Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor’s latest film Chhichhore was released on September 6, 2019 and has maintained a good run at the box-office by the end of week 1. The Nitesh Tiwari directorial has collected Rs 68.8 cr nett so far and has maintained a steady pace at the box office. While the film received mixed responses from critics and audience, the box office numbers have surpassed all expectations. The film is a campus drama and apart from Shraddha Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput it also stars Varun Sharma, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Naveen Polishetty, Saharsh Kumar Shukla and Tushar Pandey.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Instagram and shared the box-office numbers. He wrote, “#Chhichhore surpasses all expectations, estimations and calculations... Packs a fantastic total in Week 1... En route ₹100 cr... Fri 7.32 cr, Sat 12.25 cr, Sun 16.41 cr, Mon 8.10 cr, Tue 10.05 cr, Wed 7.20 cr, Thu 7.50 cr. Total: ₹ 68.83 cr. #India biz. HIT.” The collection on Day 7 (Thursday) was higher than that of Day 1 and Day 6. Chhichhore managed to collect Rs 7.50 crore on Thursday, hence bringing the total collections to Rs 68.83 cr.
SpotboyE Editor Vicky Lalwani rated the film 4 stars and wrote, “Would you believe, if you have seen its trailer, that Chhichhore is an extremely emotional film? No, you will not. But it is. (Director) Nitesh Tiwari had told me that this film is a reflection of his college days. But I think the film is also a reflection of (producer) Sajid Nadiadwala's personality as far as I know him- someone who does not spoil his relations but only builds on them.” He further added, “First things first. Sorry Varun Sharma, I have been quite candid with you whenever I analysed you after Dilwale that you come across very repetitive and haven't yet shrugged off your Choocha image. Today, I take my words back, Sexa. And the less said about how much Shraddha Kapoor surprised me in this, the better. Chhichhore's Maya is easily her best performance till date. Stree's ghost stands beaten.”
