Ace director SS Rajamouli is overwhelmed with the box office response of the recent releases 'I'(Ai, Manoharudu) and Gopala Gopala. The talented director who is tied up with a busy schedule for his upcoming magnum opus 'Baahubali', has appreciated Vikram starrer 'I'(Ai, Manoharudu) and Pawan-Venkatesh starrer Gopala Gopala on his official micro blogging page.
'I', (Ai, Manoharudu) is the recent released movie which is making news in both Tamil and Telugu film industry. Even though Shankar's 'I' has been received mixed responses from the critics, the movie is doing well at box office. The movie has been simultaneously released in Telugu as Manoharudu. Vikram's good market value in Tollywood has made the movie to collect Rs. 7 crore at the first day at box office, which is enormously a huge amount collected for a dubbed movie.
In contrast2 the talk and reviews looks like #I have struck a chord with the audience.The collections have been phenomenal so far. Even #GG
Gopala Gopala is a remake of Hindi movie Oh My God, which was released worlwide on 10 January as a Sankranthi treat. The satirical comedy movie stars Pawan Kalyan and Venkatesh in the lead roles. Apparently, the Pawan-Venkatesh starrer was preponed the releasing dates of the movie to 10 Jan, which was earlier fixed its releasing dates on 14 Jan. Gopala Gopala made good business till Shankar's 'I'(Ai, Manoharudu) released on 14 Jan. From then it wasShankar's 'I' v/s Gopala Gopala.
Is faring quite well for the talk it generated initially. The long weekend is also helping. year started on a good note for film business.
