- Raabta earned Rs 1.75 crore on Monday
- Raabta is a love story based on reincarnation
- Jim Sarbh stars as the antagonist
In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee gave the film 2 stars out of 5. "Raabta is a painfully elongated saga that plays out across two lifetimes separated by several centuries. The characters are superficially etched. Given the lack of depth in his role, it is a marvel that Sushant Singh Rajput occasionally breathes life into the vacuum at the heart of the film. Jim Sarbh is out of his depth in the garb of a crazed lover. For Kriti Sanon, Raabta is a choppy, rudderless ride."
Raabta stars Rajkummar Rao in a cameo. He plays a 324-year-old man in the film. Raabta is Dinesh Vijan's debut film as a director.
Ahead of its release, Raabta was embroiled in a copyright case. The makers of Telugu film Magadheera claimed that some portions in Raabta were 'lifted' from their film.
Raabta released along with Rajkummar Rao and Shruti Haasan's Behen Hogi Teri and Hollywood film The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise.
