The biggest challenge for any filmmaker or producer these days is to recover the investment. In Tollywood, any big hero film is made at a minimum budget of Rs 40 crores and given the market potential of Tollywood, recovering that is quite tough. So, the question making rounds in filmnagar is, can Rs 53 crores be recovered?
Well, this is said to be the budget for the latest release ‘Govindudu Andari Vadele’ starring mega powerstar Ram Charan. Talk is that the film has appealed to the A-centre audience only. Some say the openings are good but they dropped after two days. Another group says the collections are steady.
According to reliable sources, the first day collection stands at around 10 crores so the film has to do very well for at least a week to get to the Rs 30 crores mark. Unless the theatre occupancies are anywhere near 70 percent for the seven days, this figure would be hard to reach. But the stamina of Ram Charan and the positive vibe from the family audience can work in the film’s favor so let us see what happens.
