John Abraham-starrer Satyameva Jayate managed to do wonders at the box office despite its clash with Gold starring Akshay Kumar. The movie, directed by Milap Milan Zaveri, released on Independence Day this year along with Reema Kagti’s sports drama. It was touted to be one of the biggest clashes of 2018. However, the clash didn’t hamper the business for either of two. While Akshay Kumar’s film is inching towards the 100-crore mark, Satyameva Jayate has successfully crossed the 50-crore mark on Monday. The cop-drama got mixed response from the film critics across the country however, most of them were praising John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee’s towering performances in the film. On day 7, let’s see how Satyameva Jayate fared in its six days of run in the theatres.

Satyameva Jayate Movie Review
India TV rates Satyameva Jayate 2.5 out of five. Our film critic writes, “From bribery to fake gallantry medals, the film talks about all. It hits right at the point when it refers to the Khaki colour as the new colour of fear and bias and didn’t shy away from raising fingers at the existent flaws in our system. The film packs many punches like ‘Gareeb insaan kachre ki tarah hote hain aur kachre ko insaaf nahi milta.’, ‘note badle neeyat nahi’ lampooning the fraudulent ways of the police. The eternal chase between Veer and Shivansh keep you at the edge of your seat. The film is full of anger and frustration and you will feel the same while watching it. It’s not a happy film for even fraction of a second, and so, it’s the utmost real.”
