Surprising! But this is true. Ajay Devgan starrer Raid has crossed ₹ 41 crores on the weekend, which made it the second highest weekend grosser of 2018 after Padmavat. Although, its start was not very terrific and did a below average business on Friday; however, with the strong word of mouth it managed to pull the audience to theaters. Even with the low start, it became the 3rd highest grosser of the opening day in 2018 after Padmavat and Padman.
Reasons like being similar to Akshay starer Special 26, featuring no-hit number, and not a very clicking story, at least, as reflected in its trailer. On the other hand, its gripping story, some exceptional performances, and the way it has been presented favored it in terms of attracting the audience. Special mention should be made here for Ritesh Sha’s crisp story and screenplay and the charge of direction handled very well by Rajkumar Gupta. This is the reason it showed a wonderful growth of 38.04% after having mediocre Friday with only 10.04 Cr business. With the spread of strong public report, the footfall starts getting higher and closed the day with 13.86 Cr. Raid continued the success story with earning 17.11 Cr on Sunday.
