Tevar starring Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha which released on January 9 got moderate reviews. Although the film was a remake, director Amit Sharma had retained only the essence of the South film and made an entirely new and entertaining film.
Tevar film's rawness may not appeal to a certain section of the audience, however it will interest the single-screen audiences. It is a total paisa-vasool entertainment.
Tevar has got everything in it from comedy to romance to emotion to drama and action. Tevar managed to earn Rs 7.05 Cr on its first day. During the weekend, the collections dropped. The film had to struggle to perform at the Box Office. Reportedly, Tevar collected Rs 7 Cr nett on Saturday and on Sunday a meagre Rs 8.10 cr.
Going only by the word of mouth promotions, Tevar is expected to pick up slowly. The only competition for Tevar is PK and that is a very tough one, considering that it's a hit film from Aamir Khan.
Arjun Kapoor had given a hit film 2 States before, but Tevar seems to be going slow. If we look at the current film's trend at the Box Office, collections are expected to grow. Tevar made a very less collection of Rs 22.15 Cr only in the first weekend of it's release.
