Sonakshi Sinha's Noor and Raveena Tandon's Maatr are headed to become disasters at the box office as both films failed to see an uptick in collection on their second day.
Both Noor and Maatr are female-centric movies and came on the back of good hype and promotions prior to the release. The Sonakshi Sinha starrer was released in over 1,450 screens in the domestic market, while the Raveena Tandon starrer opened in 350 screens on April 21. They were expected to fetch decent numbers at the ticket counters, but that wasn't to be.
Both films received mixed response from the audience and critics and the word of mouth failed to boost their collection on Saturday. Noor showed some growth, but it was not upto the mark. On the other hand, the collection of Maatr remained same on its second day.
Noor and Mattr collected Rs 1.89 crore and Rs 40 lakh at the domestic box office on Saturday, taking their 2-day collections to Rs 3.43 crore and Rs 80 lakh, respectively. Taran Adarsh tweeted: "#Noor remains on the lower side... Doesn't witness solid growth on Day 2... Fri 1.54 cr, Sat 1.89 cr. Total: ₹ 3.43 cr. India biz." He added: "#Maatr Fri 40 lakhs, Sat 40 lakhs. Total: ₹ 80 lakhs [350 screens]. India biz."
Noor was expected to smash the records of Sonakshi Sinha's previous woman-oriented film Akira, which collected Rs 5.02 crore nett at the domestic box office on its opening day. The two-day total of Noor is little more than half of the latter's first day business. With this kind of response in its opening weekend, the movie is sure to become the biggest disaster for the actress.
