Though the collections might seem small, considering that several movies are being showcased simultaneously and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan is now in its second week, the figures are really decent. In fact, we had earlier thought that the film would have wrapped up its run by now. But with good content and a great word of mouth publicity, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan has been able to sustain well and hold on to its audience. Looking at the current trends, the movie might sustain till the end of the third weekend, raking in around about Rs 40 crore in its lifetime run at the domestic box office.

People have loved the film, especially Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar’s performance. Obviously, the script could have been crisper, but everyone has enjoyed the movie and this helped it rake in the moolah. Our film critic – Sreeju Sudhakaran was also mightily impressed, as he mentioned in his review, “Shubh Mangal Saavdhan could have been the best romantic comedy Bollywood has seen in years. It tackles a risky premise, the humour was brilliant and the performances were first-rate. Unfortunately, the writing suffers a ‘gent’s problem’ towards the end, leaving us high and dry. Still, I would recommend you to watch SMS purely for the humour and Ayushmann-Bhumi’s amazing chemistry.”


Is it possible to create a Hindi film around the ‘touchy’ subject of erectile dysfunction without being downright crass about it? Turns out that it is, and quite a funny one at that. This is because the lead pair has an affable chemistry between them – an absolutely essential element when dealing with such a private ‘Gents problem’ (as the film calls it). The whole premise would fall flat without them playing so well off of each other. Ayushmann and Bhumi are able to recreate the magic of being together on-screen, even if their characters aren’t exactly new or challenging to either actor. But it works, so there’s no need to fix it. Additionally, they’re surrounded by a group of talented supporting actors who blend in seamlessly without being too overbearing. This makes the comedy work exactly how and when it’s meant to without stooping to raunchy humour.
