The Arjun Kapoor-Sonakshi Sinha starrer "Tevar" has failed to impress at the domestic box office on the second day.
The film, which hit the screens on 9 January, opened to average response on the first day, minting around ₹7.5 crore. Its business was expected to grow on Saturday (10 January), but the film saw only a marginal growth and managed to earn ₹7.70 crore on the second day, according to Koimoi.
Its two-day box office collections stand at over ₹14 crore and the action entertainer is looking at ending the opening weekend with about ₹24 crore at the Indian box office.
The performance of "Tevar" has not been on expected lines, considering that Arjun and Sonakshi's earlier releases have done well on the opening day at the box office.
"Tevar" is unlikely to surpass the opening weekend collectionsof Arjun's "2 States" and "Gunday," which raked in around ₹38 crore and ₹43 crore, respectively.
It is also unlikely to beat the three-day domestic collections of ₹41 crore of Sonakshi's "Holiday". However, the film might surpass the first weekend collections of "Finding Fanny" of ₹19.90 crore.
"Tevar" has managed to fetch only average reviews from critics and the film's performance will be based on the word of mouth. If it manages to garner positive feedback from the audience, the action drama flick might witness decent growth at the box office.
Directed by Amit Sharma, "Tevar" is an action entertainer with Arjun playing the role of a kabbadi player who helps Sonakshi escape marriage with a dangerous leader played by Manoj Bajpai.
"Tevar" is a remake of Telugu film 2003 release "Okkadu," which fared well at the box office. The Tamil version of the film titled "Ghilli" also turned out to be a huge hit. It remains to be seen how "Tevar" performs in the coming days.
With the Bipasha Basu-Karan Grover horror flick "Alone" releasing on 16 January, "Tevar" might face some competition at the box office.
