    100 Cr business, a headache for buyers!

    0

    The market for big movies has grown exponentially in Telugu states after the release of ‘Baahubali’. Achieving Rs 100 Cr share in Telugu states for non-Rajamouli movies is not an impossible task now. ‘Sye Raa’ will be touching this mark in a week proving Megastar Chiranjeevi still is the most popular star. ‘Saaho’ fell short of reaching it.

    But despite being huge grossing movies, both ‘Sye Raa’ and ‘Saaho’ have also exposed that high prices are counterproductive. These movies were sold for staggering prices, a notch higher than the market range. The pre-release record businesses have added hype around them. But what is the use? The majority of the distributors are looking at losses after the release.

    Rs 80 to 90 Cr is the ideal selling price for the Telugu states for such big-budgeted movies. Selling them beyond Rs 100 Cr is a huge risk. Profits for all buyers will not be possible at this rate.

    Prabhas ‘Saaho’ was the best example. It was a costly failure. Since it was released by the producers themselves in most of the areas, no distributor demanded money back. Now for ‘Sye Raa’, except Nizam and Uttarandhra, all other distributors tend to lose money.

    It is time that the producers do business wisely. When distributors don’t get at least 10 percent additional revenue on their investment, it is not sound business.

    ‘Saaho’ (all versions) Worldwide Closing Collections – ‘Up’ in North, ‘Down’ in South

    With new releases releasing & dropping collections, Saaho has exhausted its run, well numbers don’t lie – it was a bust at the box office. The Prabhas starrer has now concluded its box office run domestically at ₹339 crores (₹180 crores Share) and just shy of $10 million (₹30 crores Share) overseas for a global total of ₹410 crores (₹210 crores Share). What was intended to bridge the gap between Baahubali 2 and the number two at the Indian box office, ended outside the top ten at number thirteenth-highest grosser of all time domestically as well as worldwide (among all Indian films with all versions).

    Before dropping in the what went wrong and what went right, here’s the Saaho break down by territories, along with the share earned, compared with what was supposed to be earned by the film.

    Coming to what went wrong section, with over ₹270 crores rate card, the film had pretty big shoes to fill. The pre-release business was encouraging but that’s the downside of trade in South India. The film, however, underperformed, still did pretty huge numbers for a Telugu film, even ignoring the Hindi and Tamil versions. The rights were overpriced than what was the general expectations a few months back and this is the case with almost every big film in Tollywood, for that matter South India. The film also had to face the negative word of mouth, in fact, an additional negative campaign by Mumbai based media, but with the hype and stardom of Parbhas, the film was able to go in black, thanks to a pretty reasonable and calculated deal. This is not just the case with Saaho, the next biggie, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is getting even crazier rates. A more detailed story on the same on some other day.

    There’s always a brighter side, in fact, we have two. One and that’s a big one, Saaho has shown the big potential market for Tollywood and South India. Sure Saaho did great in North India, the actual north i.e. East Punjab and Delhi, which is a no-no for South Indian film, thanks to super-stardom of Prabhas, that for you is the second bright thing. The market that Tollywood needs to cater to is the Central and Eastern India. Bihar, East Uttar Pradesh, CI, and Odisha has done extraordinary business for the film. The business in these markets for Bollywood is awful, as the interiors are simply not getting the content they crave for. The problem lies with the fact, that these markets are single-screen dominated and Bollywood ain’t making a film to cater outside plexes This has been a pretty successful year for Bollywood, but no film has done well outside the 2000 odd plex screens, except Kabir Singh to an extent. The regional industries of these markets are very small and not able to provide the content & scale as well. There’s a huge window to cover and Tollywood can fill that if we market our films smartly in these territories. This will also be a boon for the exhibitors in these territories which are on verge of extinction.

    The immediate impact of Prabhas on Telugu stars

    0

    The film haven’t lived up to the expectations of critics, neither it got some classic moments that will live forever in time, but still, the craze of Prabhas is so high that it touched 400 crore mark easily at the box office. Looking at how Saaho worked, many Telugu stars are now trying to board Mumbai express.

