Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon’s romantic comedy Luka Chuppi has earned Rs 90.17 crore. The film is still minting money, but it is hard for the Laxman Utekar to cross the benchmark of Rs 100 crore.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the box office figures of Luka Chuppi on Twitter. He wrote, “#LukaChuppi crosses ₹ 90 cr… [Week 4] Fri 61 lakhs, Sat 81 lakhs, Sun 97 lakhs, Mon 43 lakhs, Tue 36 lakhs. Total: ₹ 90.17 cr. India biz.”
Luka Chuppi also stars Aparshakti Khurana, Pankaj Tripathi, Vinay Pathak and Atul Srivastava.
Luka Chuppi received mixed to positive reviews. The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave it 1.5 stars. Shubhra wrote, “This could have been a fun, sharp film, done right. Instead, we get never-ending scenes of family members yakking, neighbours gossiping, and a few passages between Guddu and Rashmi which are meant to be sensuous and flirtatious (rolling in bed in shorts and Ts, haww, talking of ‘protection’, how forward, double haww).”
She added, “Aaryan and Sanon, in their first pairing, come off standard-issue Bollywood. It’s also the kind of film which allows Pankaj Tripathi to play a cheapo who cannot keep it in his pants, which he does with full gusto. But the character (and some of his questionable lines, included strictly for laughs) also cheapens the film.”
