Sidharth Malhotra, Manoj Bajpayee and Rakul Preet starrer, Aiyaary has kicked off on a dull start. The film has managed to collect Rs ​4.04 crore on day 2. ​"#Aiyaary witnessed an upward trend on Sat, but the 2-day total is underwhelming... Biz is better in metros... Fri 3.36 cr, Sat 4.04 cr. Total: ₹ 7.40 cr. India biz.," tweeted trade analyst Taran Aadarsh.  

The film is getting a mixed response from the critics and masses. SpotboyE.com’s Editor Vickey Lalwani gave the film 3 stars​.

“Pandey keeps going back and forth- which was really not required- and the story keeps going ahead in a linear fashion. Extremely well directed, but Aiyaary somewhat fails on its story telling and screenplay. Why couldn't the story of two army officers- who have fallen out- be told through a simple narrative? So yeah, the movie is a tad confusing in parts. Even Sidharth Malhotra's reasoning with Manoj Bajpayee justifying why he changed colours is not convincing,” he wrote in his review.

Praising Manoj Bajpayee’s performance in the film, he wrote, “He is most underrated actor of today's times and carries the film's entire quota of oxygen. What a brilliant performer he has been, even when he had just a 2-minute scene with Shah Rukh Khan in Veer Zaara. Watch him in his confrontation scene with Malhotra. Watch him in the scene where he apprehends Rakul and subsequently calls up Malhotra. Watch him in all his scenes with his senior,  Vikram Gokhale, who consequently get a run for his money.”

Considering that Neeraj Pandey’s movies have managed to do extremely well, it was expected of Aiyaary to do a decent business at the box-office. However, if these numbers are anything to go by, the future of the film is bleak. Let’s see what happens next.
