Also, at the end of Week 1, Luka Chuppi is the biggest first week grosser of Kartik Aaryan's past two films - Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety and Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2. Here's Taran Adarsh's tweet.
In his review of NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Luka Chuppi 2 stars and wrote, "The film 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."
Luka Chuppi released along with Sushant Singh Rajput's critically-acclaimed film Sonchiriya, which failed to make numbers at the box office.
This week, Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu Badla has hit the screens and also, the Hollywood film Captain Marvel.
