However, critics have called Saaho "an over-indulgent, over-stylised film in which looks have been prioritised over substance, swagger over script."

Here are Saaho's latest box office figures.

Trade analysts further wrote that negative reviews have not affected the film's performance. Positive word-of-mouth has attracted audience to cinemas.

Here is a comparison of how Baahubali, its sequel and Saaho have performed at the box office.

Saaho is Kapoor's first Telugu language film, while it is Prabhas' first film after the Baahubali franchise.

The film has also been released in Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam, and also stars a bevy of Bollywood actors like Jackie Shroff, Chunky Panday, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mahesh Manjrekar, and Mandira Bedi, who all play the antagonists. Other actors in the cast include Arun Vijay, Murli Sharma, Tinnu Anand, Evelyn Sharma, Sharath Lohitashwa, and Lal Vennela Kishore.
