Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh has tweeted Manmarziyaan’s business figures. He wrote, “#Manmarziyaan has a low Day 1... Started on a dull note in the morning, but picked up towards evening... North circuits were better... Biz will scale upwards on Sat and Sun [a norm these days], but real test will be on weekdays... Fri ₹ 3.52 cr. India biz.”

However, most of the critics have praised the film and its direction. Anurag, known for the unique depiction of violence in his films, has opted for an intense lovestory set in Punjab’s Amritsar this time.
Surprisingly, Manmarziyaan’s most fierce opponent at the ticket window is a film that released two weeks back, Rajkummar Rao-starre Stree, which is all set to enter the Rs 100 crore club. One of the bigger hits of the year, Stree, also starring Shraddha Kapoor, has earned Rs 95.53 crore so far.
