Despite stiff competition from Badla and Captain Marvel, Luka Chuppi is trying to sustain itself at the box office. The Kriti Sanon-Kartik Aaryan starrer has earned Rs 71.48 crore at the box office.
Trade analyst Taran adarsh tweeted, “#LukaChuppi is trending well on weekdays… [Week 2] Fri 3.15 cr, Sat 5.20 cr, Sun 5.31 cr, Mon 2.05 cr, Tue 2.07 cr [marginally higher than Mon]. Total: ₹ 71.48 cr. India biz.”
Luka Chuppi has remained steadfast at the box office through its first two weekends but it remains to be seen how the film will survive in the coming days. Taran Adarsh earlier wrote on Twitter that Luka Chuppi might cross Rs 80 crore at the box office.
Directed by Laxman Utekar, Luka Chuppi is a romantic comedy that also stars Vinay Pathak, Pankaj Tripathi and Aparshakti Khurana.
The Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film 1.5 stars and wrote, “Somewhere deep inside Luka Chuppi is the film it wanted to be: a send-up of the tiresome rituals and hypocrisies which bind socially-sanctioned relationships, and an attack on religious bigotry. But the writing and the treatment is so slack that the intent rises to the surface only occasionally.”
