Will Thoofan register a bumper opening in Andhra Pradesh

Thoofan has opened to mixed reviews, some very bad too, but the buzz around the film has certainly helped it have a wide release in AP over 700 screens. The opening day numbers are yet to come in and one wonders if the film will break Charan’s own box-office opening records.

Trade analysts believe that opening might have definitely taken a beating due to the ongoing political agitation. In fact, except in Hyderabad, rest of the state only witnessed 70-80% occupancy on the release day for the film. It’s an all time low for any star film on the release day.

We have to wait to find out if Thoofan created the storm it set out to create at the first place. Personally, i hated Thoofan, but my reaction won’t make much of a difference to the box-office collection unless people stop going to the film.
