Like other recent films of Akshay Kumar, Kesari has started strong at the box-office window, clinching the top spot as the biggest opener of 2019, reportedly. It is also Akshay's second biggest opening film after Gold (says Taran Adarsh). The theatre receipts of Kesari have been bolstered by positive reviews from the critics, who are praising it for strong performances, cinematography and slick action sequences. Kesari has opened on a total of 4,200 screens (3,600 domestic and 600 overseas), informs film critic and trade analyst, Taran.

Film critic Rajeev Masand wrote about Kesari, "What works is the bond between the men, especially Singh’s empathy for the youngest soldier, a 19-year-old who freezes when he faces armed conflict for the first time. There is an overall sincerity in the enterprise, and some genuine skill on display. The camerawork is particularly impressive."
Kesari is expected to do really well over the weekend since there is not much competition from major films. Only Vasan Bala's Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota is opposing Kesari's victory run at the box office as of now.
