latest Telugu movie Daruvu, which released on May 25 world
wide, is one of the most anticipated films in 2012. The movie was
expected to silence the roar of Pawan Kalyan's Gabbar
Singh at the box office. Although it has received an
excellent opening at the BO, it has failed to stop the latter,
which is still doing well at the collection centres across the
country in the third weekend.
Despite getting divide talk, Daruvu, which is described
as a mass entertainer, registered 70% to 100% occupancy at both
single screens and multiplexes across the globe. The movie has
collected approximately Rs 4.4 crores on the first day. Its
business went down on Saturday with its collections reaching Rs 3.8
crores. The movie picked up well on Sunday and it added Rs 4.5
crores to its three days total collection Rs 12.7 crores.
However, Gabbar Singh, which is also a mass
entertainer, remained the first choice for many film goers in its
third weekend. The movie managed to hold housefull in all
multiplexes and single screens. Trade pandits say that
Daruvu did not affect the business of the film, which is
said to have earned Rs 6 to 8 crores.
