As per critics, War For The Planet Of The Apes is an epic adventure drama that keeps the faith of fans alive towards the series. The movie has impressed everyone across the globe and doing great internationally, but in India it got failed to perform like Spider Man Homecoming.
After the impressive performance of Spider Man Homecoming in last week at Indian box office, this one too was expected to dominate Hindi offerings this week. But keeping all expectations aside, Jagga Jasoos picked up well over the weekend and took heavy lead over War For The Planet Of The Apes from the very first day.
