Dhadak, a Shashank Khaitan directorial, saw a significant jump on Sunday as its total collection climbed to Rs 33.67 crore. It had begun its theatrical run with Rs 8.71 crore, earned Rs 11.04 crore on Day 2 and Rs 13.92 crore on day 3. Dhadak is a Hindi remake of Marathi film Sairat and stars Janhvi Kapoor (who is making her Bollywood debut with the film) and Ishaan Khatter. Janhvi is the daughter of late actor Sridevi and producer Boney Kapoor.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted out the latest box office figures of Dhadak. He said, “And the BO numbers do the talking… #Dhadak packs an IMPRESSIVE TOTAL in its opening weekend… A consistent run on weekdays will help put up a STRONG Week 1 total… Fri 8.71 cr, Sat 11.04 cr, Sun 13.92 cr. Total: ₹ 33.67 cr. India biz.”
The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta had given the film a negative review. She wrote, “Sairat was set in rural Maharashtra, and takes its young leads to a slummy outpost in Hyderabad. Parshu and Archi learn the hard way that you can run, but not hide, and lead us to one of the most wrenching climaxes in the movies. Dhadak gives us Udaipur and Kolkata and glossed-up grunge, and provides Madhukar and his ‘oonchi-jaat’ love Parthavi some tough times via her snarly father (Rana), which they ride over so easily that the end is not earned enough.”
