Geetha-GovindamGeetha Govindam is the third full-fledged and non-delayed film of actor Vijay Deverakonda in the lead. In simpler words, it is the first release as a solo hero after Arjun Reddy last year. There was bound to be excitement regarding the project.

However, one single changed the fate of Geetha Govindam. The song “Inkem Inkem Kavale” has turned out to be a phenomenal success. It is driving the youth crazy, and that is not just restricted to Telugu states. So, we have a combination of two factors here.

Add the teaser and Rashmika Mandanna’s craze post Chalo into the mix. Geetha Govindam has become a must-see film among the audience. The craze is reflected among the bookings that have been opened so far. They are going sold-out within minutes.

Vijay Deverakonda is still an emerging star as he has just begun his career. Geetha Govindam is only his third proper solo movie. But, there has been a rapid growth in stardom. The fact that Geetha Govindam is chasing the opening day record among tier two heroes is enough to say about the increasing stature.

Nani holds the current top three opening among tier two heroes. Middle Class Abbayi is the top one with over 7 Cr, and it is followed by Ninnu Kori and Krishnarjuna Yudham, both being above 4.5 Cr.

Geetha Govindam is sure to cross 5 Cr, but the final number depends on how big release it is going to get. A release on par with MCA could even make it highest opener due to the present hype and Independence Day, but with multiple holdover releases, that doesn’t look possible. Let us see where it lands, in the end.
