The movie is headed towards an extended opening weekend of 163 crores in the International market according to experts. Praising the film, The Wrap’s critic Scott Mendelson tweeted, “#PathaanMovie is spectacular. It’s a terrific, gleefully over-the-top action melodrama that delivers everything anyone who follows Indian action movies could want.” He even called it better than War, the previous film from the YRF Spy Universe.

Canadian publication Globe and Mail also praised Shah Rukh Khan and the film. “Move over, RRR: Bollywood and Shah Rukh Khan are back,” read its headline. The review read, “Pathaan is by no means flawless. It tries to marry a Hollywood-style action film with Bollywood camp. Sometimes it delivers, and sometimes the script is just too banal. It could also be edited more judiciously. But the film entertains and leaves you grooving to an infectious tune at the end.”
