Pathanwhich marked Shah Rukh Khan’s comeback after four years, collected a record-breaking Rs 55 crore at the Indian box office on its first day of release, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh. Pathan is now the “biggest opener” in Hindi cinema. Pathan‘s opening day collection goes beyond the Hindi dubbing of KGF: Chapter 2. The film, starring Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in lead roles, is pushing War and Criminals of Hindustan down from their previous positions of second and third behind KGF: Chapter 2.

Taran Adarsh ​​tweeted: “PATHANMAKES HISTORY, GREATEST DAY 1 TOTAL. Pathan is now BIGGEST OPENER [Hindi films] in India. *Day 1* biz… Pathaan: Rs 55 cr [Non-holiday] KGF2 #Hindi: Rs 53.95 cr War: Rs 51.60 cr TOH: Rs 50.75 cr Nett BOC. India bis.”

Aided by Siddharth Anand and produced by Yash Raj Films, the film broke advance booking records. Pathan registered the second highest pre-release ticket sales for day 1 – 5.5 lakh. Only KGF 2‘s Hindi dub sold more advance bookings.

Pathan, which was released yesterday (Jan. 25), witnessed massive audiences in theaters for early morning shows. Across India, the fans were spotted celebrating the release by bursting crackers and dancing to the dhol beats. Check out the videos from Mumbai and Kolkata below:

Saibal Chatterjee wrote in his review for NDTV, “The most striking aspect of Pathan, a masala entertainer at heart, is that it has the guts to push beyond the parameters of a mass film and produce sharp, insightful moments that serve as commentary on pressing issues of the day. It is much more about humanity than superficial patriotism, which, coming at a time when Mumbai’s film industry thrives on the other and demonizing communities to advance a dominant political narrative, is an act of courage that should be celebrated .”
