Khaidi No 150 was Megastar Chiranjeevi’s comeback film and as expected, the movie created massive records on opening day and collected a share close to Rs35Cr. His next film Syeraa Narasimha Reddy collected more than Rs 45Cr share and Acharaya collected more than Rs30Cr share on opening day.
But Godfather has failed to give big openings like these films and crossed Rs 30Cr share mark on day3 which is pathetic. Its 3 days collection is lesser than Khaidi No 150 opening day numbers. The film held good occupancies on day2 and day3 when compared to Day1 which is a good sign for the makers.
But when we compared it to Chiranjeevi’s recent films or Top stars collections, Godfather is nowhere near. The film needs a steady run at the box office at least for 2 weeks to break even. Prior to the movie’s release, Chiranjeevi expressed great confidence on the film. Godfather opened to positive reviews and has been steadily showing improvement.
But this steady improvement won’t be enough to classify it as a hit. The film needs to score big on this weekend and keep up decent numbers on weekdays as well.
