Despite being tagged as 'mindless', 'loud', 'dumb', 'pointless' and 'exhausting', action thriller Bang Bang! has emerged as a clear winner at the box office with business of Rs.27.54 crore on the first day with simultaneous release Haider minting just Rs.6.14 crore.

Bang Bang!, reportedly made at a budget of Rs.180 crore, was pitted against Rs.24 crore film Haider, which is Vishal Bhardwaj's adaptation of William Shakespeare's 'Hamlet', with both releasing Thursday.

Directed by Siddharth Anand, Bang Bang! starrs Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif. In addition to star power, it has ingredients like love story, amazing stunts and peppy music.

With Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor as the lead actors, Haider is set against the unrest in the Kashmir Valley and revolves around a man who wants to avenge his father's death.

If one goes by numbers, the chemistry between Hrithik and Katrina has overpowered the intense love story of Haider.

Bang Bang! opened across the country at 90 percent occupancy and continued its run at the counters through the day, said a statement.
