    ‘Devadas’ Worldwide Closing Collections – Nag & Nani’s FLOP Streak Continues


    Devadas Worldwide Closing Collections

    Devadas has ended up it’s run worldwide with a distributor share of 25 Cr. Theatrical rights of the film are valued for 35.80 Cr which tallies to a recovery of 70 percent. The film is an own release all over except Ceeded, Rest Of India Markets & Overseas. It is a loss venture in all these sold areas. After a decent 6 days run, the film has dropped & then got hit by another release NOTA in the next weekend. It film can be termed as a FLOP fare in the best case scenario considering most of the areas are own release. This is the fourth consecutive failure for Nagarjuna (ONV, RGG-2, Officer) & second consecutive failure for Nani after Krishnarjuna Yudham.

    Devadas team doing it too late

    0

    Nagarjuna and Nani starrer Devadas released three weeks ago. The film opened well and registered decent revenues in the first week. Though it has a routine story and narration, audience lapped up the film for its entertaining elements. As the collections dropped in the second week, team Devadas should have concentrated more on post release promotions.

    Surprisingly, after completing three weeks of its release, the team started promoting the film. After the release of Aravindha Sametha, Devadas has completely slowed down in all areas. This week two more new films are hitting the screens. So Devadas will be replaced in majority of the centres. There is no point in taking up promotions when the theatrical run is all but over.

    Nagarjuna and Nani should have aggressively promoted it after its release which might have impacted the collections. It is too late for Devadas.

    US box office : NOTA is disaster, DevaDas couldn’t sustain

    0

    It was another terrible weekend for Telugu films at the US box office. While the latest release NOTA had a miserable run, Devadas couldn’t add much moolah to its kitty in the just concluded weekend.

    NOTA took a moderate start with $ 187K from its premiers. Due to the disappointing reviews and poor word of mouth, the political thriller couldn’t draw audience during the first weekend. With $ 69K and $48K from Friday and Saturday respectively, the film has disappointed trade circles bigtime. Awful numbers on Sunday ( $ 25 K approx) means that the film will end as a huge disaster in overseas.

    Nagarjuna and Nani starrer Devadas, which had a decent first weekend despite low ratings, couldn’t sustain in the second week as it failed to add prominent numbers. The comedy caper collected meagre revenues in the second weekend and the total stands at $ 775K

    Trade circles are now awaiting the release of upcoming biggie Aravindha Sametha which is hitting the screens on this 10th in overseas.

    Domestic Weekend Report : NOTA Below Par, DevaDas remains low

    It was a disappointing weekend at the Box-office with New Release NOTA having a poor trend over Saturday/Sunday & the holdover film DevaDas failing to add much.

    1. NOTA : After a very good opening on Friday, the Film has dropped big on Saturday & failed to grow much on Sunday. In fact the collections on Sunday are much less than Saturday which tells how poor the film is. The film has collected an estimated distributor share of 8.20 Cr in Domestic markets in it’s opening weekend against the valued rights of 20.50 Cr. BELOW PAR !

    2. DevaDas : After a huge drop on Wednesday last week, the film continued to remain low even over the weekend. It has added an estimated distributor share of 1.50 Cr in it’s second weekend taking 11 days total to 20 Cr approx. Domestic Theatrical rights of the film are valued for at least 32 Cr. The film is a confirmed FLOP now & will get even worse if nothing happens over the coming days.

    3. Venom: The film has surprisingly opened well in Telugu States. GOOD !

    4. Nawab: The film is a disaster as it hasn’t added much in second weekend to an already low total. Cumulative share of the film is at 1.75 cr against the rights of 3.60 Cr. DISASTER !

    5. Other new release like Bhale Manchi Chowka Beram & Desamlo Dongalu Paddaru have opened to very poor numbers.

    Devadas goes past half million in overseas

    0

    Devadas Overseas

    Tollywood’s latest release Devadas has hit the half million mark in overseas by Saturday.

    The comedy caper opened to lukewarm response from Wednesday premiers in overseas with $ 160K. On Thursday, it collected a decent $ 90K to take the total past $ 250K by the end of the first day. With below par reviews and word of mouth, Devadas managed to surpass the half million dollar mark by Saturday night with $ 135K and $ 150 K on Friday and Saturday respectively.

