After a slow start in morning shows [North India opening was good due to Diljit Dosanjh’s stardom], #Soorma gathered momentum from evening onwards... Is looking at substantial growth on Sat and Sun thanks to strong word of mouth... Fri ₹ 3.25 cr. India biz.

Firstpost's Anna Vetticad has said, "Before the break, the scenes of their training are convincing and the matches Sunny plays, thanks to Chirantan Das' clever camerawork and Farooq Hundekar’s keen editing, are utterly gripping. As someone who does not care a fig about most sport, I found myself cheering each time Sunny scored a goal and willing him to win."
Soorma, which means warrior, is based on the real life story of hockey skipper and Arjuna awardee Sandeep Singh, whose rise to the international hockey circuit is interrupted by an accident but whose grit and determination help him to recover from a potentially career-ending injury, Vetticad writes.
