Adipurush Box Office Collection Day 1: Prabhas’ Mythological Epic Rakes in Massive Opening Despite Mixed Reviews

The highly anticipated film Adipurush, directed by Om Raut and starring Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, and Saif Ali Khan, made a grand entry at the box office on its first day. This retelling of the Ramayana saga, which opened in theaters across India on Friday, witnessed an overwhelming response from the audience, despite receiving a mixed bag of reviews.

The theaters were abuzz with heightened emotions as large crowds flocked to witness Prabhas and Kriti Sanon’s much-discussed portrayal of Raghav and Janaki respectively. Interestingly, in many theaters, a seat was specially reserved for Lord Hanuman, adding a touch of devotion to the cinematic experience.

Adipurush released in 5 languages – Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada – and early estimates for Day 1 indicate a thunderous opening, defying the middling reviews. The film’s promotional campaign, which was launched on a massive scale, undoubtedly contributed to its impressive start. With a reported budget of Rs 500 crore, Adipurush is poised to make a significant impact on the box office.

Early estimates suggest that the Hindi version alone is expected to collect around Rs 36-38 crore, while the film’s all-India collection across languages is projected to reach Rs 90 crore on the first day. This makes Adipurush the third highest-opening Hindi film post-pandemic, following the releases of Pathaan and KGF 2.

Considering the Telugu version’s collections in Hindi circuits and the rest of South India, Adipurush’s total net collection on the first day is estimated to be around Rs 90 crore in India, with a gross collection of Rs 110-112 crore. Internationally, the film is predicted to achieve a remarkable opening, with an estimated worldwide collection of Rs 140 crore on day one, possibly even surpassing Rs 150 crore.

According to Box Office India, Adipurush has witnessed extraordinary business in all circuits, outperforming Brahmastra, especially in mass centers.

The 2023 Bollywood film Adipurush, featuring Prabhas and Kriti Sanon, is poised for a blockbuster opening. Inspired by the Hindu mythological epic Ramayan, the movie showcases Prabhas as Raghav, Kriti Sanon as Janaki, and Saif Ali Khan as Ravan. Alongside them, Sunny Singh and Devdatta Nage contribute to the stellar supporting cast. The film beautifully captures the virtues of Lord Ram, encompassing Dharma, Courage, and Sacrifice, as reflected in its elegant poster.

Prior to its theatrical release, Adipurush is set to have its world premiere at the 2023 Tribeca Film Festival in New York, adding to the anticipation surrounding the movie. Despite facing multiple postponements and controversies over the past two years, the film has generated immense excitement among audiences and is poised to make a resounding impact at the box office.
