Last year, the dashing Vijay Deverakonda became the toast of Tollywood when Arjun Reddy opened to a good response at the box office and emerged as one of the biggest surprise hits of 2017. Directed by Sandeep Reddy, the black-comedy had a bold theme and this helped it click with the younger generation. Now, nearly a year later, the young heartthrob is in the limelight because of his latest release Geetha Govindam. The film hit the screens on Wednesday (August 15, 2018), and it seems to have opened to a good response at the ticket window. Here is the detailed box office report.
A Terrific Day 1
According to the latest trade reports, Geetha Govindam did fairly well on Day 1 and managed to collect nearly Rs 10 Crore at the domestic box office. The romantic-comedy has been released in the Telugu states as well as Tamil Nadu.
Geetha Govindam Outperforms Mahanati
Geetha Govindam opened on a good note in the US as well and collected nearly Rs 2 Crore on the opening day. In doing so, it outperformed Dulquer Salmaan-Keerthy Suresh's Mahanati and served as a strong proof of Vijay Deverakonda's popularity.
The WOM Is Positive
The general feeling is that Geetha Govindam is a pretty good film and features some strong performances. It has clicked with 'Gen Y' because of its youthful setting and lively screenplay. Vijay Deverakonda's chemistry with the lovely Rashmika Mandanna too has gone a long way in adding to the buzz around the film. As such, the WOM is quite positive and this might help it do good business in the days to come.
Vijay Deverakonda Set To Get Another Hit!
Being the only major Telugu film to hit the screens this week, Geetha Govindam is likely to have a free run at the domestic box office in the coming days. It is likely to do pretty good business on Saturday (August 18, 2018) and Sunday (August 19, 2018) and remain the top choice of the fans. As such, it might emerge as a big hit at the box office. In other words, the era of Vijay Deverakonda is upon us. Enough said!
