The film clashed at the box office with Imtiaz Ali and Ekta Kapoor’s Laila Majnu and Manoj Bajpayee’s Indian psychological drama Gali Guleiyan. The multi-starrer is expected to collect over 2-3 crore on the opening week of its release. According to film critic and trade analyst Girish Johar, J. P Dutta’s Paltan is a low track movie and the right kind of hype has not been created. With a slow start at the box office, Paltan has so far received a mixed reaction from the audience.
