Ajay Devgn and Tabu starrer De De Pyaar De performed fairly well as compared to our expectations. Despite the fact that the film was released on working Thursday, the Akiv Ali directorial did decent business in India on its opening day. The film opened to mixed reviews from the film critics. While some lauded the humour, others were not happy with the misogynist content. Despite everything, De De Pyaar De has come out as a surprise package on its opening day. Taran Adarsh declared the box office collection on his Twitter. On its opening day, De De Pyaar De has raked in around Rs 10 crore, being only a couple of digits lesser than Student of the Year 2's opening day collection.

De De Pyaar De Box Office Prediction: Will this romantic-comedy be Ajay Devgn's another 100-crore hit?

However, it can be said that the opening numbers are high citing the early paid previews on Thursday night. The film was released on Thursday evening in many cities including Mumbai, Pune, Delhi NCR and other cities. Despite a dull start, the footfall began to increase during the night. There was no other Bollywood film in competition with De De Pyaar De. Student of the Year 2 already exhausted its run by then, which left the audience with little or no option. Let's see how Ajay Devgn and Rakul Preet Singh's romantic-comedy fares during weekend.
India TV film critic wrote, "Many characters including Jimmy Sheirgill, Javed Jafferi and Alok Nath were redundant. Their roles were limited to only cracking jokes and adding to the humours, the little of what was left in the film. Tabu was not used upto her full potential though she was the only bright spark. We already saw her in Andhadhun and we know what she’s capable of. Ajay Devgn is slipping out of his character way too often. At one point he’s a mature 50-year-old man who understands life but at the same time, he makes an utterly stupid mistake. The blame goes to the lazy writing that can’t stick to one form of character."
