Despite garnering good reviews, Kangana Ranaut's Panga had a slow start on Friday, thus earning an estimated total of Rs 2.5 crores at the ticketing counters, as per Box Office reports. Varun Dhawan & Shraddha Kapoor's dance drama made an impressive opening by minting a total of Rs 11 crores on opening day.
Made on a budget of Rs 25 crores, Kangana Ranaut's Panga is said to make a total of around Rs. 4 crores which is lower than the actress' previous stint, Judgementall Hai Kya. A Box Office India report suggested that even if the film mints a double on Saturday, it would still struggle. Meanwhile, Street Dancer 3D made on a massive budget of Rs 95 crores is said to be doing extremely well in the Mumbai circuit.
Kangana Ranaut's Panga & Varun Dhawan's Street Dancer 3 although clashing at the ticketing counters seem to be entertaining the audiences. Given the ratings by well-know trade analyst & film critic, Taran Adarsh, it is safe to say that viewers should definitely catch the entertaining storylines. Describing it as a 'content-driven film that is rich in merits', Taran Adarsh gave Kangana's Ranaut's sports drama a 3.5 rating out of 5. Dishing praise on Kangana and calling her performance an 'award-worthy act', the well-known film critic pegged the Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari directorial as one of her 'best works'.
Giving a one-word review on Varun Dhawan's Street Dancer 3D, Taran Adarsh described it as a film that 'will dance its way into your hearts'. Praising director Remo D'Souza, Adarsh claimed that he has aced choreography, drama, music, and emotions thus delivering yet another Box Office winner.
Meanwhile, social media users and fans too have given both the films a thumbs-up. While one netizen called the sports & dance drama great, another one just dished praise on the Varun Dhawan starrer pegging it as an 'entertaining watch'.
