Laapataa Ladies Box office: Kiran Rao directorial starts steady earns Rs 1.02 crore on day 1


The latest offering from Jio Studios and Aamir Khan Productions, “Laapataa Ladies,” directed by the celebrated filmmaker Kiran Rao, has hit cinemas with a promising start. The film, despite being a low-budget venture, has managed to enchant moviegoers and collect a noteworthy ₹1.02 crore on its opening day in the Indian market.

The heart of “Laapataa Ladies” lies in its riveting narrative and the expert storytelling prowess of Kiran Rao. The movie boasts of stellar performances by the lead trio Nitanshi Goel, Pratibha Ranta, and Sparsh Shrivastav, who have been lauded for their roles that brim with authenticity and appeal. The film’s ensemble also includes distinguished actor Ravi Kishan, contributing to the overall richness of the cinematic experience.

Enthusiasm for the film’s debut was reflected in the words of established trade analyst Taran Adarsh, who remarked, “Released at select screens [mainly big centers] and limited shows, #LaapataaLadies gathered momentum from evening onwards on Day 1… All eyes on its performance on Day 2 and Day 3… Fri ₹ 1.02 cr. #India biz. #Boxoffice.” Mr. Adarsh further elucidated the strategic release plan of the film, which was designed to tap into the content-driven market rather than relying on star power.

This creative production strategy adopted by the makers, which includes Aamir Khan and Jio Studios, focused on a compact and limited release tactic concentrating on big city cinemas. This approach allows the film to thrive amidst the audiences, banking on positive word-of-mouth recommendations to fuel its box office success—a testament to quality filmmaking resonating with movie buffs.

“Laapataa Ladies” unfolds under the dual banners of Aamir Khan Productions and Kindling Productions, with a screenplay offering based on an award-winning story by writer Biplab Goswami. The screenplay and dialogues were brought to life by Sneha Desai, while Divyanidhi Sharma contributed additional dialogues to enrich the film’s conversational fabric.

The critical acclaim that the movie received was mirrored in a review by Midday.com, which awarded the film a commendable 3 stars. The review highlighted the magnetic performances of the fresh talents Goel, Ranta, and Shrivastav, who, along with a well-curated ensemble cast, created a believable and engaging world that draws the audience in with every minute.

Midday’s review emphasized, “The lead guy (Sparsh Shrivastava) is just such an amiable bloke you wanna warmly hug. As is his missing bride (Nitanshi Goel). The wrong bride (Pratibha Ranta) he’s brought home could be a shady lady; we’re not sure. Between these newbie leads—and a carefully assembled ensemble cast, mixing together so effortlessly that you feel they so belong—emerges a believable world, novel enough to draw you in by the minute.”

The enthusiastic reception of “Laapataa Ladies” on its first day sets a buoyant forecast for its upcoming weekend performance. The anticipation now builds for the second and third days, with a keen eye on whether the film’s box office trajectory soars based on the initial positive impressions it has left on viewers. Whether or not “Laapataa Ladies” will sustain its business depends heavily on the continued appreciation from its audience—a challenge that Kiran Rao’s directorial seems well-poised to meet.
