Action movie lovers got their weekend dose of thrill with Vidyut Jammwal and Adah Sharma's Commando 3 hitting screens this Friday. The third installment in the action franchise took lead at the box office as it locked horns with Dev Patel and Anupam Kher-starrer Hotel Mumbai.

While Vidyut's Commnado 3 earned Rs 4.74 crore on its opening day, Hotel Mumbai had a slow start, opening at Rs 1.08 crore here. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the figures on Twitter and informed that Commando 3 gathered momentum post evening shows, after a dull start in the morning. Check out his tweets below:

Both Commando 3 and Hotel Mumbai are quite different in style and approach. While the former is an out and out actioner, the latter takes inspiration from the ghastly terror attacks of Mumbai in 2008.

"Commando 3's biggest virtue is that while drumming up the patriotic bluster it does try its best to make a distinction between terrorists and Muslims as it were," wrote Priyanka Sinha Jha in her review for News18.

Meanwhile, "Hotel Mumbai isn’t cheap or exploitative in its recreation of the tragedy. Yet it never goes beyond the obvious," says News18's Rajeev Masand in his review of the film.
