Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor-starrer Half Girlfriend performed decently at the box office on the first day of its release, while Irrfan Khan's Hindi Medium did a poor business despite getting good reviews from the critics.
Talking about the box office collections, Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, ''#HalfGirlfriend has a STRONG START... Fri ₹ 10.27 cr. India biz..'' He added, ''#HindiMedium Fri ₹ 2.81 cr. India biz.''

A must watch, especially for the 'Elite' class. A great message portrayed in a subtle way. #HindiMedium worth 5 stars!
The book was so much better than the movie sadly I was expecting a lot ! #halfgirlfriend
