Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma starrer Sui Dhaaga seems to be on the right track. The film opened on a decent note and raked in Rs 8.30 crore. Now, the family entertainer has struck the chord with its target audience and collected Rs 12.25 crore on Day 2.

Trade expert Taran Adarsh took to social media to announce the figures. He wrote, "#SuiDhaaga zooms upwards on Day 2... Catches speed at metros and mass belt... The target audience [families] have taken to the film, thus converting into increased footfalls... Expect a SOLID Day 3... Fri 8.30 cr, Sat 12.25 cr. Total: ₹ 20.55 cr [2500 screens]. India biz (sic)." Editor Vickey Lalwani gave the movie three stars and wrote, "I begin with Varun Dhawan, the boy has put in a very intense performance. He is so lovable, that you will definitely identify with his character if you have struggled in your early days (which I did). I quite like him more when he sports a moustache, do you? As for Anushka Sharma, I could not believe my eyes. She is so good. Marvellous is the word, hardly any dialogues and lots of  expressions- isn't that what real acting is all about? An extra inch for Anushka? Hmmm... nope, it's a tie between Varun and her. In far less than its run of 122 minutes, the endearing Sui Dhaaga drives home the message that love is not about holding hands, necking, kissing and having sex. Sui Dhaaga teaches you that your parents may not be on the same page with you, but you should not neglect them. Sui Dhaaga tells you that never work in an organisation that humiliates you. Sui Dhaaga conveys that you have an inner talent and don't listen to your head and stagnate on the same career path if your heart flutters otherwise."

On the other hand, Vishal Bhardwaj's Pataakha collected Rs 90 lakh on day 1 and has made Rs 1.40 crore on Day 2. Evidently, this is not a great figure and the film will have to register a solid Day 3 figure to hold itself.

Trade expert Taran Adarsh took to social media to share the collections. He tweeted, "#Pataakha shows positive trending on Day 2, but needs to recover lost ground by maintaining a strong momentum on Day 3 and subsequent days... Will get advantage of holiday on Day 5 [Tue]... Fri 90 lakhs, Sat 1.40 cr. Total: ₹ 2.30 cr [875 screens]. India biz (sic)." Editor Vickey Lalwani gave the film two and a half stars. In his review he wrote, "Jhagdalu sisters (Sanya Malhotra playing to the gallery) and Vijay Raaz's (drawing empathy) put their best forward in screen times, which they may find hard to get soon again. But why are they fighting? Hardly for a reason. At some point in the film, it is explained that it’s just like the enemity between Bharat and Pakistan, uff! And the ladies continue to fight, so much so that one of them almost lifts her top and says 'mere kabutar'. Hats off to Vijay Raaz's consistency, the man is at it again. And Sunil Grover is superb! More praise for Sanya and Radhika, it wasn't an easy film to shoot- outdoors, rural areas, kicks, punches, deglam look and lots more than the easy conventional stuff."
