In 2017, the dashing Jr NTR became the talk of the town for all the right reasons when the action-drama Jai Lava Kusa opened to a phenomenal response at the box office and impressed all and sundry. Directed by the popular film-maker Bobby AKA KS Ravindra, it featured Tarak in a triple role and proved to be a good gift for his die-hard fans. With 2017 in the rear-view, Jr NTR is currently in the limelight because of his latest big film Aravinda Sametha.
The Trivikram Srinivas directorial hit the screens earlier this month and opened to a solid response at the US box office. Now, nearly two weeks after its release, Aravinda Sametha's run has finally come to an end. Here is the complete report.
The Final Collections
According to the latest trade reports, Aravinda Sametha has ended its run at the US box office and its final collections stand at USD 2.17 Million Dollars.
A Big Let-down
Aravinda Sametha had opened on a terrific note at the US box office and beaten Bharat Ane Nenu and Rangasthalam. As such, the trade experts felt that it would end up setting new records at the ticket window. However, the film slowed down big time in Week 2 and failed to live up to these expectations. As such, the consensus is that Aravinda Sametha is a disappointment in the US market.
Should Trivikram Be Worried?
Trivikram's last three films have crossed the USD 1 Million mark at the US box office. However, barring the 2016 release A Aa, none of the other films have proved to be profitable ventures. This might prove to be a cause of concern for the director.
Aravinda Sametha might be a commercial disappointment for the US distributor. However, it is not another Agnyaathavaasi for Trivikram Srinivas. Unlike the Pawan Kalyan starrer, Aravinda Sametha has received rave reviews from the critics and fans alike. Moreover, it has also proved that Trivikram Srinivas is a talented film-maker who can do justice to Jr NTR's 'mass hero' image. Enough said!
