21 October 2023, Mumbai: Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon’s much-anticipated action film, Ganapath, had a somewhat underwhelming start at the Indian box office on its opening day. According to early estimates, the film managed to collect ₹2.5 crore in India on its first day. Ganapath, which also features the legendary Amitabh Bachchan, was in competition with Divya Khosla Kumar’s Yaariyan 2 but managed to fare better in terms of earnings.

Modest Occupancy on the Opening Day

Despite the buzz surrounding Ganapath, it recorded a relatively low occupancy rate of 9.72 percent for Hindi shows on Friday. This suggests that the film did not draw large crowds to theaters on its debut. The film is directed by Vikas Bahl and co-produced by Jackky Bhagnani, and it’s set in a futuristic world with elements of action and drama.

Ganapath’s Unique Plot and Cast

Ganapath stars Tiger Shroff in the lead role, portraying an “immortal” mercenary. Amitabh Bachchan appears as his grandfather in a story that combines elements of action and fantasy. Kriti Sanon also features prominently in the film, showcasing her action skills in several sequences. The intriguing plot and star-studded cast had generated significant anticipation among audiences.

Critical Reception for Ganapath

However, Ganapath received mixed to negative reviews from film critics. The Hindustan Times review described the film’s premise as “silly” and disjointed, with action sequences and dance numbers seemingly strung together without a cohesive narrative. The film’s futuristic theme, while unique, was criticized for lacking depth and clarity.

Tiger Shroff’s Perspective on Action in Ganapath

Tiger Shroff, who is widely recognized as a dynamic action hero, acknowledged that reinventing himself in the action genre with each new film has become increasingly challenging. He mentioned during a promotional event that it’s tough to continuously raise the bar when the stakes in terms of the film’s scope, budget, and landscape keep getting higher. Nevertheless, Tiger expressed his desire to entertain and push himself further with each project, acknowledging the audience’s expectations for action-packed performances. He emphasized his commitment to continually delivering better action sequences and evolving as an action hero in the industry. Tiger’s dedication to his craft remains unwavering, and he seeks to delight his fans with every new film.

Despite a modest start at the box office and mixed critical reviews, Ganapath still holds the potential to pick up momentum over the coming days. As Tiger Shroff continues to reinvent himself in the action genre, audiences can look forward to more captivating performances and thrilling action sequences in his future projects.
