Dunki Movie Review: Mixed Reactions to Shahrukh Khan and Rajkumar Hirani’s Film


Dunki Movie Review: On December 21, 2023, Dunki made its theatrical debut. Shah Rukh Khan plays the main role in Rajkumar Hirani’s film, which also stars Vicky Kaushal, Taapsee Pannu, and Boman Irani. The story follows five friends who enter another country illegally in search of better opportunities. It’s a comedy-drama.

Fans were ecstatic when Shah Rukh Khan recently traveled to Dubai for a Dunki promotional event. The marketing campaign appears to have been successful because Dunki exceeded Prabhas starrer Salaar’s advance reservations while also building fan anticipation. Due to the fact that the movie comes out the day before Salaar, there is a fierce rivalry between SRK and Prabhas’ fan bases. Early estimates put the movie’s box office receipts between $7.2 million and $8.4 million. It might also accomplish the astounding first-day opening of $12.02 million. However, viewers’ reactions to the movie have been inconsistent thus far.

At 5:55 a.m. IST, Dunki broadcast its earliest morning program. But what happened next was a range of conflicting responses from moviegoers. Dunki is Rajkumar Hirani’s best movie to date, according to some fans, but other viewers were disappointed, calling it dull and less interesting. The movie was first shown in a special theatre by the SRK Universe fan club. A video has been shared by the same club on Twitter. It conveyed the fandom’s excitement for the early morning show in theatres.

In addition to the positive feedback, a few Twitter users expressed dissatisfaction with the film. The movie, according to a video shared on Twitter, is “A Poor Content With Illogical Stuff.” They also discussed how the Rajkumar Hirani film did not live up to their expectations. The user went on, calling it “Old School Poor Drama With No Entertainment Material.” It will be interesting to see how much Dunki gathers by the end of Day 1, though, given the audience’s mixed response.
