Maatr: Ranveena Tandon in a still from the film
- Maatr clashed at the box office with Noor
- Maatr has made Rs 1.68 crore so far
- Maatr had a dull opening at the box office
Raveena Tandon's comeback film Maatr
had a dull opening at the box office but has managed to make a little over a crore in three days. A report by trade analyst Taran Adarsh says that Maatr
stands at a box office figure of Rs 1.68 crore. Maatr
's second day collections are slightly better than the opening day figures of the film, with scores of Rs 42 and Rs 46 lakhs being recorded for Friday and Saturday respectively. Maatr released alongside
Sonakshi Sinha's Noor
last Friday. Maatr
marks Raveena's return to the big screen in a full-fetched role after 2014's Telugu film Pandavulu Pandavulu Tummeda
. She portrays the role of a grieving mother who is driven to seek revenge for the injustice her daughter was subjected to. Maatr is a women-centric film
which highlights the importance of fighting social evils. Talking about the film, Raveena told IANS: "This is the need of the hour, where people should start changing their mind-set about women and take action against such criminals instead of shaming the victims based on the length of their clothes."
In his review for NDTV Movies, Saibal Chatterjee writes: "Little is likely to come out of Raveena's comeback role no matter how heavy-duty the wounded woman persona might sound on paper. She certainly isn't to blame for the film's pulpy quality. Despite being saddled with a sketchily written character, the veteran actress gives the role her best shot."
Raveena Tandon co-stars with actors Alisha Khan, Madhur Mittal, Divya Jagdale, Anurag Arora, Rushad Rana, Saleem Khan and Shalee Goel in Maatr
. Directed by Ashtar Sayed, Maatr
arrived in theatres on April 21.
