Mission Mangal, which has him in the role of ISRO researcher, hit the screens on August 15. Furthermore, similar to all his past Independence Day releases, Mission Mangal has a grand opening. Every year, Akshay Kumar fans wait curiously for their favorite actor’s film. What’s more, this year, he has come back to the big screen with another moving story. Mission Mangal, which depends on India’s Mangalyaan or Mars Orbiter Mission, has hit the correct harmony with the group of audience.
Mission Mangal box office collection Worldwide Day 1
Mission Mangal has made Rs 29.16 crore on its opening day, in this way getting to be Akshay Kumar’s greatest opener up until this point. Released in around 3000 screens across India, Mission Mangal has figured out how to get an awesome opening.
Akshay has constantly struck gold on Independence Day. If his 2017 film Toilet Ek Prem Katha opened at Rs 13.1 crore, Akshay’s last Independence Day release Gold made an astounding Rs 25.25 on its opening day.
Curiously, this year Akshay Kumar has come back to the 70 mm with a multitude of heroines. Jagan Shakti’s directorial venture also stars Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Nithya Menen in lead roles. The film got good reviews from the audience and film critics.
“But that is IMPOSSIBLE— This is a recurring line throughout Mission Mangal, and practically every character says it emphatically with an air of despair. But you forget, when you have Akshay Kumar around with a very fiercely determined Vidya Balan, how is anything impossible? And so, that’s what Mission Mangal is all about, achieving the unthinkable,” a critic from a popular news sourse wrote in her review.
She added, “Despite its flaws of excessive sermons and some crucial characters like Taapsee and Kirti not fleshed out completely, Mission Mangal makes for an entertaining Independence Day watch. That seems to be how the director intended it as well, a space-entertainer, rather than a hardcore scientific film. The flight might face some turbulence but it lands well.”
In any case, Mission Mangal isn’t the big release this Independence Day. Akshay has by and by locked horns with John Abraham at the ticket windows. Batla House, featuring John, likewise made it to the huge screens on August 15. However, the film failed to beat Mission Mangal in the box office.
