Check out De De Pyaar De's day 1 box office collection below:
Ajay Devgn's second offering of 2019 is an urban rom-com where a 50 year old man falls in love with a much younger woman. In a three star review of De De Pyaar De, our film critic Urmimala Banerjee wrote, "The biggest highlight of the film are the one liners. Some of them are absolute killers! Yes, some might find them sexist but you cannot ignore that the writing is quite clever. Full credit to Luv Ranjan, Surabhi Bhatnagar and Tarun Jain. Performance wise, Tabu steals the show. She is the only character whom you connect with emotionally. From a no-nonsense smooth-talking owner of a resort to shedding buckets as the tired single parent, she strikes a chord."
Rakul Preet Singh, who plays the role of a young lover to Ajay's 50-year-old character in De De Pyaar De, feels age is just an number when two people are in love. "It’s not about the age but it’s about the person. If I am attracted to an older person who has the same wavelength as I do then I don’t have the problem with that, because at the end of the day what matters is that they both are happy together and complement each other. If there is such person then he must be young at heart otherwise age is just a number," the actress had earlier told ANI.
Coming back to the BO numbers of DDPD, we expect that they gain momentum over the weekend as the film is getting good reviews from both critics and the audience. Meanwhile, if you intend to watch De De Pyaar De, check out our review first.
