The action-thriller managed to create much-needed hype ahead of its release, however, the first reviews of Saaho are average.

According to Box Office India reports, the pre-release sales for the Hindi version of Saaho is around Rs 8.50 crore nett and despite shows being cancelled at many places due to late delivery of movie print, Saaho has still managed to grab the fifth-best advance of the year after Bharat, Mission Mangal, Kabir Singh and Kalank.
