Earlier this year, 'Mass Maharaja' Ravi Teja received some bad news when his film Nela Ticket opened to an underwhelming response at the ticket window and ended up being a commercial failure. Directed by Kalyan Krishna, the action-comedy was unable to impress the critics and received negative reviews from all quarters. With the setback in the past, the star is back in the news because of his latest big release Amar Akbar Anthony.
The film hit the screens yesterday(November 16, 2018) and it hasn't been able to do to well at the box office. Here is the complete report.
Day 1 Collections
According to the latest reports, Amar Akbar Anthony managed to collect nearly Rs 3.80 Crore at the AP/TS box office on Day 1 and got off to a decent start. The buzz is that the figures could have been a lot higher as Amar Akbar Anthony is essentially a mass movie and is helmed by a film-maker of Srinu Vaitla's calibre.
AAA Fails To Beat TCC
Amar Akbar Anthony had an equally ordinary opening in the US marker and raked in merely USD 57,848 from 86 locations. Its collections are lower than those of Touch Chesi Chudu and this is likely to be a cause of worry for the makers.
The WOM Is Negative
The general feeling is that Amar Amar Anthony is a poorly executed film that offers nothing new. Most critics have also said that the plot is predictable and outdated while the screenplay is boring. While Ravi Teja has received some praise, the consensus is that the overall product is disappointing. All in all, the WOM is negative and this is likely to create a problem for the film once in the coming days.
The Way Ahead...
The Vijay Deverakonda starrer Taxiwala hit the screens today(November 17, 2018). Given the young star's popularity, it is bound to be the first choice of Gen Y. Needless to say, this is might affect the business of Amar Akbar Anthony to some extent. Ravi Teja's lacklustre track record too might slow down the film even more...
