Sui Dhaaga, directed by Sharat Katriya (Dum Laga Ke Haisha) and produced by Yash Raj Films, is the story of Mamta (Anushka Sharma) and Mauji's (Varun Dhawan) strenuous efforts to start a tailoring and embroidery business against all odds.
The film opened to favourable reviews on Friday. Film critic Saibal Chatterjee, reviewing the film for NDTV, said: "Sui Dhaaga falls well short of perfection, but it never comes unstuck. It passes muster as a wholesome entertainer embellished with humour, warmth, authentic emotional trappings and actors adept at going seamlessly along with the flow."
Sui Dhaaga released along with Vishal Bhardwaj's Pataakha, which collected Rs 6.55 crore in the same time.
