Janatha Garage Overseas Profit Loss Statement


NTR’s Janatha Garage, which was opened in USA with premieres on August 31st 2016, had a good run at Box-office. While in Telugu states Janatha Garage is a Blockbuster, in USA and other overseas territories it  has ended up at a super hit level – but not a blockbuster.

Janatha Garage had a great opening with all time 3rd highest premiere gross of $585,000. Despite being negated by many web reviews,this movie had continued its momentum through the long weekend to add another one million to it’s premiere gross.By first weekend ,Janatha Garage has collected a stunning $1.56 Million Gross in USA. At this rate,any other super-hit movie would have easily touched $2 Million mark (One such was NTR’s previous hit ‘Nannaku Prematho..’ which made $2.02 Million). Lack of entertainment/repeat value marred the prospects of long-run coupled with poor web publicity ‘Janatha..’ has managed to add only $225,000 in its rest of the full run – after first ‘weekend’.


When a small budgeted movie like ‘Jyo Achyutananda’ was able to run aggressive web promotion even in its second week, what stopped Janatha Garage team from doing web promotion after first weekend is big puzzle amongst NRI NTR fans we spoke with.

Overall, Janatha Garage has collected $1,784,119 Gross and $1,091,500 theatrical share in USA. After expenses deduction , the distributor share is $972,500 [6 Cr 40 Lakhs INR]. From Non-USA territories it has fetched another 1 cr 40 lakhs INR. Thus ,the overseas distributor has made a cool 7 Cr 80 Lakh estimated share. The distribution rights were bought at 7 Cr 20 lakhs. The estimated Nett profit for the overseas distributor is a cool 60 Lakhs INR.

Losses for Local Exhibitors :

This movie was sold to third party local exhibitors in one third of the areas , and remaining two third areas were distributor’s own release. Out of those third party areas, most of them ends at 20% losses due to sky-high prices. For Bay-area, a local exhibitor has bought for whopping  $170K and share is $127K-$135K and  a loss of 20%. For Virginia, an exhibitor  has bought for $110K, share is $87.5K and estimated loss is 20%.

For records, Janatha Garage is All Time 6th highest Grossing Telugu Movie in USA, which missed 5th rank ( Attharintiki Daredhi) by mere $100K
