As expected, Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Saaho has taken a record-breaking start at the ticket windows. Talking about the Hindi version it has garnered around 50 per cent occupancy, while the Tamil version in down south has taken the occupancy of around 70 per cent. And the occupancy of its original Telugu version is insane as it is around 90 to 95 per cent in the markets of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. With this kind of response, we are sure that the film will have a huge first day at the ticket windows.
Made on the massive budget of Rs 350 crore, Saaho is directed by Sujeeth, who previously helmed Run Bhola Run. It is produced under the banner of UV Creations and also features Mahesh Manjrekar, Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Arun Vijay, Chunky Panday and Murli Sharma in key roles.
Since the film has received negative reviews from the critics, it will be interesting to see how it performs in the evening shows. Our critic, Urmimala Banerjee has given the film 2.5 stars and wrote, "Saaho deserves a watch for its scale, action and leading man Prabhas. The Baahubali actor proves he is unbeatable when it comes to onscreen swag. It is disappointing that he is let down by some lazy writing and editing." She praised Prabhas' performance and wrote, "Prabhas powers the film in every frame. His charm grows on you scene by scene. He makes even the bland lines sound good. And he looks hot as hell in some scenes."
