Was Crocodile stronger at Marineford? Or was he holding back in Alabasta?

 During the Alabasta arc, Crocodile displayed a level of power that was initially considered overwhelming by the Straw Hat Pirates. He possessed the Logia-type Devil Fruit called the Suna Suna no Mi (Sand-Sand Fruit), which granted him the ability to control and transform into sand. He had a reputation as a Shichibukai and controlled the desert kingdom of Alabasta from the shadows. His strength was showcased through his battles with Luffy and others. At Marineford, Crocodile was present as part of the war that took place at Marine Headquarters. While he did participate in the battle, he didn't display the same level of dominance as some other powerful characters present. This has led fans to speculate that he might not have been as strong as initially portrayed in Alabasta. It's important to note that power scaling and character abilities can be subject to interpretation and development by the author. Oda often keeps details deliberately open-ended to keep the story intriguing.

Vikram Vedha collects Rs. 11.50 crores

 Vikram Vedha Film industry Gauge Day 1: Hrithik Roshan-Saif Ali Khan starrer takes a sluggish beginning; gathers Rs. 11.50 crores

Indeed, even after a great deal of show, the Pushkar and Gayatri coordinated Vikram Vedha has taken a sluggish beginning in the cinema world. As per early gauges, the film has gathered in the scope of Rs. 11.25 to 12.25 crores on its first day of the season, which is around 25% underneath what might have been viewed as a good beginning. The first day of the season is even beneath Bachchhan Paandey which had gathered Rs. 13.25 cr. on Day 1.

A movie with two stars like Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan should have aimed for a Rs. 20 crore start; the average industry expectation was for an opening in the range of Rs. 15 to 17 crores. Whether it be in the mass belts or the metros, the movie has underwhelmed. Hrithik Roshan is a major name in Hindi cinema, therefore the poor reception on single screens has come as a surprise.

The dynamics of the opening day are somewhat similar to those of Bachchan Pandey, the Akshay Kumar gangster film, which did benefit from the Holi holiday on the day of release but saw some of its business eaten up by The Kashmir Files. The general consensus among reviews is positive, and it is hoped that the movie would gain steam starting on Saturday before solidifying its place on Wednesday due to the Dussehra Holiday.

In order to eventually reach the century mark, Vikram Vedha must now make significant gains over the following two days and then put up a strong hold on Monday. A poor weekend performance trend would be dangerous for the movie. Positive discourse is being heard, and weekend foot traffic is expected to increase as a result.