    Given the low ratings and feedback from audience, this is a so-so box office performance for the film. Also, it should be noted that the hype in overseas is low before the film’s release.

    Directed by Sriram Aditya, the film has Rashmika Mandanna and Akanksha Singh as female leads. Aswini Dutt is the producer.

    Devadas : What really happened in the editing room

    Directing a multi-starrer film with two top heroes is no mean task. This has been once again proved with the latest film Devadas which has Nagarjuna and Nani in the lead roles. The film, which released this Thursday, has been criticized by audience and reviewers for the poor work done by the editing team. Here is what actually happened regarding the film’s editing :

    There is a saying ‘ Too many cooks spoil the broth ‘ which literally means that a task is not done well when too many persons are involved in it. This is what actually happened with the editing of Devadas. Both Nani and Nagarjuna suggested several changes during the post production phase, which led to unnecessary edits till the last minute. Also, the production team has involved in the editing work.

    Many scenes have been edited out and some of them were misplaced in the last minute. An emotional scene involving Nani in the second half which came out very well has been trimmed after Nag suggested the editing team and the director. Nani was little disappointed as the scene was left out in the final copy.

    Now, after receiving the feedback about the lackluster editing work, director Sriram Aditya and his team are contemplating to add a few important scenes in the film to make it more convincing and to garner some more buzz on the film. But, as it would some more time to add new scenes, the team is yet to finalize a decision on adding new scenes.

    DevaDas Review : Nag & Nani ‘s Timepass Bromance

    0

    Devadas Review, Devadas 2018 Review Rating

    Telugu360 Rating 2.75/5

    Akkineni Nagarjuna joined hands with Natural star Nani for a full length comedy caper titled as Devadas. Directed by talented director Sriram Aditya, the film has Rashmika Mandanna and Akanksha Singh as the female leads.

    Devadas has Nag playing a don and Nani a doctor. After good round of promotions, Devadas released today all over. Let’s find out its verdict.

    Story: Deva (Nagarjuna) and his Godfather Dada (Sharath Kumar) are high profile underworld kingpins. Deva is a don whose face has never been seen by public, he operates behind the screens. Such Deva is forced to come out to take revenge on the killers of his godfather.

    Dr. Das (Nani) is a top ranker in MBBS, but struggles to get a career break as a doctor. He is fun loving guy, Good Samaritan who rescues Deva from critical bullet injury. After a series of events, friendship strengthens between Deva, Das and latter tries in vain to get Deva out of criminal world. Whether Das is succeeded in bringing change in Deva? And how police and underworld gangs chase Deva etc. form rest of the story.

    Performances:

    Nagarjuna got his recent career best role as Deva. He looked 10 years younger, appears very fit in this film. His introduction scene, reminiscence of Manmadhudu, Ninne Pelladuta image are feast for his fans. Natural Star Nani’s role is entertainment oriented, at his best as Dr. Das. He once again proves his mettle in comedy timing. Heroines have lesser significance, limited screen time in this film.

    Rashmika Mandanna who acquired good following in Telugu, with her recent blockbuster hit, has been wasted in an undercover cop role in this film. Another heroine Akanksha Singh who played as Nag’s heroine is average.

    Senior actor Naresh, actress Satya Krishnan play Nani’s brother and sister-in-law. Murali Sharma played a cop role, Tamil actor Sharath Kumar played the godfather role. Kunal Kapoor as villain is a miscasting. He doesn’t have that menacing look. Vennela Kishore role is limited,Comedian Satya as an assistant to Dr. Das is entertaining.

    Analysis:

    The premise of the film is friendship between two contrasting characters, a mafia don and a doctor. First 15 minutes of the film is so boring, director takes more than required time to establish Deva and his Godfather characters. Once the narration reaches the main plot, i.e. after Dr. Das and Deva enter, picks up the pace and adequate entertainment has been provided until interval. Mainly Nagarjuna’s image has been fully utilized by the director. Nani’s character is designed with entertainment in mind, he obviously made justice to the Dr. Das role. However, after hyping the Deva role as a high profile don, the police department and opposite mafia gang’s efforts to nab him are not convincing. Nani’s and Nag’s scenes alternatively switch initially, has not neatly done . Only after they meet each other then only the narration is neat.

