Saaho is a hit in the Hindi version. It is bringing in audiences even in the second week, what with Rs. 2.60 crores more coming in on Monday. Compared to Friday collections of Rs. 3.75 crores, this is a good enough hold and looks like collections would stay over the Rs. 2 crores mark right through the weekdays.
The film has now collected Rs. 133.58 crores already and would be close to the Rs. 140 crores mark before the week is through. Post that Rs. 150 crores would be a comfortable milestone and that would ensure that a hit status is on the cards.
The Prabhas, Shraddha Kapoor and Neil Nitin Mukesh starrer has done well so far and though there were 2-3 days in between the fall seemed more than expected, Saaho has typically done well to pull itself back in the reckoning instead of taking a free fall route. That is being possible due to mass centres patronising the film well, especially due to the grand action sequences that it boasts of.
One just feels that had the potential of the story been leveraged further, this was easily a Rs. 200 Crore Club film in the offering as it had all going for it with audiences truly rooting for the star of the show and the action genre.
