Gunasekhar’s magnum opus Rudhramadevi is the talk of the town. Taking critics, trade analysts by surprise, the movie is setting cash registers ringing at the Box Office. The Anushka Shetty-Allu Arjun starrer, which opened to mixed reviews, garnered good collections in two Telugu states much to the surprise of many. Even the historic drama is faring well in overseas. As per the trade sources, the Telugu version alone grossed Rs 25 Crore share world-wide in the first three days (including Thursday premiers)
However, the movie which was simultaneously released in Hindi, failed to repeat the magic there. Trade analysts declared the film as super flop as the film’s collections were in no close to SS Rajamouli’s epic Baahubali. The Hindi-dubbed film couldn’t manage to pull in crowds to theatres. Despite having Anushka Shetty (Baahubali fame) and Rana Daggubati ( who has hits like Dum Maaro Dum, Baby, Baahubali to his credit) as film’s lead cast, Rudhramadevi didn’t do well in Hindi. Apparently, there was no hype surrounding the film in Hindi unlike Baahubali. This said to have affected the Hindi-dubbed version.
For now, the Telugu version is doing well bringing cheer to its makers. Let’s wait and watch how the film going to fare in the coming week.
