Luka Chuppi, Total Dhamaal BO Day 2: Kartik's Film Zooms Upwards, Ajay Devgn-starrer Scores Century
Kartik Aaryan's 'Luka Chuppi' zooms upwards on day 2, 'Total Dhamaal' enters the coveted Rs 100 crore club.

Kartik Aaryan-Kriti Sanon film Luka Chuppi, which opened to a great box office figures on Friday, has witnessed further growth in its day 2 collection. The film earned Rs 10.08 crore on Saturday. The film also broke the record for Kartik's biggest opener after it opened to a staggering Rs 8.01 crore.

Luka Chuppi even opened better and bigger than Alia Bhatt's Raazi (Rs 7.53 crore), Rajkummar Rao's Stree (Rs 6.83 crore) and Badhaai Ho (Rs 7.29 crore).

Tweeting the latest box office figures, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote: "#LukaChuppi zooms upwards on Day 2... Another strong day [Day 3] will place it in a comfortable position due to the controlled costs... Will cross *opening weekend* biz of #SKTKS [₹ 26.57 cr] and #PKP2 [₹ 22.75 cr]... Fri 8.01 cr, Sat 10.08 cr. Total: ₹ 18.09 cr. India biz." (sic)

In the film, Kartik essays the role of Guddu who takes a cue from Bollywood's extended wedding season and decides to get hitched. He proposes his to-be-wife, Rashmi (played by Kriti), with an inverted ring. However, the tables flip when keeping up with the modern trend, Rashmi proposes a live-in relationship instead of the wedding. In comes the complications- what to do and what not to do?

The film also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Vinay Pathak and Aparshakti Khurrana.

News18 film critic Priyanka Sinha Jha rated the film 3/5. In her review, she wrote, "Laxman Utekar, is a welcome addition to the list of directors looking to explore different stories –and with Luka Chuppi, it is quite evident that he is here to stay. Between the world of big metropolitan cities and the villages there is a wide swathe of small towns teeming with tales waiting to be told. This film is about one such story. Despite its flaws, Luka Chuppi holds the potential to spawn a genre around the live-in issue which in India has been quite the elephant in the room."

Meanwhile, Total Dhamaal continues its stellar run at the box office. Directed by Indra Kumar, the film features an ensemble cast with big names like Ajay Devgn, Madhuri Dixit, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi and Riteish Deshmukh among others.

The film entered the coveted Rs 100 crore club on Saturday. Its current total stands at Rs 106.32 crore.

Total Dhamaal is the third installment in the Dhamaal series and marks the onscreen reunion of Madhuri and Anil after 19 years.

On the other hand, Sushant Singh Rajput-Bhumi Pednekar's latest release Sonchiriya is struggling to stay afloat at the box office. Helmed by Abhishek Chaubey, the film also features Manoj Bajpayee, Ranvir Shorey, and Ashutosh Rana among others in pivotal roles.

Despite getting rave reviews from the critics, the film only managed to earn Rs 1.20 crore on its day 1.
