Luka Chuppi hit the screens on Friday and the film clashed with Abhishek Chaubey's dacoit drama Sonchiriya at the box office, which features Sushant Singh Rajput and Bhumi Pednekar in the lead roles.
The Laman Utekar-directed film opened to average reviews. Film critic Saibal Chatterjee, gave Luka Chuppi two stars out of five, in his review for NDTV and wrote: "A contrived comedy about issues that are anything but funny - the pros and cons of live-in relationships, the role of oppressive conservatism in the lives of young people, and the scourge of moral policing and political expediency - Luka Chuppi, Laxman Utekar's first Hindi film, plays hide-and-seek with logic and often loses its way."
Apart from Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon, Luka Chuppi also features Aparshakti Khurana, Vinay Pathak and Pankaj Tripathi.
