Most of the audience liked Phillauri and showed thumbs up to it. But the movie has got failed to impress critics completely, some of them have not found it up to the mark because of slow screenplay. Overall this romantic comedy stands on a satisfied position with soulful music and marvelous performances by lead stars Anushka, Diljit, Suraj Sharma and Mehreen Kaur Pirzada.
On the opening day, Phillauri opened with below average occupancy of 20% across India for morning shows. From Delhi, Punjab and nearby regions, it reported highest response because of Diljit’s stardom and registered the opening business of 4.02 crores on domestic box office.

With this, it’s 2 days domestic total has become 9.22 crores. Sunday is positively expected to result in more better business.
Made with a bog-standard budget of 21 crores, reportedly Phillauri has already bagged 12 crores with it’s satellite and music rights. This means only 9 crores more are needed to be recovered from theatrical revenue, which doesn’t seem a big deal for it so far.
