Leading trade analyst Taran Adarsh has already declared the film a hit but said that its Monday numbers will lay out the trend for weekdays. If it continues its strong showing, then it could be a superhit.
In Raazi, Bhatt play Sehmat, an Indian spy who marries the son of an influential Pakistani army officer. After undergoing rigorous training, she starts leaking details of Pakistan's military strategy to Indian agencies.
While Bhatt plays the indomitable Sehmat with conviction, Vicky Kaushal shines as the subdued husband. The film has been appreciated for being its taut screenplay and its handling of human relations and the extent to which they are affected by patriotism, which Bollywood usually struggles to get right.
