The film is based on the mysterious death of India’s second Prime Minister, Lal Bahadur Shastri. The film that started slow, gained momentum over the first weekend and held strong during the first week.

Film critic and biz analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted about the film’s box office numbers and wrote, “#TheTashkentFiles witnesses substantial growth on [second] Tue… Tue biz *higher* than [second] Fri and Mon… [Week 2] Fri 50 lakhs, Sat 75 lakhs, Sun 1.05 cr, Mon 46 lakhs, Tue 58 lakhs. Total: ₹ 6.84 cr. India biz.”

Talking about the story of the film Vivek had earlier stated that The Tashkent Files is going to be country’s first crowd-sourced thriller. He further stated that the film will be made after doing research work on Shastriji as it will be an apolitical film about a political leader.
