Newton is super strong on 1st Tuesday at the box-office!
Rajkummar Rao’s Newton witnessed increased footfalls in theatres on first Tuesday at the box-office collection.
Amit Masurkar’s latest directorial outing Newton starring Rajkummar Rao has been performing very well at the box-office front. After the Oscar selection and the positive reviews, the film seems to have received a boost and, the increase in the number of footfalls at the theatres has been witnessed. The movie narrates the tale of a newly recruited government employee named Nutan Kumar a.k.a. Newton, played by Rajkummar, who is entrusted with the responsibility of carrying out a fair election in a Naxal hit area.
The film started on a low note and managed to make only Rs. 96 lakhs on its opening Friday. However, the huge buzz after its Oscar selection news and the positive word of mouth helped it in increasing the footfalls during the weekend. The movie raked in Rs. 2.52 crores on Saturday and Rs. 3.42 crores on Sunday. The film further made Rs. 1.31 crores on Monday and Rs. 1.34 crores on Tuesday. Hence, the total collection stands at Rs. 9.55 crores at the domestic front.
Along with Rajkummar, the film also stars Sanjay Mishra, Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil, and Raghubir Yadav. Newton is expected to remain stable in the coming days and is not affected much by the competition film Bhoomi and Haseena Parkar that are performing poorly at the box-office. It is a small budget movie and shot in real locations. The makers have increased the screen count of the film citing the good response.
