The Star films season after the pandemic is starting with Nandamuri Balakrishna’s Akhanda which will release on December 2nd. The movie will also Kickstart the Hungama at the US Box Office. The audience there have been without a proper theatrical experience for a long time.
Coming to the breakeven Numbers of the films, Akhanda has to breach the 600K mark to be a safe venture. The target looks simple but then, Boyapati Srinu’s films are not not kind of films US audience would like. So, fingers crossed. The next biggie, Pushpa has to collect 3 Million Dollars.
With the stupendous success of Sukumar’s previous film, Rangasthalam, the trade is expecting it to be an easy target provided the talk is good. And then comes Prabhas’s Radhe Shaym which has to collect Four Million Dollars in its full run. The movie has to do a lot with the promotions to create the necessary buzz for a flying start.
Bheemla Nayak has 2.2 Million Dollars riding on it. Being a remake film and arriving in competition for Sankranthi may make it a risky proposition. But then, it will all boil down to the Powerstar’s magic.
The last is SS Rajamouli’s RRR starring NTR and Ram Charan. The movie has to collect a staggering 12 Million dollars. This is a massive peak to scale especially with the COVID-19 impact on the market. But then who knows? We are talking about a film by SS Rajamouli – The director of Baahubali.
