“Srimanthudu” opened to positive reports and blockbuster talk all over. Unanimously from critics to celebs, everyone gave a 3+ stars rating for the movie. And now, what has to be seen is how these ratings and reactions transform themselves into collections, with nearly 60 crores ‘share’ riding high on the flick from theatrical collections.
Two films have performed quite differently this year, alarming trade pundits too. One happens to be “Temper” and the other one is “S/o Satyamurthy”. Jr NTR’s movie carved by Puri Jagan, was rated with 3.5+ stars and declared a blockbuster on Day 1. However the movie failed to collect the producer’s full investment as it collected only 42+ crores share while it has to recover 50 crores. Coming to “S/o Satyamurthy”, the film is rated 2.75+ stars by critics but audiences liked it and helped it amass nearly 51+ crores.
So, all the ‘reactions’ on the day one haven’t translated exactly into ‘collections’ in these two cases. We have to see what happens in the case of “Srimanthudu” then.
