Rajkummar Rao's new film Newton's success must be overwhelming for the makers of the film. Newton showed great progress at the box office over the weekend and has continued to charm the cine-goers even on weekdays. Rajkummar's film is 'ROCK-STEADY' and has managed to make a total of Rs 10.73 crore till date, reports trade analyst Taran Adarsh. The political drama had opened across 430 screens on Friday and made a total of Rs 9.55 crore till Tuesday whereas it finally touched the 10 crore mark on Wednesday. "Newton is ROCK-STEADY... Fri 96 lakhs, Sat 2.52 crore, Sun 3.42 crore, Mon 1.31 crore, Tue 1.34 crore, Wed 1.18 crore. Total: Rs 10.73 crore," wrote Taran Adarsh.
 

Newton has also been selected as India's official entry for the Oscars.The film narrates the story of a rookie government clerk, who is sent on election duty to a naxal-controlled town in Chhattisgarh.

Rajkummar Rao shared his experience of being part of Newton and told NDTV: "I genuinely liked the script. It spoke about something relevant, and something that is a new world for me. And Newton as a character was somebody so idealistic, with so much honestly and sincerity that I could relate to his passion. All he wanted to do was change a few things in his own world."

In his blog on Newton for NDTV, film critic Raja Sen wrote: "Newton, too, is set up by his silences. It is hard for a director and an actor to make a strongly credible character out of an observer who does not always express himself entirely, and Newton is a protagonist who spends an awful long time being quiet."

On Friday, Newton released along with Shraddha Kapoor's Haseena Parkar and Sanjay Dutt's Bhoomi.

Bhoomi has so far earned Rs 8.46 crore at the box office while Haseena Parkar has only made a total of Rs 5.47 crore.
