A BoxofficeIndia report earlier claimed the film showed 8-10% occupancy, collecting an estimated Rs 2.5 crore for the first half of the opening day. At best, the collections could rise to Rs 3 crore by day end, it added. With a usual two-day weekend, the film will most likely fall flat at the box office.
Directed by Prashant Singh, Jabariya Jodi was widely panned by critics for a confused narrative and over-the-top drama. Jyoti Sharma Bawa wrote in her review for Hindustan Times, “Jabariya Jodi regurgitates the boy-meets-girl, boy is not sure that he should marry girl, boy realises at the absolute last moment that he needs to say ‘I do’ trope, which is all set in a kind of antiseptic Bihar that could only exist in Film City, Mumbai.”
Jabariya Jodi is based on the practice of abducting grooms, in a bid to avoid dowry, and forcing them into marriage — a practice that was rampant in Bihar. The film brings Sidharth and Parineeti together for the second after they were last seen in Hasee Toh Phasee.
The film received a UA certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) after it suggested a few changes in the original version. A few abusive words have been replaced with milder words while a few references were completely removed.
