Sushant Singh Rajput- Bhumi Pednekar starrer Sonchiriya which hit the theatrical screens on March 1, is facing a tough competition from Kartik Aaryan- Kriti Sanon's Luka Chuppi. The dacoit drama which released on a limited screens of 720 screens is struggling to stay afloat.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh had earlier tweeted, "#SonChiriya opens to low numbers, since the screen count [720 screens]/shows are limited and also because it caters to a niche audience... Biz on Day 2 and 3 crucial... Fri ₹ 1.20 cr. India biz." Speaking about the Day 2 box office collection, early estimates suugest that the film has collected around Rs 1.30 crore on Saturday.
Meanwhile, here's what the netizens have to say about this movie.

"Saw #Sonchiriya on friday and I am still in hangover. What a gem of a cinema it was, perhaps best I have seen in long. "Poetry in Motion" Dark. Disturbing. Layered. Thanks Abhishek,writers & Acting School @BajpayeeManoj @itsSSR @bhumipednekar @RanvirShorey Aashutosh @RSVPMovies."

"#Sonchiriya is a rare layered mainstream film, a tale of Dharma & redemption packaged as a thriller, Subversion of Patriarchy & caste division.Great consistency by Mr. Chaubey and Mr. Sharma. Reminded me of High Noon (and one great Jack Nicholson movie which may act as a Spoiler)."
