Powerful content always drives audiences crazy despite of the star-hero factor attached with it. Right now Akkineni family’s ‘Manam’ is doing same thing at overseas box office, giving jolts to even USA Box office King, Superstar Mahesh.
At the end of 2nd week, Manam collected Rs 8.33 Crores (14,12,302$) at USA box office pushing Mahesh Babu’s latest flop ‘1 Nenokkadine’ aside. Mahesh is powerful that even his flop flick like ‘1’ managed to grab Rs 8.24 crores from USA Box Office in its full and final run. But ‘Manam’ did that only in 14 days and everyone is going gag over director Vikram’s terrific screenplay. Also the fact that this is legendary Akkineni Nageswara Rao’s last movie has helped in bagging attention, while content did rest of magic. Nag’s doting performance, Chaitu’s cool show, Samantha’s striking screen presence, Shriya’s matured acting and Anup Rubens heart touching background score has helped achieve this feat.
On the other hand, if Manam continues its streak this way, then it is likely to beat the biggest USA Box Office smasher, Pawan’s Attarintiki Daredi that stood at top with $ 1.89 million collections. Following AD is Mahesh-Venky’s SVSC that collected $ 1.63 million and Mahesh’s Dookudu that registered $ 1.57 million collection to stand at third place.
