Normally in the Telugu Film Industry, the so-called “class” films do not open to huge numbers at the box office like the commercial genre flicks. With Saaho, Prabhas created a lot of records with the opening collections. The collections in both the South as well as the North were mind-blowing.
But, Saaho was a commercial action entertainer that was marketed extremely well. It also had the added advantage of being Prabhas’ next film after Bahubali: The Conclusion.
But now there are no real advantages for Radhe Shyam. In fact, there are a lot of negative factors for Radhe Shyam. Firstly, it is a class film and Prabhas is used to more mass movies. The director of Radhe Shyam, Radha Krishna Kumar is also not a notable director by any means. His first and latest film, Jil was a flop at the box office.
The only positive of the film is the name, Prabhas. It will be interesting to see if his stardom can pull people to the theatres. The trending topic currently in the industry circles is whether Radhe Shyam will open to massive collections or lull at the collections box.
