Prabhas' action thriller 'Saaho’, didn’t impress any of the critics, as they say, it lacks the basic storyline with a confusing screenplay. Inspite of bad reviews, 'Saaho' has managed to battle the odds and make a mark at the box-office. With Rs 79 crores box office collection in its first weekend, Prabhas' film has managed to overcome Rajinikanth's '2.0' which had collected Rs 61.29 crore in its first weekend.
Even it failed to reach Baahubali-2’s staggering figure of Rs 127.28 crore, this number is very satisfactory for the makers considering the mixed mouth talk which constitutes the bad mostly. Interestingly, Taran Adarsh who rated 1 and a half for 5, tweeted that Saaho’s collections are really fantabulous. Meanwhile, 'Saaho' has even managed to surpass the first weekend collections of Shahid Kapoor starrer 'Kabir Singh which had collected Rs 70.67 crore.
Actually, Prabhas was well received by Hindi audience compared to Telugu people. There haven’t been any drops for the past three days. Grabbing the second spot behind Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif's 'Bharat' which had raked in Rs 90.47 crore, 'Saaho' has succeeded in proving its mantle.
Now, Saaho, starring Shraddha Kapoor opposite Prabhas, also features Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mahesh Manjrekar, Chunky Panday, Arun Vijay, Murali Sharma and Mandira Bedi in important roles need to face an uphill task from Tuesday as the first weekend is over.
