Spider-Man: Far From Home, featuring Tom Holland as the titular character, has received a wonderful response at the Indian box office. The film opened at Rs 10 crore on Thursday, and continued to show an upward trend during the weekend.

According to a report in Box Office India, the Marvel superhero film recorded a 40% growth with collections of around Rs 12 crore on Saturday. This takes its three-day total to over Rs 30 crore.

Directed by Jon Watts, the Marvel film is set in the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame, which ended with the death of Iron Man, essayed by Robert Downey Jr. The Hindustan Times review of the film rated it 3 stars and read, “Spider-Man: Far From Home is basically EuroTrip, but with occasional diversions into superhero movie territory.”

The collections of the film still fall short of the highest Hollywood grosser in India Avengers: Endgame which collected Rs 120.90 crore gross in its first three days. It released a day before Bollywood film Malaal, which marks the debut of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s niece Sharmin Segal and Javed Jaaferi’s son Meezaan. The film opened with a mere Rs 45 lakh on Friday.

It still faces some competition from two other Bollywood films, Article 15 and Kabir Singh, which continue to hold their ground at the box office. Ayushmann Khurrana’s social crime drama has reportedly collected around Rs 36.50 crore in eight days.

Kabir Singh is running in its third week and has collected Rs 226 crore. Updating the box office collections of the film, trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, “#KabirSingh continues its dream run... Is back in form on [third] Sat... Crosses Rs 225 cr...
