If some criticised the film for its mysogynistic nature, others loved the bromance between Kartik Aaryan and Sunny Singh. Despite the mixed reviews from critics, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety turned out to be one of the biggest hits of 2018 so far. The film crossed the Rs 100-crore mark, despite competiton from films like Raid, Pari and Hichki.
