Trade analyst Taran Adarsh called these low earnings ‘shocking.’ In his latest tweet, he released the Box Office figures of Love Aaj Kal and wrote, “#LoveAajKal dips on Day 2… Shocking part is, the decline has come at metros/multiplexes, which is its target audience… Weak at Tier-2 cities as well as mass circuits… Needs a miracle to salvage the show on Day 3… Fri 12.40 cr, Sat 8.01 cr. Total: ₹ 20.41 cr. #India biz.” (sic) Also Read - Love Aaj Kal Movie Review: Remixed Romance of Kartik Aaryan-Sara Ali Khan Lacks Fizz
Love Aaj Kal features Kartik in a dual role and the story tells the difference in romance across two generations – 1990 and 2020. This is the same pattern that Imtiaz used in his 2009 romantic film with the same title that featured Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone. Despite good performances by the actors, Love Aaj Kal received criticism for bringing no novelty to the table. As per some reviews, the film proved that there’s been no change in Imtiaz’ storytelling style in 10 long years, which gets boring now.
Love Aaj Kal opened to a good amount of Rs 12.40 crore and emerged as the top opening day grosser for Kartik. The film broke the record of Pati Patni Aur Woh that collected Rs 9.10 crore on its first day at the Box Office. How do you see the dip in its collection on day 2?
