The team of Marjaavaan including lead actors Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh came together to celebrate the commercial success of the film. Directed by Milap Milan Zaveri, Marjaavaan has performed well at the box office, having earned Rs 37.87 crore at the end of its first week.

The film has been performing well in single screens and multiplexes outside metros, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

The makers of Marjaavaan hosted the success bash at a popular hotspot in Mumbai on Thursday night. While Sidharth and Riteish made their presence felt at the celebrations, female leads Tara Sutaria and Rakul Preet were not spotted at the party.

Riteish arrived with his wife Genelia D’Souza. Nora Fatehi grabbed eyeballs in her satin blue wrap dress, while Nushrat Bharucha opted for a black one-shoulder dress with a thigh-high slit.

Marjaavaan earned Rs 24.41 crore in its opening weekend. Sidharth Malhotra was overwhelmed by the audience’s response and told IANS in an interview, “Ek Villain and Brothers introduced me as an action hero. I did not cater to this audience and today I am happy that they have given this kind of response to Marjaavaan.”

However, Marjaavaan failed to impress the critics. The Hindustan Times said in its review that the two-hour-long film took the template of a 80s masala film and made it much worse. “Maybe, just maybe, the older films were a product of their times, when we ostensibly didn’t know any better; back when a post-MeToo world was not even a dream and creativity was dying a slow death on the front benches of paan-stained theatres. Why, oh why, bring it back for an airing in 2019?” the review read.
