The first part of much anticipated NTR biopic titled as NTR Kathanayakudu released today amidst great fanfare and expectations. The film opened to decent reports in overseas and Telugu states.
The Krish directional, which is expected to take a solid opening in overseas, managed to get only an average start from Tuesday premiers. As per the latest trade reports, the film grossed around half million dollars from its premiers and emerged as the best opener for both Balakrishna and Krish by surpassing their previous highest Gauthamiputra Satakarni ( $ 375K). However, it is considered an average start as trade analysts predicted a much better start due to the strong buzz among audience and because of crazy Tuesday ticket offers.
The film needs to perform well over the weekend to break even in overseas. Balakrishna’s stupendous performance and Krish’s rich presentation are the biggest strengths of the film despite its slow paced narration.
