For Varun, this is his third best opening numbers at the box-office, after Dilwale which also starred Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Kriti Sanon besides the actor and ABCD 2 which had Shraddha Kapoor essaying his love interest. Also, Badrinath Ki Dulhania has registered the third highest opening of the year so far after Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees (Rs 20.42 crore) and Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2 (Rs 13.20 crore).
SpotboyE film critic Khalid Mohamed gave it 2.5 stars and said, "Despite being handicapped by ill-conceived part, Alia Bhatt is as spontaneous and pixiesh as ever. And Varun Dhawan re-establishes a charismatic screen presence. Handling his mood swings ably, he is particularly impressive in the climax which could have become laughable under an out-of-control actor."
So, over all, Badrinath Ki Dulhania seems to be heading for a great weekend opening. Looking at the improved collections on Day 2, it will be safe to say that the movie will only ascend further in the coming days.
