War was good on Thursday as Rs. 24.35 crores more came in. The drop is a little more than 50%, though it would have been better had the collections been on the right side of Rs. 25 crores mark. After all, the film has seen good reviews coming its way and has been generally liked as well, which means the word of mouth is essentially positive.
Nonetheless, one also has to consider the fact that first day was simply spectacular and now the second day is sort of bonus numbers since the real weekend is yet to come. As long as the numbers stay over the Rs. 20 crores mark today, there is a good hope that at least on Sunday, if not Saturday itself, the Sidharth Anand directed film will get into the 30s again, which would be a great result.
Last year when Thugs of Hindostan had released on Diwali and set a huge record, it crashed in subsequent days. Good hold on the second day, despite being entirely working, has ensured that for War there would be growth in days to come. How big, would eventually decide where this Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer is heading. So far the film has collected Rs. 77.70 crores and one waits to see if with some stretch, the Rs. 100 crores mark is crossed today itself.
