It has done fantastic business and the mass has really loved the film. But Chef as new release has an edge over Judwaa 2. Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta had given a mixed review of Chef.

If Chef’s content is good and people actually like it, then the film may collect as much as Rs 15 crore by the end of the weekend.”

Of course, Judwaa 2 is primarily to blame. Until Sunday, this Raja Krishna Menon directorial has brought home only Rs 4 crore which is far lower than what was expected.

Saif Ali Khan’s Chef is only the latest victim of this juggernaut. This Varun Dhawan has had a dream run at the box office ever since it was released on September 29 and even now is eliminating newer releases from the competition with relative ease. And that’s got to do with the uneven, stodgy writing. Its weekend collection must have been dismaying for the stakeholders and especially Saif Ali Khan who has not had a good time even with some of his previous films. 2017-10-09T19:15:38+00:00″>
