India's entry to the Oscars next year Newton is going exactly the way people thought it would at the box office. The film completely relies on Rajkummar Rao's finesse and the content and both of that is getting slowly appreciated. It was supposed to grow on people slowly and steadily and thus, the first day numbers are pretty low. It has only earned Rs 96 lakhs on the opening day.
