Did Saaho Make Profit? This movie is a big budget project that failed to meet the expectations of its audience. Though it grossed over Rs350 crore worldwide, it only earned over Rs54 million in India. In fact, Prabhas has earned around 150 crores every movie. So, does this movie deserve such a high budget? Read on to find out! And don’t forget to share your opinion about the movie!
Grossed over Rs. 300 crore worldwide
The Hindi version of Saaho showed a drop in collections on Monday and is expected to gross over Rs 14 crore. The film is not performing well at the USA box office. It might have crossed the $2 million mark on its first day. This is the first weekend of the film’s release. Let’s see what the movie’s future holds. Let’s take a look at some of the film’s major achievements.
Saaho has done extremely well in the overseas market and has earned over Rs 400 crore worldwide. According to Ramesh Bala, an entertainment industry tracker, the Hindi version of Saaho has already earned Rs 131 crore in overseas markets. Its box office performance has sparked a controversy in France due to its similarities with the French thriller Largo Winch.
Grossed over Rs. 54 million in India
While Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor’s latest release is garnering mixed reviews, it is minting massive numbers in India. Despite a weak opening, the Hindi version of Saaho has surpassed the Rs 350 crore milestone worldwide in its first weekend. It is Prabhas’ third movie to cross this milestone. While the Hindi version had a slow start on the first weekend, it has surpassed the previous record set by Mahesh Babu’s Maharshi within a week.
While Saaho and Pushpa are the top grossing films of Telugu cinemas, they were not even in the same state. While both movies had strong performances in their respective states, Saaho topped the charts in Central and Karnataka. In the North, Saaho scored better than its Hindi counterpart. In the West, Pushpa’s opening weekend earned the highest, but it has been underperforming in the last two weekends.
Is it a hit or a flop?
Prabhas had a lot riding on Saaho, his Bollywood debut. It was originally set to release on 15th August, but was postponed due to post-production issues. Thankfully, the postponement went in the movie’s favor. While the movie was mediocre, it did have some redeeming features. First off, the art direction, camerawork, and stunt work were all top-notch.
This action-thriller from Sujeeth is based on a French film, starring Prabhas. It is also based on the Agnyaathavaasi movie, which starred Prabhas. The film’s premise centers on a fictional city where mafia dons vie for power after the head of the dynasty dies in an accident. The police department investigates robberies with the help of an undercover cop. The film’s main cast features Prabhas as the undercover cop and Shradha Kapoor as the mafia empire’s heir.
Prabhas earns 150 crores per movie
The rumours that Prabhas earns over Rs 150 crores a movie have a basis in fact. While Prabhas receives Rs 20 crores for the first Baahubali film, he reportedly earns Rs 25 crores for the second. Besides, Prabhas has his own share of the profits from each project. Although Saaho hasn’t managed to catch the attention of the audiences in India, it has been released in Japanese theatres, making it one of the highest grossing Indian films ever.
Prabhas has enjoyed pan-India popularity through the Baahubali franchise. The actor is back to woo audiences once again with his upcoming film, Saaho, which is being made on an enormous budget of Rs 250 to 300 crores. However, the film has not met the expectations of Prabhas fans and failed to perform as expected. While the movie performed well in North India, it tanked in the South. Despite this, Prabhas has said that he took a pay cut of nearly 20%.
Is it a commercial success?
The commercial success of Sujeeth’s new film Saaho is not in doubt. The film has opened to middling reviews, and has already faced a fair share of criticism. French filmmaker Jerome Salle has accused the makers of copying the plot of Largo Winch, and Lisa Ray has alleged plagiarism. Still, despite the controversies, the film is one of the most successful films of the year.
Though the film received mixed reviews from critics, the marketing team did a great job of creating hype and generating anticipation for the movie. The movie was released in four languages, and it screened on 8,500 screens in India. The cast includes Neil Nitin Mukesh, Chunky Pandey, and Jackie Shroff. The film also stars Mahesh Manjrekar, who was last seen in Mandira Bedi. Shradha Kapoor even performs some stunts in the movie.
