Hrithik Roshan's Warrior It has had its fair share of ups and downs at the box office.

The report states that overall the film has collected Rs 187.40 crore. Released on 25 January Warrior It stars Hrithik Roshan as Squadron Leader Shamsher Pathania (aka Patty) and Deepika Padukone as Squadron Leader Minal Rathod (aka Mini). The cast includes Anil Kapoor as Group Captain Rakesh Jai Singh, Karan Singh Grover as Sartaj Gill and Akshay Oberoi as Bashir Khan.
In a recent interview with Galata Plus, WarriorDirector Siddharth Anand sheds light on why the film failed to meet expectations at the box office. He said, “Warrior That's a huge leap. As filmmakers in the country do it and the kind of genre it is. It is a place that is unknown and completely new. There's no reference point for the audience, which means what they're seeing is a bit… well… so many big stars, a commercial director, ok what is this plane doing [what are these planes doing?] I feel like if this is my film, I don't know.”
In a review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee gave Warrior 2.5 stars and wrote, “Warrior is a competently mounted, shot and edited film. He'll probably find the fans he's looking for. However, despite Deepika Padukone adding a dash of star power, the film feels empty and dull. The problem lies with its story – it's a collection of clichés. Above all it is based on the blatant lie that offense is always the best form of defense, and the best response to betrayal is immediate revenge. he finds out Warrior “Bollywood war films are firmly entrenched in the narrow structure in which they operate.”
