Sonchiriya takes a slow start at the box office

Acclaimed director Abhishek Chaubey's directorial Sonchiriya hit the screens last weekend amidst a lot of expectations. Expectedly the movie starring Manoj Bajpayee, Sushant Singh and Bhumi Pednekar is very well received by the critics who called one of the best films of recent times. The period drama set in the backdrop of Chambal tells the story of the battle of wits between a crooked police officer and a group of dacoits he is trying to eliminate. Currently, the movie has a worldwide box office gross of Rs. 4.2 Cr. with an India business of about 2.8 Cr. As the things stand currently, the movie may find it tough to recover the theatricals despite highly positive reviews and good word of mouth from the audience.
