The film, written and directed by first-timer Suresh Triveni, has been receiving some great reviews by masses and critics. However, its opening figure at the the box-office is a bit low. The film has managed to collect Rs 2.50 to 2.75 crore on Day 1.

Author and film critic, Khalid Mohamed rated the film with 3 stars and appreciated the performances by Vidya Balan, Neha Dhupia and Manav Kaul. While reviewing the film, he wrote, “Of the ensemble cast, Manav Kaul is excellently nuanced throughout. Neha Dhupia is terrific, too, never striking a false note.
Without a doubt, Vidya Balan is outstanding. Using her voice as a lethal weapon, flicking her tongue to go “oops” and employing those whirpool eyes to dart a thousand words in a single look, here’s one of the year’s most endearing performances worth a big warm bear hug. And dare I say, award trophies? Way to rock, Ms Balan.”

Vidya Balan is on cloud 9 with the response she has been getting for Tumhari Sulu. In an earlier interview with Editor, Vickey Lalwani, Vidya, while talking about playing a late-night RJ who receives all sort of calls, revealed a traumatic fact during her college life.  She said, “I must admit that way back in my college days, I used to get a lot of calls on landline from boys who wanted to talk weird kind of things with me. There were even calls where the caller wanted to talk sexual stuff. It was quite traumatising.

Coming back to Tumhari Sulu, while the film may have opened to low figures, but strong word of mouth and excellent reviews will surely pump up the collections through the weekend.
