When it comes to Salman Khan, it does not matter whether the film has a strong story, plot, acting or not, the film is supposed to enter 100/200 Cr club.
Bharat has entered the Rs 200 crore club. The film has earned a total of Rs 201.82 crore till Tuesday. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared, “#Bharat scores a double century at the BO… Crosses ₹ 200 cr mark… Is best in North, although biz has slowed down in other circuits… [Week 2] Fri 4.30 cr, Sat 6.37 cr, Sun 6.19 cr, Mon 2.63 cr, Tue 2.32 cr. Total: ₹ 201.86 cr. India biz.”
“My validation comes from box office collections. That means people have liked or not liked a film. It doesn’t make a difference if someone has given it so many stars (rating), no stars or ridiculed the film. This happens. It’s their bread and butter. God bless them. Give them two more bread,” Salman said in a group interview.
Salman added, “I am very happy with the film doing really really well. Everyone’s work is being appreciated. I have not done these many interviews to promote the film that I am doing now. But it’s okay because all those people who have watched the film and liked it, this is to say a big thank you to them. People, who have gone to watch the film, are doing a good job by talking good about the film and encouraging others to watch it. But if people haven’t watched the film and they are not taking these people seriously, then I, myself, am going to say that go and watch it. It’s a good film,”
In Addition, Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bharat is an official adaptation of 2014 South Korean film, Ode to My Father which chronicles the journey of Bharat played by Salman Khan from an eight-year-old kid to a 70-year-old. The film also features Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani, Sunil Grover, Tabu, Jackie Shroff and Sonali Kulkarni in supporting roles.
Vishal-Shekhar’s music is good but could have been better. ‘Slow Motion’ is the top song of the lot followed by ‘Chashni’. ‘Aithey Aa’ is well choreographed. ‘Zinda’ is exhilarating. ‘Tupreya’, ‘Aaya Na Tu’ and ‘Thap Thap’ are okay. Julius Packiam’s background score is better and exhilarating, especially in the emotional scenes. Vaibhavi Merchant and Adil Shaikh’s choreography is appealing, especially in ‘Slow Motion’ and ‘Aithey Aa’.
Meanwhile, Salman Khan is currently shooting for his next, the third instalment from the Dabangg franchise, Dabangg 3. Sonakshi Sinha and Arbaaz Khan will reprise their roles of Rajjo and Makkhi while Kannada actor Sudeep will be seen as the main antagonist in the film. Dabangg 3 will hit theatres on December 20, 2019.
