Noor & Maatr – 1st weekend box office collection
Last Friday, we get to see two movies releasing, which include Noor and Maatr. Now, time to discuss their box office collection story, which is interesting to catch with. First, let’s talk about the Sonakshi Sinha’s film Noor. It showed slight growth on Sunday with a collection of Rs 2.09 crore. The film collected Rs 5.52 crore in first three days. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Noor has a dull weekend. Its business saw growth, but not substantial enough and the 1st weekend box office collection for Noor tolled to around 5.52 cr.
The film has apparently failed to woo audience despite having a brand-new women-centric plot. The film has got mixed reviews from critics and fans. Raveena Tandon starrer Maatr which released this Friday along with Noor has also failed to pull the crowds at the theatres. The film that was released on around 350 screens collected Rs 80 lakhs. Taran tweeted, ” #Maatr Fri 40 lakhs, Sat 40 lakhs. Total: ₹ 80 lakhs [350 screens]. . So, in nutshell, if you check the 1st weekend box office collection it tolled to around 16.5- crores.
Raveena in an interview recently said that she doesn’t understand the word ‘comeback’. “I have made at least fifth or sixth comebacks. Honestly, the word comeback does not bother me. It is a clichéd line and media keeps using it. According to them, Bombay Velvet was my comeback, so was Buddah… Hoga Terra Baap, Shobhana 7 Nights, Onir’s films and now they are also calling Maatr my comeback. There is nothing more original left to say.
