New Delhi: Veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha is all praises for his daughter Sonakshi Sinha's recent release Noor. In a series of tweets, the 71-year-old actor-turned-politician, gave a thumbs up to this Sunhil Sippy film. He wrote, "Noor, which not only sparkles but makes us proud too. What a great performance, in a brilliantly directed film by Sunhil Sippy." Mr Sinha also raved about the performances of stand-up comedian and actor Kanan Gill, the 'surprise package' Purab Kohli and 'fully focussed and believable' Smita Tambe and Manish Chaudhary. In fact, Shotgun also said how leading critics have 'rightly' praised Sonakshi and 'given full marks for carrying this 'young, beautiful and most desirable film of the day'.

Shatrughan Sinha and his wife Poonam Sinha saw Sonakshi's film on Thursday.

Other celebrities, like Akshay Kumar, have also written 'great things' about the film.

However, box office reports have a different story to tell. Film critic Taran Adarsh have said that the film had a slow beginning and has collected only Rs 1.54 crore across 1450 screens on Friday. Taran also mentioned how the film needs to "have a major jump over the weekend" to leave a mark.

Noor is an adaptation of a Karachi, You're Killing Me! by Pakistani author Saba Imtiaz. The film revolves around journalist Noor, the central character, who is bogged down by the petty and day-to-day chores of her life until she lays her hands on a huge investigative story that can change her life. The film also stars Shibani Dandekar and Sunny Leone, who features in a song as herself.

Apart from Noor, Raveena Tandon's Maatr and Aparna Sen's Sonata also released this Friday.
