It looks good based on the trailer and certainly mounted on a huge scale but I also feel it's going to be low on substance and story like the director's other films. Not a single good dialogue in the trailer either which isn't a good sign.
This looks glossy & will do some decent business at BO. But some of the fans are swooning over the trailer as if they've discovered a holy grail of action film while all that it is, is a rehash of Mission Impossible & Fast and Furious films with some loud jarring background score. Why would anyone want to watch Videshi style action film simply because it is "Made in India"?
War showed a solid upturn on Saturday as it went up 30% to collect 27.50 crore nett. Despite the big numbers till now it was crucial that the film showed good growth on Saturday. The total so far is a huge 122.50 crore nett and 150 crore should be easily crossed over the the first five days. It could even cross 155 crore nett and that total would make it the fifth highest grosser of the year in just five days.
The bigger circuits all showed growth of around 40% while it was less in the Eastern and Central India markets. The collections in Nizam / Andhra are very good considering it released against a big Telegu film. The apprx collections of the War are as follows.
War Box Office Collection Day 6: Hrithik, Tiger's film is a blockbuster -- both in India and overseas

War Box Office Collection: Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff's War is not only a blockbuster at the domestic box office but it has also shattered many records at the international level. While the film has raked in over Rs 166.25 crore in just five days in India, it has also emerged as the highest opening weekend grosser of 2019 overseas. In its opening weekend, the film earned over Rs 50 crore in the overseas market, with UAE and other Gulf countries being the highest contributors to its earning. Overall, the film has done a box office business of over Rs 200 crore already. In just five days, War has also crossed the lifetime business of Kesari, Total Dhamaal, Saaho [Hindi version], Chhichhore, Super30 and Gully Boy.
Released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi on October 2 (Gandhi Jayanti), film War has shattered several other records. The film has recorded the highest Sunday collections of 2019, surpassing the Hindi version of blockbuster film Saaho (Rs 29.48 crore). War's Sunday (Day 5) collection saw a 30 per cent leap from Saturday's collection and collected nearly Rs 36 crore, reports Boxofficeindia.
Glance at War's box office collections:
Day 1: Wednesday 51.60 crore Day 2: Thursday Rs 23.10 crore Day 3: Friday Rs 21.30 crore Day 4: Saturday Rs 27.60 crore Day 5: Sunday Rs 36.10 crore Tamil + Telugu collection: Rs 6.55 crore Total collection: Rs 166.25 crore
Trade analyst and film critic Taran Adrash said in the upcoming week, War could easily do Rs 200 crore worth of box office business in India alone, owing to Dusshera holiday and festival time. He said that War could also defeat Salman Khan's Bharat in terms of the opening weekend collections by a significant margin; Bharat was also released on an extended weekend on June 5 (Eid holiday).
Helmed by Siddarth Anand, War is the fifth film of Yash Raj production house to cross the Rs 100 crore mark within first-three days of release, followed by Dhoom 3, Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. Considering its earnings, War can easily be assumed a hit. It could also be the highest grosser of both the actors in the days to come. Hrithik Roshan's highest earner is Krrish 3, which made a lifetime collection of Rs 175 crore, while Tiger Shroff's biggest hit is Baaghi 2 with a box office collection of Rs 160 crore.
War is the highest opening day grosser of both Roshan and Shroff's career. Released on Gandhi Jayanti in 4,000 screens in India, film War has also become the biggest opener on a national holiday in India. War, which carries a price tag of nearly Rs 200 crore, is the first Bollywood cinema to be shot in the Arctic Circle. The film also stars Ashutosh Rana and Vaani Kapoor in significant roles.
War held on well on day eight with excellent collections of 11 crore nett though the film seems to still have some holiday benefit as collections in South and Central India held up very strongly while there was a bigger drop in other parts. There could be a lag of the holiday season in some centres.
The collections of the film are a huge 217 crore nett plus in eight days and it will be a huge extended week number though the exact number will depend on how much it gets on Thursday. The next two days should see the film settle at a level as all the centres come out of holiday period.
War should emerge the highest grosser of the year and the next dew days will tell how big the film can be. The apprx collections of the War are as follows.

As an artist, it’s always amazing to touch new milestones and create new achievements as it validates the work that we put in but I’m most happy that I have contributed in making our industry grow with War.“
Towing a similar sentiment Tiger Shroff added, “I’m simply overwhelmed. It’s an absolute blessing that our film has been accepted widely and it’s definitely going to be a special one forever because I got to do this with my hero my idol Hrithik Roshan who I aspire to be and who I am inspired by. It is also my first time working with Yash Raj Films Production, Adi Chopra and I have had such a ball working with his production house. Everything was just so smooth sailing and everything was just so professional. I was really really appreciative of the fact that any brief encounter or interaction I had with Adi sir he would always, even though he is somebody so big in the industry and I am somebody so new starting out here, listen and hear my opinions out. I found that to be something that I felt really touched about the fact that he could listen to somebody who is so junior to him in the industry. And as for Siddharth Sir he is such a clear cut sharp director, wherever he puts the camera he makes it look enhanced amazing and beautiful, everything is a spectacle whenever he is behind the camera, other than that I couldn’t be more grateful to him cause he held my hand throughout this journey and more than a director he is also my friend now so I am blessed to have this opportunity.

His Super 30, which released on July 12, was also a big hit box office and earned Rs 146.94 crore. With two back-to-back hits, the 45-year-old actor said he feels encouraged as an artist and aims to do better work.
In terms of worldwide collection, War has minted Rs 307.78 crore, including Rs 216.65 crore in India. With this, War has become the fifth Hindi film to collect Rs 200 crore in a week after Sultan, Baahubali 2- The Conclusion, Tiger Zinda Hai and Sanju.

War sustained box office competition with Chiranjeevi's Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and Hollywood biggie Joker - all three films released on October 2. However, this week's big release The Sky Is Pink may dampen the progress of War by a few shades.

The Sky Is Pink is based on the real life story of motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary, whose life was cut short due to pulmonary fibrosis.

War is likely to overtake the collections of Vicky Kaushal's Uri: The Surgical Strike and Shahid Kapoor's Kabir Singh within a matter of days.

War went up a huge 55% on its second Saturday as it collected 10.75-11 crore nett. The growth of the film was almost similar to the likes of The Sky Is Pink and Joker despite still playing in over 3000 screens and a wide single screen release where the collections dont grow much on Saturday..
