Last Friday, Taylor Swift’s concert film called Taylor Swift: The Eras tour was released in Indian cinemas. 25000 tickets were sold on the opening day and on day three, the movie has made total sales of 2.5 crores. Her fans were seen leaving their seats, singing along, and dancing their hearts out to her songs at the theatres.

The film was extremely important and close to the hearts of her fans in India and other Asian and African countries as she has not performed in most of the countries before. The movie was 2 hours and 48 minutes long in which she performed songs from her entire discography. This tour was even more special because for the first time, Taylor Swift took Swifties (Taylor Swift fans) through all her musical eras. Everything starting from the selection of songs to the outfits she wore were perfectly on point. One of the best things about the performance was her background dancers and vocalists who just added up to the beauty of the night. The highlight of the show was when Swift got to the audience, offered her hat, and hugged late legendary NBA player Kobe Bryant’s daughter Bianka Bryant amid performing her hit song ”22”.

This movie released in the US in the month of October and became the highest-opening concert film after Justin Bieber: Never Say Never (2011). Swift’s film made a grand total of 97 million dollars in North America just on its opening weekend. There is no doubt about it, director Sam Wrench did a fantabulous job in making The Eras Tour an immersive and visually wholesome concert movie.
