Shahrukh Khan's Dunki Becomes 7th Biggest Opener, But Falls Short of Expectations

After watching the debut of Shahrukh’s daughter, the fans of SRK were desperately waiting for his most-anticipated film “Dunki”. Finally, On Thursday, 21st December 2023, the film launched on the big screens and people flocked to watch it. Now, those who have not watched it yet are getting keen to know the review of it. For all such fans, we are present here to share “Dunki Review” along with the information about the Dunki First Day collection. It is worth noting that SRK has had a great year and both of his movies “Pathaan” and “Jaawan” crossed over Rs 1,000 crore all around the world. 

Shahrukh Khan’s Dunki : Disappointing Start but Worldwide Collection Shows Promise

Now, SRK has great faith in this film too, wishing to get positive reviews and a great collection. As expected, this movie made a great start on its opening day and accumulated an Rs. 30 crores net domestic total as shared by Sacnilk, an industry tracker. With this one-day collection, the movie has become the 7th biggest opener after Jawaan, Animal, Pathaan, Tiger 3, Gadar 2 and Adipurush. With these figures on the opening day, Dunki has made the least successful film of the year as compared to other released films such as Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan, Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani and so on. 

As we mentioned above, The most-anticipated comedy-drama movie has made Rs. 30 to 32 crore on its first day. And if you look at the worldwide collection of Dunki it has collected Rs. 55 crore as of now and we believe that figures will increase. Many people have not watched the film yet and they are searching for “Dunki Review”. SRK has tried his best to make this film worth watching but still the movie failed to impress well and got mixed reviews from the audience and critics. The film has received the lowest opening in the comparison of two earlier releases of SRK in 2023. 

What Is The Storyline Of The Movie?

This movie has been constructed under the direction of acclaimed filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani, who is known for delivering or making emotional connections with the audience through their films. Sadly, the main aspect of Hirani’s writing is missing in “Dunki” which makes people highly disappointed. However, Hirani is not the sole writer of this film as he has co-written with Kanika Dhillon and Abhijat Joshi. The film has failed to capture the attention of the audience and they seem to be confused about the subject of illegal immigration. 

Speaking about the plot of the film is the story of friends Manu (role-played by Taapsee Pannu), Balli (Anil Grover), and Buggu (Vikram Kochhar) who are the natives of a small village in Punjab. Just like a typical Punjabi, they all want to go abroad at any cost to make their lifestyle better. This group of friends has got help from a soldier named Hardy (Shah Rukh Khan). Now, what exactly happened in the film is subject to watch as we all know Punjab has a rich history of migrations both legally and illegally.
