Yash Raj Film’s movie ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’ has fared better than Sonam Kapoor’s movie ‘Khoobsurat’ in the Box Office. Featuring Parineeti Chopra and Aditya Roy Kapur in leading roles, ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’ has earned Rs. 8 crore in two days after its release. The opening day collection of the movie was 4.75 crore, almost twice that of another release ‘Khoobsurat’ (Rs. 2.74 crore). But, on the next day, on Saturday, ‘Khoobsurat’ collection (Rs. 3.74 crore) was more than that of ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’ (at Rs. 3.25 crore).
Yash Raj Film’s promotion had fared well in luring the viewers in theater. The critics have given mixed response to the movie.
- Hidustan Times review with 3/5 rating – “Daawat-e-ishq is not a film to miss this weekend. For me, Aditya Roy Kapoor is the show-stealer in DEI. A delicious watch.”
- Times of India rating is similar at 3/5 – “This one won’t fill your hungry hearts, but one serving (not too bland, not too spicy) isn’t too bad for your appetite.”
