Kangana Ranaut’s latest film, Panga, hit the screens on Friday, 24th January. The film opened with a collection of INR 2.7 crore. Reporting on the box office figures, film trade analyst, Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, “#Panga records a low total on Day 1… Gathered momentum towards evening shows at select multiplexes, but occupancy at multiplexes of Tier-2 and 3 cities remained dull… Strong word of mouth should ensure growth on Day 2 and 3… Fri ₹ 2.70 cr. #India biz.”
Panga, directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, was released on 1450 screens in India and on 450 screens overseas, i.e., a total of 1,900 screens worldwide. It is clashing at the box office with Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor’s Street Dancer 3D, which is playing on 4,370 screens worldwide.
Panga also stars Jassie Gill and Richa Chadha in lead roles. In the film, Kangana is essaying the role of a 32-year-old kabadi player who tries to make a comeback into the sport.
The film may pick up at the ticket windows as it has received many good reviews from critics. Nairita Mukherjee, in her review of the movie for India Today, wrote, “A bit of willing suspension of disbelief, a lot of that feel-good factor that comes from watching an underdog win, Panga delivers the highs wonderfully. You walk out of the theatre feeling satiated, happy, not because of the extra butter on the popcorn.”
Reviewer Ambica Sachin wrote in the Khaleej Times, “Panga is an endearing and inspiring tale of a woman’s attempt to reclaim her identity in a world that is content to relegate her as simply a wife and a mother. And for most women clearly that’s not enough. Watch Panga if you enjoy slice-of-life movies with a dash of everyday humour thrown in.”
