Sunil's Krishnashtami, which released last Friday, despite being panned by critics, managed to rake in Rs.6 crore in its opening weekend in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states.
"The film has worked with the masses. Hence, the numbers have been good. It has collected Rs.6 crore in the first three days since its release. If it can sustain for the next two days, it's headed for a very successful first week run," said trade analyst Trinath.
Directed by Vasu Varma, the film also stars Nikki Galrani and Dimple Chopade. Produced by Dil Raju, the film has music by Dinesh Kanagarathnam.
The film has a simple story of an NRI guy, who meets a girl on his way back to India, during his stopover at Europe. The unexpected delay of the flight results in brewing of love between the lead pair and sets a few fun sequences.
Though it was all a happy affair till then, a twist in the tale arises as the couple heads back to Hyderabad. How the hero fights back the circumstances and brings the tale to a happy ending, forms the rest of the story.
