- The film earned Rs 1.37 crore on its opening day
- Film is based on gangster Dawood Ibrahim's sister Haseena Parkar's life
- Shraddha Kapoor features in titular role in the film
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote, "Haseena Parkar is bereft of frisson and focus."
"The film crafts a morally dodgy portrait of the 'godmother' of Nagpada, Dawood Ibrahim's tough-minded sibling who ran the dreaded mafia don's crime syndicate by proxy in the 1990s and the noughties without ever being brought to book. The film falls off the deep end in the process," Mr Chatterjee wrote.
"Shraddha Kapoor, for whom this is meant to be a career-altering outing, bites off more than she can chew," he added.
In an earlier interview with news agency PTI, Shraddha Kapoor talked about her character in Haseena Parkar and said, "I have played the role of Haseena to the best of my ability."
"I loved the story. It's a real life character, who has suffered so much loss in her life. The film was challenging for me," Shradhha told PTI.
Shradhha Kapoor's Haseena Parkar clashed at the box office with Sanjay Dutt's Bhoomi and Rajkummar Rao's Newton.
