Here's the list of top five films that earned the maximum during the opening weekend.

Raazi received a lot of praise from film critics for not only Alia Bhatt's acting prowess but also for the movie's direction and how it breaks stereotypes. In his review for NDTV, film critic Raja Sen wrote: "Meghna Gulzar does commendably depict how the other side (Pakistan) is just like us - there is a rather clever use of the song Ae Watan, a patriotic track sung with equal fervour from both sides.

Raazi is an adaptation of Harinder Sikka's novel Calling Sehmat, the film is set against the backdrop of the 1971 Indo-Pakistan war, where Alia Bhatt plays a spy named Sehmat, who is married to a Pakistani army official, to pass intel to the Indian government. The film also features Soni Razdan, Rajit Kapoor and Jaideep Ahlawat.
