The events of Pongal / Sankranthi 2023 seem to repeat at the Indian box office in Nandamuri Balakrishna. Bhagavanth Kesari is witnessing the same as Veera Simha Reddy which was released in January. After a terrible start, it went downhill after Waltair Veerayya was dismissed the next day. Similarly, Balakrishna’s recent release also faced a major setback due to the arrival of Tiger Nageswara Rao. Here’s how both movies did yesterday!
In the month of January, we saw many big movies hit the theaters. From Tollywood, Veera Simha Reddy and Waltair Veerayya were released in theatres, while in Kollywood, Varisu and Thunivu went to the cinema halls. Balayya’s film took a brisk start at the Indian box office but took a hit at the business after the Chiranjeevi and Ravi Teja starrer came the next day.
The same is happening now, but the only difference is, that Ravi Teja’s film did not open with impressive numbers this time. Yes, Tiger Nageswara Rao, despite enjoying a good pre-release buzz, made his debut at the Indian box office. Based on the first events, the film has been increasing 9 crores on day 1 and that is a dangerous sign.
Released yesterday, Tiger Nageswara Rao has been getting mixed reviews from the critics, and even the word of mouth is not going to like it. With such a worrisome start, the film may have a hard time keeping up during the week, and it will need to earn more money in the weekend itself. This kind of reception has given Bhagavanth Kesari a chance to see at the ticket window.
Bhagavanth Kesari earned money 17 million On its opening day (Thursday), and with the arrival of Tiger Nageswara Rao yesterday, the show was cut short. This, along with the regular working day, had a major impact on Balayya’s film on day 2 as a 50% drop was recorded. Yes, according to estimates, actor Nandamuri Balakrishna got it 8 million on Friday.
Today, Bhagavanth Kesari is expected to hit 12 crores, and if tomorrow, it comes close to the opening day or even beyond that, the film will have a chance to shine during the week. On the other hand, Kambuku Nageswara Rao has to do the heavy lifting today by targeting 13 to 14 crores.
Note: Box office numbers are based on estimates from various sources. The numbers have not been independently verified by Koimoi.
