Kesari Box-Office Collection, Day 1: Akshay Kumar’s Battalion Fires The Right Ammunition At Ticket Windows
Akshay Kumar presented his fans a war film on Holi. Kesari hit theatres yesterday and the good news is that it opened to ticket windows with a great figure. According to Box Office India, the film has made Rs 21-22 crore on Day 1. A lot of it can also be attributed to it being a festival day and a holiday opening.

The Akshay Kumar-Parineeti Chopra starrer, is based on the Battle Of Saragarhi, and showcases the unmatchable valour of the Sikh soldiers, as they fought 10000 Afghans in 1897, under the British Indian army. The movie has been getting good response from masses and critics alike. Editor, Vickey Lalwani was all praise for the film. He wrote, “Kesari is a good watch, shot well, enacted well by even others apart from Akshay- but I wish that the dialogues were stronger, the music was better and Parineeti Chopra had a longer and meatier role than some of the heroines in JP Dutta's Border had. The camerawork is good especially in the climax when Akshay cuts the Afghanis into pieces. Magnificent spectacle, book your ticket for the weekend. The virtues outweigh the flaws,”

“Once he dons saffron on his head, Akshay undergoes a major transformation in his body language and sometimes you feel that the 21 soldiers are a one-man army, Khiladi Kumar is so convincing in his role! His dialogue delivery is his usual one and yet gives ample justice to his character. His eye-contact with Afghanis spews rage. His concern for his men in uniform looks genuine and his message that war is futile is very subtle but still stark, this diametrically opposite output of Kumar takes the cake.” he further praised Akshay Kumar and his impeccable acting skills in the film. 

Well, Kesari has a long weekend to mint more bucks. Keep reading this space as we bring to you updates on its box-office figures.
