Let’s have a quick review of another Indian Express critic- Shubhra Gupta. After watching the film, she has given an average review to the film.

She pointed out in her review that the director Shashank Khaitan, who is known to produce quality in his films (Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya) is simply missing from Dhadak.

As per the industry reports, Dhadak box office collection will surely be on the higher side.

With a thunderous collection on the opening day, the film is able to occupy the number 1 slot in the list of highest opening day collection of films by any newcomer in the industry.

Well, it dethrones 2012 released film Student Of The Year that starred Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra.

Aathia Shetty’s and Sooraj Pancholi’s film Hero stands 3rd among the top performers with a collection of Rs 6.69 crore.

In the same ways, Tiger Shroff’s Heropanti occupies the 4th slot with collection of Rs 6.52 crore.

And, finally another film that is given 5th slot after collecting Rs 4.48 crore on the opening day is none other than Ishaqzaade.



It collected Rs 4.48 crore and featured Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor.

Most trade experts suggest that in order to expect the same collection over the times, the film needs to maintain the same momentum.

As per a report, Dhadak has been able to include its name among 8th highest opening day collection films in 2018.
