Sarkar box office collection Day 8: The Vijay starrer is a force to reckon with at the box office.

Vijays Sarkar is proving to be unstoppable at the box office. Not just in India, the movie has been raking in the moolah in the international market as well. It has already proved its dominance in countries such as UK, Australia and New Zealand. The movie has crossed the Rs 200 crore mark worldwide.

Sarkar earned a whopping Rs 30 crore on the opening day of its release. The film, despite its incredible success at the box office, received mixed reviews from critics. The Indian Express film critic S Subhakeerthana felt that the movie failed in the storytelling department.

“If Sarkar was a political launchpad for Vijay, then you could say, he won. But unfortunately, this is a film. Those slow-mos, action blocks and stylish-tossing-cigarette-moments doesnt help if you see the film as a whole. Vijays terrific screen presence makes this underwritten saga somewhat bearable. But that doesnt mean one would enjoy everything in a star-driven film. For instance, the Governor suddenly responds to the Chief Justices phone call during a swearing-in ceremony. No, Im not kidding…Sarkar belongs to Vijay, but not AR Murugadoss. Its tailor-made for Thalapathy who speaks of farmer suicides, Jallikattu, Tuticorin protests, the fishermens issue, marketing and branding and how with the support of youngsters, he can save Tamil Nadu,” a section of her review read.

Releasing the film during the festive season has also helped Sarkar with its jaw-dropping figures at the box office. Now only time will tell if the Vijay starrer continues with its winning streak.
