This week there are two women centric movies releasing – Sonakshi Sinha's Noor and Raveena Tandon's Maatr – on the same day. Slated to hit the screens on April 21, these movies are locking horns at the box office.

Sonakshi's Noor is a movie based on a journalist's life. It is a debut movie of comedian Kanan Gill and actor Purab Kohli. Directed by Sunhill Sippy, this is another women-centric film of Sonakshi after Akira, which failed to impress people.

However, Noor is based on a book by Saba Imtiaz called 'Karachi, you're killing me'. It tells the story of a girl and her mis-adventures. Her love life is a mess while her personal life is headed nowhere.

On the other hand, Raveena is making a comeback with this thriller film, Maatr. The hard-hitting controversial drama features Raveena as a mother seeking revenge for her daughter's rape. The trailer was quite impressive, but the censor board is making it difficult to release the film.

It is being said that the censor board is not impressed with the film and yet has not provided it a certificate. Thus, it is still not sure whether it will hit the screens this Friday or not.

However, if it does, it will give a tough competition to Sonakshi's Noor. Raveena has already garnered appreciation for her performance when the trailer released. What do you think, who will win the box office battle – Sonakshi or Raveena? Share your views on the comment box below.
