Trade analyst Amod Mehra says, "Salman's film has had a great run at the box office and it will break his own box office record that was earlier set by his film, 'Ek Tha Tiger' (2012). The film did see a drop in its collection over the last week, but that was expected."

'Kick' will be the fourth film to join the Rs 200 crore club. The other three films who can boast of this distinction are 'Dhoom 3', 'Chennai Express' and '3 Idiots'.

Marathi film, 'Lai Bhaari', that stars Ritiesh Deshmukh, has already collected Rs 33 crore; distributor Nitin Keni says that it has broken the record set by 'Timepass', which has clocked in Rs 31 crore so far.
