The Indian audience is changing its taste and it is helping the films with unique topics get a wide recognition as well as monetary benefits. 2017 has been very fruitful for such content driven movies as they are being massively loved by the crowd and have earned quite a decent amount.
The latest of these pleasant lot is Rajkummar Rao starrer Newton. Started slow but with exceptional reviews from critics, highly positive word of mouth and the news of it being India’s official entry to Oscars this year, have helped Newton dominate the box office.
For your information, Newton is released with Bhoomi and Haseena Parkar and both of these movies had got more screens than Newton but the latter out-earned and outlived both the films.
Newton has collected approximately 11.83 crore in its 1st week. This Friday, Judwaa 2 is released so Newton won’t be earning much in 2nd week. However, it will still retain some screens as audience will be coming for its shows.
Here are Newton’s 1st Week Box Office Collections:
Friday – 96 lakhs
Saturday – 2.52 crore
Sunday – 3.42 crore
Monday – 1.31 crore
Tuesday – 1.34 crore
Wednesday – 1.18 crore
Thursday – 1.10 crore (approx.)
Total Collections – 11.83 crore
