Trade analyst Taran Adarsh said the fourth and final Avengers movie is already on the path to creating history.

"'Avengers Endgame is sensational...Creates history... Records highest Day 1 of 2019 so far... emerges biggest Hollywood opener to date... Crosses Day 1 business of 'Thugs Of Hindostan', the biggest opener from Hindi film industry (Rs 52.25 crore in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu)."

"Avengers: Endgame emerges a game changer... Sets new benchmarks on Day 1... An eye opener for the industry that feels national holidays/festivals yield best results at the box office," Adarsh added.

He compared the opening day numbers of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.

"2018: Avengers: Infinity War was Rs 31.30 crore/plus 2000 screens; 2019: 'Avengers: Endgame' Rs 53.10 crore/2845 screens."

Pointing out a coincidence, he wrote: "'Baahubali 2' released on (Friday) April 28, 2017; 'Avengers: Infinity War' released on (Friday) April 27, 2018; now 'Avengers: Endgame' released on (Friday) April 26, 2019...
