More about Dunki

Dunki is a comedy-drama based on an illegal immigration technique ‘donkey flight’. Apart from Shah Rukh and Taapsee, the film also stars Vicky Kaushal, Boman Irani, Vikram Kochhar and Anil Grover. The film marks Shah Rukh’s third and last release of 2023, following back-to-back action blockbusters in Pathaan and Jawan.

Dunki clashed with Prabhas-starrer Salaar at the box office. Salaar has been leading the box office numbers, and giving stiff competition to Dunki. A few days ago, a report by Variety added that it was Salaar which was leading at the 3rd spot in the international box office, followed by Dunki in the 4th position in the pre-Christmas weekend. Salaar has been on a record-breaking streak at the worldwide box office, collecting 402 crore so far.

Even at the domestic box office, Salaar has had a bumper opening. The Prashant Neel directorial has garnered 250.34 crore in India, while Dunki followed behind, so far earning 124.01 crore.

Dunki review

An excerpt from the Hindustan Times review of the film read, “Dunki isn’t just a boy meets girl love story where he helps her realise her dreams. It makes for a compelling storytelling with a rather significant subject of illegal migrants from India who resort to dangerous routes to land in countries abroad, and often end up sacrificing their lives. You have to give it to Hirani for beautifully blending a pertinent issue of illegal migrants, with a love story at the core. I loved how Dunki resorts to a lighter tone to make a strong point about why the poor and non-English speaking Indians are not allowed visas in several countries.”
