The most awaited movie was released on April 17, two days prior due to the long weekend. The movie received mixed reviews from the audience and the critics.
Although the visual appeal of the film is being widely appreciated by everyone, the storyline didn’t appeal the audience much. The film has made a grand opening and collected a hefty amount on the very first day thereby emerging as the biggest opener of 2019 so far.
The film which opened more than 4000+ screens has collected Rs 21.60 crores on its first day of the release. Mahavir Jayanti holiday has added to the huge numbers and the film has held a benefit of the holiday.
But sadly, the film was a disappointment at the long extended weekend and struggled to rakes big numbers to its kitty. Karan Johar’s multi-starrer has collected the following on the extended weekend
Fri 11.60 cr, Sat 9.75 cr, Sun 11.63 cr. Total: ₹ 66.03 cr. India biz. The higher expectations were from Sunday but there was not much rise in the numbers on Sunday as well.
#Kalank is rejected… Has a lacklustre *extended* opening weekend… Will find it difficult to sustain on weekdays… Arrival of #AvengersEndgame [on Fri] will hit biz hard… Wed 21.60 cr, Thu 11.45 cr, Fri 11.60 cr, Sat 9.75 cr, Sun 11.63 cr. Total: ₹ 66.03 cr. India biz.
