Last year, the dashing Vijay Deverakonda became the talk of the town when he delivered an awesome performance in Arjun Reddy and left the fans asking for more. The Sandeep Reddy directorial received rave reviews upon release and emerged as a big hit at the box office. The black comedy also ruffled a few feathers because of its bold content. Now, nearly a year later, the young heartthrob is in the limelight because of his latest release Geetha Govindam. The romantic-comedy hit the screens on August 15, 2018, and opened to a good response at the box office.
It did well in the subsequent days and remained the top choice of the fans. Here is a look at the latest box office figures for Geetha Govindam.
Geetha Govindam Enters An Elite Club
According to the latest reports, Geetha Govindam has entered the elite Rs 100-crore club at the worldwide box office and emerged as a big hit. In doing so, the film has effectively established Vijay Deverakonda as the choice of Gen Y.
Geetha Govindam Outperforms Arjun Reddy
Geetha Govindam has outperformed Arjun Reddy in the US and managed to collect more than USD 2 Million at the box office. In case you did not know, Arjun Reddy had raked in USD 1.77 Million at the US BO during its lifetime.
Everyone's In The Green
Geetha Govindam has been shot against a budget of Rs 5 Crore. Given its shoestring budget and tremendous response, it broke even in no time. The trade buzz is that all stakeholders are going to be in the green when all is said and done.
Did The Failure Of The New Releases Help Geetha Govindam?
Last week's releases Neevevaro and Aatagallu failed to make any impact at the ticket window and sank without a trace. The buzz is that this went a long way in helping Geetha Govindam remain the king of the box office. The positive WOM too is another big reason behind it remaining the top pick of the fans.
The Way Ahead...
The Telugu-dubbed version of Nayanthara's Kolamaavu Kokila is all set to hit the screens on August 31, 2018. As the 'Lady Superstar' is a popular name in Tollywood, the film is likely to open to a good response at the box office. This might slow down Geetha Govindam to some extent. However, Vijay Deverakonda's film is still likely to remain the top choice of a certain section of the audience in the coming days.
