In its debut at the box office, “Ganapath,” the much-anticipated action film starring Tiger Shroff, Kriti Sanon, and Amitabh Bachchan, saw a relatively modest reception on its opening day. According to preliminary estimates reported by Sacnilk.com, the film managed to amass ₹2.50 crore in India on its first day, despite its release alongside Divya Khosla Kumar’s “Yaariyan 2.”
The occupancy rate for “Ganapath” on Friday stood at 9.72 percent for Hindi showings, indicating a lukewarm initial response to the movie. Directed by Vikas Bahl and co-produced by Jackky Bhagnani, the film features Tiger Shroff in the lead role as an “immortal” mercenary in a futuristic setting, with Amitabh Bachchan portraying his grandfather. Kriti Sanon also engages in high-octane action sequences in the movie.
Critics, however, had mixed to negative views on the film. The Hindustan Times review critiqued “Ganapath” for its somewhat convoluted premise, describing it as a mishmash of fight scenes and dance numbers with no coherent narrative direction.
Tiger Shroff, who is known for his prowess in action films, acknowledged the challenges of reinventing himself as an action hero with each project. During a promotional event, he expressed his commitment to continuously raising the bar in terms of action sequences and entertainment. He mentioned the growing complexity and expectations associated with his roles and his desire to explore new dimensions within the action genre.
Tiger Shroff’s dedication to evolving his craft and delivering high-quality entertainment has endeared him to audiences as an action hero. With “Ganapath,” he aims to further solidify his position in the genre by pushing his limits and offering viewers a thrilling cinematic experience.
