Vijay Deverakonda, the undisputed leader of the 'Rowdy Army', is currently in the limelight due to his latest movie Dear Comrade that arrived in theatres on Friday (July 26, 2019) much to the delight of his fans. The film, helmed by Bharat Kamma, marks the young sensation's second collaboration with Kodava beauty Rashmika Mandanna and this has helped it become the talk of the town for all the right reasons. Dear Comrade opened on a good note at the AP/TS box office and collected a share of around Rs 6 crore on Day 1. Now, the latest estimates for Day 2 are out.

Day 2 Collections
According to early estimates, Dear Comrade collected around Rs 4 crore at the AP/TS box office on Saturday (July 27, 2019) and remained the top choice of the target audience. The actual figure might be higher than these estimates if the offline booking is better than expected.
Could The Collections Have Been Better?
Dear Comrade received mixed reviews from critics with most of them criticising the film's second half for being too slow. The ordinary WOM and the lack of mass elements seem to have prevented Dear Comrade from performing to its full potential on its first Saturday, which is an alarming development.
An Important Release
Unlike Arjun Reddy and Geetha Govindam, Dear Comrade has hit screens in four languages (Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil and Kannada), which makes it the most important film of Vijay Deverakonda's career. If Dear Comrade becomes a success, it might open new avenues for the young hero. However, if it under-performs, it might take a toll on the star's popularity.
The Way Ahead
Dear Comrade is likely to show a good jump in collections on Sunday (July 28, 2019) especially in the big cities. However, the growth might not be as good as expected in most mass centres. Either way, the next few days are crucial for Dear Comrade.
