Chhichhore follows a group of college friends — Anni (Sushant), Maya (Shraddha Kapoor), Sexa (Varun Sharma), Derek (Tahir Raj Bhasin), Acid (Naveen Polishetty), Mummy (Tushar Pandey), and Bevda (Saharsh Kumar Shukla). The film creates "a world where one meets interesting characters, shares great times and becomes friends for life."
The film has also become Sushant's second-highest grosser in terms of first-day opening sales. It has beaten the opening figures of his previous releases, Kedarnath and Shuddh Desi Romance. However, it was leaked online by notorious piracy website Tamilrockers, which may affect the revenue.
Nitesh Tiwari spoke about the box office response with Indo-Asian News Service, "We are really happy with the audience love to the film and that's enough for us. I don't think much about money because there will be times when your film will work at the box-office and there will be times when your film will not work at the box-office. So, we just want the audience's love and support for this film for a longer period."
While Chiranjeevi’s Godfather is the more hyped between the two films, it is Nagarjuna’s The Ghost which carries the stronger pre-release reports.
Interestingly, two South Indian superstars Dulquer Salmaan in Chup and R Madhavan in Dhokha Round D Corner vie for attention in the Hindi belt in two suspense thrillers.
