This week saw the release of Sidharth Malhotra-Parineeti Chopra's 'Jabariya Jodi', which is based on the subject of 'pakadwa vivah' and 'groom-kidnapping' prevalent in Bihar. The film was majorly panned by the critics for its weak execution and storyline. Speaking about its box office, the romantic-comedy failed to strike gold there as well.
The film began on a dull note and collected Rs. 3.15 crore on its day of release.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#JabariyaJodi is dull on Day 1... Needs miraculous growth on Day 2 and 3 for a respectable weekend total... Fri ₹ 3.15 cr. India biz." (sic)
Meanwhile, here's what the netizens have to say about the film.
#JabariyaJodi was useful.used the patchy #4G internet to browse and revise my love for reading while inside the theatre. Found a great article that highlighted the importance of reading as a culture. It was enriching!
I also loved the coffee I had in the interval. Amazing!" (sic)
"Liked the movie. Made me laugh a lot. Sid was absolutely amazing he needs to do more rom coms #JabariyaJodi." (sic)

"#JabariyaJodi You can't make a #bihar landscape film in Film city Mumbai with too urban actors ,their loud dresses & fake accent. You have to think & be like @anuragkashyap72 or @Ashwinyiyer if you wants to make such films. Disappointed.

"What could have been a super entertaining film has been completely ruined by a confused story and bad direction. The movie loses direction when it tries to include every topic under the sun and finally ends up in a huge pile of mess." (sic)
