Super Cinemas general manager Khorem Gultasab stated his sentiments as . “We gave 48% shows to Yalghaar and 43% to Mehrunissa at our cinemas, providing them the maximum space to prove themselves. And they did,” he said.
Gultasab said Yalghaar attracted a mainly young crowd enthusiastic for an action film experience whereas Mehrunissa brought in more families, women in particular. “I would say Yalghaar’s biggest success was reigniting the nationalistic sense in our youth. I saw people chanting Pakistan Zindabad as they walked out of the cinemas. On the other hand, Mehrunissa brought a lot of happiness. I was in the theatre watching the people and everybody had a smile on their faces.” (Courtesy : Tribune)

Whereas, MVLU is a film having drama,action and romance with some beautiful locations of Northern Pakistan and a few good songs.
Both the films have maintained a good position uptill now as compare to the previous releases like
Balu Mahi and chalay Thay Saath which hardly crossed 3 crores.
