Box office: Pakistani film Waar beats Akshay Kumar’s Boss!

The anti-India film earned Rs 40 million in three days in Pakistan, setting a record for the highest collections

Pakistani bilingual film Waar has created a record by earning Rs 40 million in three days during the Eid festival. The Shaan starrer action-thriller is said to have the highest box office collection till date.

Akshay Kumar-starrer Bollywood film Boss, according to the entertainment circles, played second fiddle to Waar, by earning Rs 10 million only, reported the Dawn newspaper.

It was perhaps the first Eid after many years when a Pakistani movie was having packed three shows. In certain cinemas, even the fourth show – from 3am to 6am – was dedicated to Waar.

The movie has been released with 35 prints across the country. Written by Hasan Waqas Rana, it is the directorial debut of Bilal Lashari. The film also stars Shamoon Abbasi, Meesha Shafi and Ayesha Khan.

The war on terrorism in Pakistan and its effects on the world have inspired the storyline, but one can however see a stylised interpretation of it. Some critics found the script not that strong, but the music, cinematography and overall treatment of the film made it a superhit.
