Box Office: Not a Good V-Day Weekend for ‘Love Aaj Kal’
Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal starring Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan managed to rake in good numbers on its first day. According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh the film has grossed 12.40 crore on day 1. But Imtiaz Ali’s love story set in 2020 and 1989 seems to have slipped at the box office on day 2.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted with the numbers and reported that the film dropped in metropolitan cities, which was the major target audience for the film.
Love Aaj Kal now stands at Rs 20.41 crore at the box office in two days.
The film also happens to be Kartik Aaryan’s highest opening number beating his last release Pati, Patni Aur Woh.
The film however, has received negative reviews, with a sizeable section of critics panning the film. Nandini Ramnath from Scroll said, “Love Aaj Kal is crammed with non-sequitur conversations and faux philosophical musings, but the best bits are the dialogue-free montages, which reflect the beauty and purity of timeless ardour that the film seems to be aiming for.”
Directed by Imtiaz Ali, Love Aaj Kal depicts love stories set in two different eras. The first takes place in the early nineties, and unfolds between Raghu and Leena. The other, set in the present, happens between Veer and Zoe.
