Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared on Twitter, "PATHAAN’: ₹ 106 CR *GROSS* ON DAY 1 WORLDWIDE… #Pathaan demolishes #Worldwide opening day records for #Hindi films… #India + #Overseas *Gross* BOC on *Day 1* is ₹ 106 cr. PHENOMENAL." He went on to add that Pathaan had a great opening overseas as it has become the highest opener in Hindi cinema.
He added, "‘PATHAAN’ TAKES FABULOUS START OVERSEAS… *Day 1*… #Pathaan registers BIGGEST OPENING DAY for a #Hindi film #Overseas…#UAE + #GCC: $ 1.60 mn, #USA + #Canada: $ 1.50 mn, #UK & Europe: $ 650k, ROW: $ 750k, Total: $ 4.50 mn [ ₹ 36.69 cr]."
In North America, the action film has made over $1.5 million and the numbers in the Gulf also match those in the US and Canada combined. The Hindi film has easily crossed ₹100 crore in its first day itself. It remains to be seen how many more records Pathaan can break going into the extended holiday weekend with the Republic Day holiday as well.
The Hindustan Times review of the film stated, "Pathaan is your true-blue commercial, masala entertainer that's not trying to send across any message or be a social commentary on the current state of affairs in the country. It's fun, non-fussy and fantastic at the same time. Go watch it for Shah Rukh Khan and you would only come back with a smile, and maybe grooving a bit. Don't miss the scene just before end credits for it's not everyday you see two superstars in a banter about their stardom."
The action film, directed by Siddharth Anand, also stars Deepika Padukone, John Abraham as the antagonist, Dimple Kapadia as Pathaan's boss and Ashutosh Rana. Pathaan, which features music by Vishal–Shekhar, has been written by Shridhar Raghavan and Abbas Tyrewala.
