Naga Chaitanya’s action thriller Custody was released last week to mostly mixed reviews. While the audience appreciated some action elements and the basic premise, the overall treatment of the subject was disappointing and many felt that Venkat Prabhu could have handled the thriller elements better.
After a poor performance on the opening day, the film had even disastrous day 2 and day 3 at the box office. The film just collected around the range of 5 Crores share worldwide for the first week, which is a very disappointing number. With its theatricals being valued at 21 Crores it has become a massive disaster, and it is also another single digit share film for Naga Chaitanya in his career after Thank You Movie.
Naga Chaitanya, Venkat Prabhu and team looked so confident about the film’s result during the promotions before release. Sadly, the film performed terribly and became a big failure at the box office.
Custody starred Arvind Swami, Sarath Kumar, Krithi Shetty, Priyamani, Premji, Vennela Kishore, Sampath Raj, and Ramki in key roles. Ilayaraja and Yuvan Shankar Raja have composed tunes for this bilingual project. Produced by Srinivasa Chitturi under Srinivasaa Silver Screen banner, Custoy is the first-ever collaboration between Naga Chaitanya and Venkat Prabhu.
