Akshay Kumar starrer Gold after a weekend is finally dominating at the box office as on the 5th day the film has crossed the figure of Rs. 71. 30 crores. Well, the film has opened at an impressive Rs 25.25 crore, but on day 2nd the business didn't go well and the film earned only Rs. 8 crores.
Gold is based on the fictionalized story of the miraculous victory of Indian hockey team at 1948 Olympics. The film also stars Mouni Roy, Kunal Kapoor, Vineet Kumar Singh, Amit Sadh and Sunny Kaushal. Reema Kagti directed the film who is famous for the work like Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd and Talaash.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted about the collection of Day 5, "#Gold has an EXCELLENT *extended* opening weekend... Took a dip on Day 2, but gradually picked up from Day 3 to Day 5... All eyes on Mon-Thu biz... Wed 25.25 cr, Thu 8.10 cr, Fri 10.10 cr, Sat 12.30 cr, Sun 15.55 cr. Total: ₹ 71.30 cr. India biz."
On the other hand, he also spoke about the film and competition and wrote, "Guess which Indian film has proven a tough opponent to #Gold and #SatyamevaJayate in Australia? Telugu film #GeethaGovindam, starring Vijay Deverakonda... The *combined* weekend biz of the two Hindi films [A$ 192,306] is less than that of #GeethaGovindam [A$ 202,266]. @comScore."
Film critic Shubhra Gupta wrote, “The period is done beautifully, and despite the predictable sports film tropes–underdogs coming up top, conflicts being resolved, last minute fortune reversals—the younger players keep up the tempo, with debutant Sunny Kaushal doing a stand-out job. It’s not as if Akshay isn’t fully there. He immerses himself in his role, playing the sad sack when things go awry, fooling his wife for some monetary handouts, falling about drunkenly after his alcoholic bouts, always redeeming himself by keeping his love of the sport squarely in the center. But all this takes up much too much screen time, and takes the crucial focus away from the game and the players.”
