Rocky aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani box office collection

Review of Karan Johar's film

The Hindustan Times review of the film read, "What stood out in RARKPK has to be its music. While Jhumka and Dhindhora Baje Re are full-on party tracks, Tum Kya Mile and Ve Kamleya are soultouching. The film also pays an homage to classics by Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and Lata Mangeshkar and that ode to the old world charm of Bollywood music is what I truly enjoyed. Oh, and there's also Baba Sehgal's famous track, Aaja Meri Gaadi Mein Baith Jaa, played more than once. Watch the film to know why it is a crucial one in the story. And KJo has not forgotten his nepo starkids (hint: watch out for starry cameos)."

Celebs praised the film

Earlier this week, the film's team held a grand screening of the film. After watching the film, several celebrities took to their social media platforms and praised it. Vicky Kaushal wrote on Instagram, “Loved every bit of it. Hardcore big screen family entertainer! Take your loved ones…don’ t miss it! @karanjohar you are a true master! Tremendous Tremendous performances by @aliabhatt @ranveersingh and what joy to watch the veterans @aapkadharam #JayaBachchan @azmishabana18 on screen!
