, Tinnu Anand, Sriya Reddy, and Easwari Rao in significant roles. Produced by Hombale Films, the movie was released globally on December 22.
While we at OTTplay reviewed the Hindi version of the film and a chunk of it reads, “Compared to the past Prabhas movies post Baahubali 2 and Prashant Neel’s KGF franchise, Salaar Part 1 – Ceasefire has to be the best film in their filmographies. It gets the world-building, storytelling, and 'vibe' right. It is almost like someone is trying to redo Saaho, but a better version of it is born. You can call Salaar Prabhas’ redemption for Saaho. But while I call them the best, one has to see what is kept on the other side. Mediocre movies have little to nothing to offer. So even at its best, Salaar is still quite a flawed movie”
