Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, who shares the film’s second day collections, tweeted on Sunday, “Zwigato witnesses an upward trend on Day 2 (+44.19 percent) but the 2-day total remains very low due to its Day 1 biz… Biz ( business) must have a miraculous turnaround/bounce on Day 3 for a respectable weekend total…Friday 43 lakh, Saturday 62 lakhs. Total: DKK 1.05 million. India biz.”

The film received positive reviews from critics. Hindustan Times’ review of the film praised Kapil’s performance as a food delivery boy. It read: “Sharma, as Manas, is as earnest and convincing as it gets. It’s a chameleon-like transformation in terms of his body language, demeanor and especially his dialogue delivery without any of his usual Punjabi flair. Full marks to Sharma to get it right. The way he mixes this honesty in his performance with touches of humor without making you feel sorry for his life is endearing and leaves you with a smile.”

Originally, Nandita Das had envisioned Zwigato as a twenty-minute short film, but she later decided to make it a feature film for its compelling subject. The film was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, the Busan International Film Festival and the International Film Festival of Kerala.

Talking about casting Kapil as the lead character, Nandita told ANI, “I hadn’t seen Kapil Sharma’s show so I didn’t know much about him. But one day my eyes fell on a video of Kapil which was from a award show. . When I saw that clip I felt like aam aadmi ki tarah hai. His language and gestures speak of the mannerisms of a common man.”
