Aiyaary is an espionage drama, also starring Manoj Bajpayee and Rakul Preet Singh. The film collected over Rs 8 crore over the weekend and on Monday, it earned Rs 1.43 crore. Aiyaary's current total now stands at Rs 13.19 crore, Mr Adarsh tweeted. "The week will finish at around 17 crore nett and then the film will struggle to hit even 20 crore nett for lifetime business, as it has faced total rejection from the paying audience," a Box Office India report stated.

In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Aiyaary 1.5 stars out of 5. "It is a massive let-down on many other crucial counts. "Aiyaary is comatose and convoluted, is like a patient who's been wheeled in on a stretcher and declared dead on arrival. It never manages to get up on its feet and break into a saunter, let alone a sprint. Aiyaary wants to be a daring thriller that calls out smarmy politicians and arms dealers," he wrote.
Aiyaary hit the screens after multiple rescheduling. It was earlier scheduled to hit the screens during Republic Day weekend, but the release date was shifted due to Deepika Padukone's "Padmaavat" and Akshay Kumar's PadMan. Later, the release was postponed yet again by a week, as the film didn't get cleared by the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC).
Aiyaary also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Adil Hussain and Kumud Mishra in pivotal roles.
