According to film analysts, Sui Dhaaga has appealed to the masses, especially families, who flocked to cinemas across metros and the 'mass belt'. Good reviews from critics and a positive word-of-mouth have helped the film's numbers.

The film's opening weekend earnings are expected to reach Rs 35 crores. The upcoming national holiday of Gandhi Jayanti on 2 October and the shows on the evening prior to it should also help spike up the Yash Raj feature's box-office collection.

Meanwhile, Vishal Bhardwaj's Pataakha, a story about two warring sisters played by Sanya Malhotra and Radhika Madan has picked up pace, earning Rs 1.40 crores on its second day. The national holiday should be advantageous for this film as well. It is to be noted that while Sui Dhaaga is being played in 2500 screens across the country, Pataakha in its comparison was only released in 875 screens.
