Akkineni Naga Chaitanya, Rakul preet singh starrer ‘Ra Randoi Veduka Chudham’ had collected a gross of $549,300 in USA by the end of its full run. Due to Naga Chaitanaya’s craze and Annapurna studio’s reputation, the film opened decently in USA with first weekend gross of $370K, but couldn’t sustain its performance in subsequent days-weeks and ended up at $550,000 mark.
Chaitu and Rakul Preet did a commendable job with their performances, but the weak narration and predictable plot had dented the film’s collections. Overall, USA share for this film is a low $210,000 [ 1.36 crores] and overseas profit loss analysis is as follows :
Overseas distributors of RRVC anticipated it to repeat ‘Premam’ magic (which has collected a cool $830K) and shelled out hefty price. After acquiring overseas rights, they had sold RRVC for 30 Lakhs ,to third parties, in non-USA markets. In USA market, they had sold up to 40% of the areas to the local exhibitors and released 60% areas on their own.
All in all, Overseas distributor had lost to the tune of 80 to 85 lakhs on ‘Rarandoi Veduka Chuddham’. Local exhibitors’ loss is additional to this.
With the new pay structure, RRVC is able to collect mere $210,000 share out of its $550K gross in USA
