Kangana Ranaut is winning hearts again with her yet another stellar act in Simran, which hit the theatres this Friday (September 15). No wonder then despite a niche release (not more than 600 screens), the film, which is directed by Hansal Mehta is doing well at the domestic box office. While it managed to earn Rs 2.77 crore on the first day, it witnessed a 74 per cent growth on the second day and managed to make Rs 3.76 crore on day two. Now the total collections of Simran stand at Rs. 6.53 crore. Clearly, the positive word of mouth is helping the film, and going by the current scenario, there is no one stopping Simran from making more than Rs 8 crore by the end of the opening weekend.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and said, “#Simran witnessed 35.74% growth on Day 2… Fri 2.77 cr, Sat 3.76 cr. Total: ₹ 6.53 cr. India biz. (sic).” Check out his tweet right here: ALSO READ: Kangana Ranaut Saves Simran From Turning Into A Disappointing Affair
Our in-house critic Smrity Sharma in her 2.5 star movie review wrote, “Kangana Ranaut’s Praful Patel act in the film is a bold, brave woman, who doesn’t shy away from expressing herself. She doesn’t get jitters while taking some life changing decisions on her own or when she is making the first move. She doesn’t fear rejection from the opposite sex and that comes from a space of self-respect, self-love and confidence. But when this same Praful Patel takes on the role of Simran, who loots banks to get out of a messy situation, she is shown to do that in the dumbest way possible. She plots, prepares and schemes! I wish she did that in a smarter way, to make the story more close to reality and convincing. Here she was robbing one bank after the other, sans any strategy and without doing much about her appearance and still managed to not get caught. While Praful Patel shines, it is the way the character Simran is written that fails Kangana.”
