Pakistani film Waar earns Rs 40 million in 3 days, sets record
Islamabad: Pakistani bilingual film Waar has created a record by earning Rs 40 million in three days during 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 3 am to 6 am - 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.
Some critics found the script not that strong, but the music, cinematography and overall treatment of the film made it a super hit.
Following a dreadful washout in the four-State Assembly polls, a humbled Congress accepted its defeat and called for a much needed introspection to rethink their strategy ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
