Coffee Ani Barach Kahi released this Friday to a lukewarm response. Prarthana Bahere and Vaibhav Tatwawadi starrer love story did not have a great day at the box office on its first day of release. Also ,it got adverse reviews from the critics. The main criticism the film faced was that it lacked freshness which is the main attraction of love stories. With a worn out story line and clichéd characters, the film could neither win hearts of the young audiences nor could it entertain the matutre audiences.
The film showed a low turn out in big cities like Mumbai and Pune. Nagpur, Amravati and Nashik where Marathi films do decently good business, showed a very low turn out. Lack of star presence and low publicity cost Coffee Ani Barach Kahi dearly. On the first of its release, it collected a meager sum of 50 Lakhs
