Naveen Polishetty-starrer Jathi Ratnalu is doing impressively well at the box office. The comedy-entertainer which released on March 11 coinciding with Maha Shivratri has garnered huge attention of the audience especially for its storyline, performances of the actors and whistle-worthy dialogues that are quirky and relatable.