    Second half starts with entertainment scenes as well, towards the middle it turns emotional as Deva, Das part ways. Organ donation camps etc. sub plots take center stage at the middle of second half. However, pre climax and climax are better,lighter vein. Movie ends on a comedy note. All in all, second half has nothing much in offer except few laughs..it is boring at times Production values by Vyjayanthi movies are good. Casting is notable as reputed artists have been roped in for even smallest roles. Songs, art work are rich. Technical department done a decent work. Manisharma provided good tunes for 2 songs , Good background score

    Positives:

    • Nagarjuna, Nani friendship and their best performances
    • Entertaining scenes in first half, partly in second half
    • Two good song tunes, visuals
    • Emotional scenes work with families

    Negatives:

    • Weak plot of the story
    • Police department, Villainy are shown dumb
    • Female lead characters are not properly designed
    • Second half pace drops at middle, boring at times

    Verdict:

    DevaDas is an average film with adequate entertainment at times. Friendship scenes between Deva and Dr. Das came out well, so is entertainment in first half. Director played to Nagarjuna & Nani’s strengths. On flip-side, story is weak, plot has nothing much to write about and 2nd half is boring at times. Overall, if you don’t crave much for strong story point, give this movie a try.

    Young director hurt with Nag’s comments

    Akkineni Nagarjuna has the habit of speaking his mind in media interactions and public events. He did it several times in the past and it is evident once again during the latest interaction for his upcoming film Devadas. As part of the promotions, Nagarjuna spoke about young director Sriram Aditya and made shocking comments on his behaviour and working style.

    During the pre release event of Devadas, Nag labelled Sriram Aditya as a lazy fellow. He said that the director has the habit of coming late to the sets. Sriram seemed to be a little embarrassed with these comments. Again, today, Nag has put the director to shame with his open statements. Nag said that Sriram has showed the final output in the last minute, leaving them with no option to suggest any changes before the film’s release.

    Nag’s comments also pointed out the poor working style of director. These public comments didn’t go well with Sriram and he appeared to be disconcerted during his interviews.

    Devadas is going to be a very crucial film for him. If it manages to garner good talk, his career will get a good fillip. But, if it fails to convince the audience, Sriram will need to bear the brunt for his lack of discipline and poor planning while working with top actor like Nagarjuna.

    0

    Director Sriram Adittya said ‘DevaDas’ is an original film and it is not a remake of any Hollywood or other languages like the reports making rounds in the media.

    Speaking at the press meet, Sriram Adittya said, “Along with Bhupathi Raja, Satyanand and others, we have worked on the script for four to five months. Though Sridhar Raghavan contributed the script, I owned it and then we went for the shoot.”

    Hero Nagarjuna has clarified that why he called Sriram Adittya a lazy fellow. “Sriram did a good job. To manage such a huge canvas, it is a pressure thing but he did never break. My message is not just to Sriram but to all the young directors out there.”

    Hero Nani said Swapna Dutt and others have plotted against him and so Nagarjuna sir made that video about his phone addiction. With Rana and Rakul, acknowledging it, the video went viral.

    0

    King Nagarjuna and Natural Star Nani are all set to thrill the Tollywood audience with DevaDas and the film has been carrying decent buzz all over. Nag and Nani along with the heroines Aakanksha Singh, Rashmika Mandanna have been promoting the film all over the past one week. However during the recent interview, Nag slipped his tongue and made some unusual comments on the film which left the makers in deep shock. “Watched the film couple of days ago. I should have watched it before, did not get a chance” said Nagarjuna.

    Nag indirectly revealed that he is not convinced with the output and if the final copy was shown in advance, he would have made enough changes. There are speculations that Nag is even not happy with the film’s director Sriram Aditya who has been shooting for the film till the last minute. “Every film should be ready one month in advance. Sriram Aditya should consider this for his next films” revealed Nagarjuna.

    Nag has always been open about his films and some of his recent movies have been shot again and enough changes have been made for them before the release. We have to wait to see if Nag’s comments will have an impact on the film’s collections. DevaDas produced by Vyjayanthi Movies is hitting the screens on September 27th all over.
