Varun Dhawan, John Abraham and Jacqueline Fernandez-starrer “Dishoom” had a fantastic opening at the box office. The action-adventure drama recorded the sixth highest opening day box office collection of 2016. “Dishoom” shattered the first day business record of Shahid Kapoor-Alia Bhatt starrer “Udta Punjab” to become the sixth highest opener of 2016. “Udta Punjab” earned Rs. 10.05 crore, while “Dishoom” earned Rs. 11.05 crore.

As per critics, the movie has weak story line which pulls it down. Also the music is not very effecting but still the chemistry between John Abraham and Varun Dhawan entertains well. Despite weak plot, presence of stars attracts audience toward the theaters.
