The movie 1: Nenokkadine smashed the record of Attarintiki Daredi by releasing in huge amount screens in the country. Having released in 110+ screens in America, the Mahesh Babu starrer was expected to emerge as the highest grosser Telugu film in the first weekend. Besides a bad word of mouth, the movie got affected by most hyped movies like Dedh Ishqiya, Jilla, Veeram and Yevadu at the USA Box Office.
The action thriller 1: Nenokkadine has collected Rs 5.82 crores nett ($946,552) from 105 screens at the USA Box Office in the first weekend and the collection figures of some screens are yet to be reported. Meanwhile, Ram Charan's Yevadu, which opened on Saturday in the country, has collected Rs 1.46 crores nett ($237,170) from 70 screens at the USA Box Office in two days.

1 Nenokkadine: Mahesh Babu's looks and performance are good. But the film falls flat and ends up as a big bore. 1 Nenokkadine: What I liked in the film - interval episode, Mahesh Babu's acting, and background score.

#1Nenokkadine is an intelligent and clean thriller without any vulgarity for families. Families should enjoy this with their children.
#1Nenokkadine is fantastic.Would say a first Hollywood kinda story in Telugu.Very good attempt by Mahesh that would stand out in his career.

Always thought @urstrulyMahesh has a potential Hollywood hero in him and #1Nenokkadine proved me correct once again..Super star all the way
Srikanth Neelamraju @srineelamraju
Mahesh Babu's brilliant portrayal,taut storyline & D.S.P's adrenaline soaring BGM are the major highlights of the film #1Nenokkadine
Ashok Raju @ASHOKTHEKING
Song,BGM,Gowtham mahesh Iddari performance.. Ilanti climaxlu chaala rare.. Hatsoff sukumar N Mahesh #1Nenokkadine
Ajay Chinni @ajaykumarchinni
#1Nenokkadine would have made in Tamil and then dubbed into Telugu. Then people would have said, it is very good.
One thing in #1Nenokkadine to be appreciated is Sukumar & Mahesh..!! They tried to show something new but they completely failed..!!
Prudhvi raj @prudhvi_
There are much better movies that can be praised than #1Nenokkadine. Unnecessary expensive shots. Concept is good but no proper script wrk.
