Sonchiriya, starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Bhumi Pednekar in titular roles, fails to gain momentum at the box office. The film, which is facing stiff competition from Kriti Sanon and Kartik Aaryan starrer Luka Chuppi, has managed to collect only Rs 2.70 crore till now.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared box office numbers on Twitter and wrote, “#SonChiriya falls flat on Day 2… Minimal growth on Sat is not good news at all, seals the fate… Fri 1.20 cr, Sat 1.50 cr. Total: ₹ 2.70 cr. India biz.”
Helmed by Abhishek Chaubey, this action drama presents a tale set in Chambal.
Despite impressing some cinephiles, the film is yet to make a mark at the ticket counters.
The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta, in her review, wrote, “Abhishek Chaubey’s very scenic Sonchiriya, tramping along those nooks and crevices of the Chambal, expending hundreds of bullets and quarts of spraying blood, made familiar by countless ‘daaku’ films of the 70s and 80s, almost always feels like a retread.” She gave two stars to the film.
Apart from Bhumi Pednekar and Sushant Singh Rajput, the film also stars Manoj Bajpayee, Ranvir Shorey, and Ashutosh Rana among others in pivotal roles.
