The latest superhero offering from Hollywood, Spider-Man: Far From Home, has started its journey at the Indian box office in terrific style. With less than 2000 screens allotted to Tom Holland’s film, one thing is absolutely clear. There’s a great scope of increased number of screens from day two, especially when none of the other simultaneous releases have generated any hype.
In her review of Malaal, News18's Priyanka Sinha Jhan wrote, "Mangesh Hadawale’s direction, unfortunately, lacks the finesse that we saw in his award-winning Marathi film Tingya. He makes the proceedings borderline clichés, never letting them explore their true potential."
