Dear Comrade, the new film of Vijay Deverakonda has had a decent opening in Telugu states. If seen worldwide it is much better thanks to the US and the rest of India. First let’s look at the numbers and then, see what it means to Vijay Deverakonda’s standing?
The opening day collection of the Dear Comrade in Telugu states is around 6.8 Cr. It is the highest for Vijay Deverakonda bettering his previous best Geetha Govindam which was a crore less. The capacity was much higher for Dear Comrade, unlike Geetha Govindam which had a lesser release due to theatre shortage. Also, the first day numbers of Dear Comrade include hires.
When it comes to the worldwide figure, Dear Comrade is around 9.3 Cr. It is in the same ballpark as Geetha Govindam. The premiere number was less, and that made the gap shorter between the two despite the lead in the Telugu states. Overall, Geetha Govindam is still marginally ahead.
The openings are good, without any doubt. It suggests the promotions worked and people were interested in the movie. They also saw it even after the mixed word of mouth which indicates the star power of Vijay Deverakonda. Any other film with a random actor would have collapsed from the matinees, but that did not happen here.
Still, Dear Comrade is not among the top 3 openers of second league heroes in Telugu states. They belong to Ram, Nani, and Naga Chaitanya. It means there is a lot of scope for improvement in this area and Vijay Deverakonda needs few more solid hits under his belt for mass approval.
Vijay Deverakonda is currently riding on the youth wave, but that could vanish pretty soon as seen in the past with other such youth stars. Mass approval is mandatory for longer sustenance even within the second tier of heroes, and that is what puts the likes of Nani and Ram (for now) ahead. The dreams of reaching the top in the second league are still visible, and a lot depends on what he serves in his next outings.
