Although October had a slow start on the opening day, it picked up well in multiplexes and metropolitan cities on the following days. The film has consistently fetched Rs 2 crore on all weekdays since its release, hinting at a continuing upward trend.

Dhawan's performance seems to have truly stood out in the film, that has been written by Juhi Chaturvedi. The film revolves around Dan (played by Dhawan) a hotel management trainee, who is unable to come to terms with the accident of his friend Shiuli (Sandhu). The storyline of the film has been described as an 'experience' by several critics, because it manages to convey more in very less words. October released on 13 April.
