Luka Chuppi, directed by Laxman Utekar, opened to mixed reviews on Friday. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Luka Chuppi 2 stars out of 5. "Luka Chuppi isn't without its moments, but its downside overwhelms its strengths by a big margin. It offers shallow entertainment at best. Watch the film only if that is good enough for you," he wrote.
Luka Chuppi clashed at the box office with Sushant Singh Rajput's Sonchiriya, which got fabulous review from the critics, but didn't perform well at the box office. According to a Box Office India report, Sonchiriya collected Rs 1 crore on the opening day.
