“Pathaan,” starring Shah Rukh Khan, is a box office smash hit. The movie is doing very well in every territory it has been released in. Not only did the film break records in North America, but it also surpassed Rs 200 crore nett in domestic box office earnings.
Last year, Rajamouli’s “RRR” made $2.42 million on its first Saturday. On its first Saturday in the USA theatres, “Pathaan” made $2.85 million. The opening weekend of the film is expected to earn over $8 million in North America.
With this massive success, Shah Rukh Khan is back on track. It’s been almost five years since we’ve seen the star in a movie. ‘Pathaan’ is his first film as a hero since “Zero” in 2018, following a period of personal and professional crisis.
In films such as “Rocketry,” “Laal Singh Chaddha,” and “Brahmastra,” however, he only had cameo roles.
“Pathaan” was made available in Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil. Siddharth Anand’s action drama is entertaining but lacks substance in terms of its story and content.
