Gold, Satyamev Jayate Box-Office, Day 1: Akshay @ Rs 25.2 Cr & John @ Rs 20.5 Cr

This Independence Day witnessed the clash of two big films, Akshay Kumar’s Gold and John Abraham’s Satyamev Jayate at the box-office. The official first day collections are out and according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, both the movies have managed to get a good figure. Talking about Gold, he tweeted, “#Gold has an EXTRAORDINARY Day 1... Takes a FAB START at plexes across major centres... Wed ₹ 25.25 cr. India biz.” For Gold, he wrote, “#SatyamevaJayate springs a BIG SURPRISE... Plexes are good, but single screens are ROCKING... Wed ₹ 20.52 cr. India biz.”

Evidently, both films have managed to strike a chord with the audience.  Editor, Vickey Lalwani, rated the film 3 stars and wrote, “Gold is another film this year from our Bollywood stable which is clean from its first frame till the last. Soorma, Dhadak and Fanney Khan, you have company. Innocence is indeed coming back. Gold, which dwells on the mentor who readied India to win her first gold medal at the 1948 Olympics, races off to a brisk start, slows down in the middle, and then starts galloping after the interval. Gold swells you with pride as you see how Indian players went hammer and tongs on England in the finals simply because the British had ruled over us for 200 years. The long and short of this hockey story is that Gold is good cinema, which could have been better.”

Talking about Satyamev Jayate (rated 3 stars), he wrote, “Satyamev Jayate springs a few surprises and manages to hold you till the end. Alongside you can also play a game of decoding the names of areas in Mumbai that start with S, A, T and Y till the interval before the narrative becomes a one-on-one direct clash between the law-breaker (John Abraham) and the honest cop (Manoj Bajpayee). Thank God for that, but see the irony- the film's editor gets up at this very point and makes an exit! The second half should have been crisper.” Let’s wait and watch to see how do both films fare on Day 2.
