Box Office Projections for ‘Adipurush’ Day 1 Collection, Starring Prabhas and Kriti Sanon

The highly anticipated film ‘Adipurush,’ which garnered mixed reviews from both critics and audiences, has made a remarkable impact at the box office with its phenomenal opening on Friday. Despite the varied reception, early estimates suggest that the film has amassed an impressive collection, particularly in the Hindi version, reaching approximately ₹36-38 crore. Moreover, the all-India collection across languages is estimated to be around ₹90 crore, positioning ‘Adipurush’ as the third highest-grossing Hindi film opening since the COVID-19 pandemic, trailing only ‘Pathaan’ and ‘KGF 2.’

Film ‘Adipurush’ brings together a stellar cast, featuring Prabhas as Raghava, Kriti Sanon as Janaki, and Saif Ali Khan as Ravana. Directed by renowned filmmaker Om Raut, celebrated for his blockbuster ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior,’ the film has generated significant anticipation among audiences. With an impressive ensemble cast and Om Raut’s directorial expertise, ‘Adipurush’ promises to be an enthralling cinematic experience.

‘Adipurush’ Shatters Box Office Estimates: Impressive Day 1 Collections in India and Overseas

‘Adipurush’ has surpassed all expectations with its exceptional box office performance on the opening day. According to a report from Boxofficeindia.com, the film’s collections in India, including the Telugu version in Hindi circuits and other South Indian regions, are estimated to be around ₹90 crore nett, with a gross collection of ₹110-112 crore. Moreover, the report suggests that ‘Adipurush’ is expected to achieve a staggering worldwide day one collection of ₹140 crore, which could potentially reach ₹150 crore once all collections are consolidated. These remarkable figures reflect the massive appeal of the film both domestically and internationally.

Adipurush’ Secures Impressive Box Office Position: Trails ‘Pathaan’ but Surpasses ‘Brahmastra’

Although ‘Adipurush’ showcased impressive box office numbers on its opening day, it fell behind the mammoth success of ‘Pathaan’ and ‘KGF 2’ (Hindi version). ‘Pathaan’ recorded a staggering opening of ₹57 crore in India, establishing its position as one of this year’s biggest blockbusters. Similarly, ‘KGF 2’ (Hindi version) garnered immense attention and achieved an impressive opening of ₹54 crore. While ‘Adipurush’ did not surpass these figures, its performance is noteworthy, considering the fierce competition in the market.

Despite not reaching the heights of ‘Pathaan’ and ‘KGF 2,’ ‘Adipurush’ emerged triumphant by surpassing the opening day collection of last year’s highly anticipated film ‘Brahmastra.’ ‘Brahmastra’ opened with collections of ₹36 crore in India, making ‘Adipurush’ the preferred choice for audiences on its opening day. This accomplishment underlines the film’s appeal and indicates a positive reception from viewers, even in comparison to highly anticipated releases.

‘Adipurush’ Receives Mixed Reviews: A Visual Spectacle with Room for Improvement

‘Adipurush’ is praised for its visually stunning elements, presenting a spectacle that captivates viewers. The film’s visual effects and grandeur contribute to creating an immersive experience for the audience. This aspect showcases the dedication and efforts of the filmmaking team in bringing the epic tale to life on the big screen.

Despite its visual prowess, ‘Adipurush’ has faced criticism for its execution. The film is described as a Bollywood-ised version of an epic tale that is already widely known. The execution is deemed messy, with over-the-top CGI and passable VFX that may not meet the expectations of some viewers. Furthermore, the presence of intentionally funny dialogues, which appear out of place in a sensitive and mythological narrative, raises concerns about the film’s tonal consistency.

Adding an amusing anecdote to the film’s release, an incident occurred in a theater in Telangana where a monkey sneaked into the premises. This unexpected occurrence further highlights the cultural and mythological significance of ‘Adipurush’ and its ability to attract attention and curiosity.


‘Adipurush’ has made a resounding impact at the box office on its opening day, proving its commercial mettle and defying critical skepticism. The film’s robust performance showcases the immense popularity of its lead actors, Prabhas and Kriti Sanon, who deliver exceptional performances that resonate with audiences. Furthermore, ‘Adipurush’ has surpassed the opening day collections of ‘Brahmastra,’ firmly establishing its dominance in the highly competitive film industry. As the film continues its theatrical run, its box office trajectory promises to be an exciting journey, fueled by the star power and captivating storytelling of ‘Adipurush.’
