Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil was supposed to do brisk business yesterday and it did just that. Being a working Friday, numbers aren’t as as historic as it was yesterday given the fact that it was a holiday. But they are pretty good. Kaabil has added another Rs. 9.77 crore to its kitty to take the total to Rs. 38. 87 crore.

We told you yesterday that trade was hopeful that despite a working day, both Raees and Kaabil will see good collections at the box office. The fact that both of them have good word of mouth is actually helping the films earn well. But you have to remember that Kaabil has opened in much fewer screens than Raees and despite all that the film is earning superbly well at the box office. Much of it has to do with the positive feedback that the film has earned upon release. Nearly every critic has praised the film which is simply amazing. Hrithik Roshan’s performance of a blind guy has won many hearts and how. Bollywoodlife’s editor-in-chief Tushar Joshi said, “Hrithik Roshan takes his biggest career risk with Kaabil. For an actor whose name is synonymous with good looks, vanity and superstardom, to play a simple ordinary guy who isn’t bothered by the way he looks on screen or how many packs he has hidden behind his shirt, for him Kaabil is a huge risk. Does it pay off ? Yes, by leaps and bounds. Kaabil works simply because Hrithik takes it to another level. His honesty and openness in letting us get a glimpse of Rohan’s world is endearing. Right from the opening frame where we watch Rohan make breakfast to the very last scene you are spellbound by Hrithik’s craft.”
