‘Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty’ is going strong in the second week of its release.
Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha starrer ‘Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty’, is going strong in the second week of its release. The film that swiftly claimed good revenue in the first week, has collected more than Rs 70 crore in the second week of its release.
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh gave the official figure: “#Holiday [Week 2] Fri 4.34 cr, Sat 6.06 cr. Grand total: ₹ 79.09 cr nett. India biz. Marching towards ₹ 100 cr.”
The film, directed by AR Murgadoss, is the official remake of 2012 Tamil film Thuppakki, also directed by Murgadoss.
The film had a strong start despite less favourable reviews. The Indian Express, reviewer Shubhra Gupta said, “‘Holiday’ gives Akshay Kumar a chance to return to full combat mode. Till he’s going bang bang, he’s all right; the moment he gets romancing and joshing, he slides. So does the film.”
Akshay Kumar, faced a dry spell at Box Office last year with ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Again’ and ‘Boss’ – failing miserably.
