Anushka Sharma starrer horror movie Pari which released last Friday has received lukewarm response at the box office. The movie earned Rs 2.14 crore on Monday, bringing its total collection of four days to Rs 17.48 crore. Pari's highest single-day collection until now has been on Sunday when it minted Rs 5.51 crore. Film critic and Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to report its collection:
After watching Pari's trailer, expectations were high with the movie. Several reports said that the movie is likely to become a game-changer in the horror genre but looking at its collections, it seems otherwise. Pari has also received mixed reviews from the film critics.

Given that Pari was released on Holi, more footfall was expected but the movie only managed to collect Rs 4.36 crore on its opening day. Over the weekend, it earned little over Rs 10 crore but on Monday the movie saw a sharp dip in its collection.
However, Anushka Sharma has been praised for her portrayal of the character with critics saying that she managed to do full justice to the role. Nevertheless, several critics have pointed out that the storyline could been crisper.
Anushka Sharma's husband and Indian cricket team's skipper, Virat Kohli took to Twitter to praise the movie and her acting.
