Ever since its inception, Vakeel Saab has been grabbing a great deal of attention from movie buffs. The courtroom drama, which is the official remake of the Bollywood film Pink starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in the lead roles, marks Pawan Kalyan's return to the industry after almost 3 years.
It is a known fact that Power Star enjoys a massive fan base and therefore, when his comeback film hit the cinemas on April 9 amid the COVID-19 pandemic, fans and followers of the actor made Vakeel Saab a huge success with their presence at the theatres. The film began its theatrical run by raking in an impressive collection of Rs 32.24 crore in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
Though the Pawan Kalyan-starrer garnered positive reviews, the film gradually failed to acquire the expected box office collection, solely owing to the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic, which has brought several restrictions including night curfew. Let us tell you that the pre-release business of Vakeel Saab stands at Rs 89.35 crore. The break-even target of the film was Rs 90 crore, however, the film has failed to reach the point as its worldwide collection now stands at Rs 86.10 crore, making the courtroom drama an above-average film.