    Keeping many of his prior commitments aside, right now Mahesh Babu is considering Prashant Neel’s pan-Indian script, which could become a solid debut for him in Bollywood. Mahesh is the one who has earlier rejected the idea of going to Bollywood, but now, he’s desperate to do a bilingual immediately.

    Though he is not fond of doing Bollywood films until he cemented his position in the Telugu film industry, young sensation Vijay Devarakonda has now changed his stand. He’s trying to get a foothold in Mumbai and making frequent visits to the city of dreams, hoping to find the right subject.

    Then we have Allu Arjun who has immense craze in Bollywood through his dubbed movies on YouTube. Realising that, he has recently turned up at Nikhil Advani’s various bashes and is eyeing to sizzle in a Hindi film soon. Also, he’s said to have asked Venu Sriram, the director of Icon movie, to make the film a pan-Indian movie.

    All these happenings could surely credited to the immediate impact Prabhas created with Saaho.

    Saaho 12 days Worldwide collections – Highest grossing Indian film of 2019

    Saaho has now emerged as highest-grossing Indian film of 2019 in both Domestic markets & worldwide. The film after 12 days of its run has grossed 392 cr gross worldwide making it surpass Kabir Singh which grossed 373 crores worldwide. Worldwide distributor share of the film now stands at 204.7 cr. The film got benefitted by Muharram holiday on its 12th day as the collections went up by 45 per cent in Telugu states and 30 per cent in the north. The film will now aim to cross 400 cr gross worldwide by the end of its 3rd weekend. As said before the film is a failure in all the versions except Hindi which is a Hit.

    Saaho effect: Prabhas’ makers to scout for affordable locations

    0

    Like it was discussed already, the disastrous result of Saaho is going to take a toll on Prabhas’ next film which is being produced by UV Creations along with Gopikrishna Movies of Krishnam Raju. So what are the budget cuts the makers want to implement?

    Prabhas’ next that is being directed by Radhakrishna of Jil movie fame is a love story set in Europe backdrop. Already they have shot for 20 days in places like Austria and Switzerland where the shooting expenses are quite high. In order to tone down the spending, we hear that team are scouting for affordable locations now.

    There are some Eastern European countries like Azerbaijan that are offering sooting locations and crews at dead cheap prices right now. And there are some countries that are giving huge incentives if the makers shoot for more than three weeks. They are returning almost 50% of the spending after submitting bills. Prabhas’ makers are exploring all such options now, such that the film will be made under the proposed budget.

    Meanwhile, Prabhas has other day met his fans at AMB Cinemas where he has turned up to catch a show of Saaho with them.

    Saaho has a low second weekend – 10 days AP/TS Collections

    Saaho has a low second weekend in the Telugu States with a distributor share of 3.80 Cr. 10 days total of the film now stands at 77.80 Cr. The film has actually shown good growth of 70% on it’s Sunday from Saturday but the numbers are still low for the costs involved. There is a partial holiday for the film tomorrow and that should help it to put some numbers.

    US box office : Saaho is a huge disaster

    Prabhas’ starrer Saaho is going to be a huge loss venture for its buyers in USA. By the end of the second weekend, the action saga managed to surpass the $ 3M mark in USA, but it is heading towards becoming a colossal disaster because the recovery is less than 50 percent of its investment.

    After taking a moderate start with disappointing premiers, the film failed to add strong numbers in the weekend and had an average first week as it managed only to notch up $ 2.87 M. Saaho needed a decent second weekend to minimise the losses for its buyers. But, the meagre footfalls in the second weekend have dented the hopes of buyers and they are now staring at huge losses. The film collected $ 55K and $ 96K on Friday and Saturday to surpass the $ 3M mark. The breakeven mark in USA is $ 6.5 M and the Tamil version hardly contributed to the tally.

    Prabhas’ previous films Baahubali 2 and Baahubali 1 were blockbuster hits in overseas. So, Saaho was sold for huge prices in all territories. But, the disappointing reviews and poor word of mouth have impacted the collections largely as it failed to perform on par with the high expectations.

    Directed by Sujeeth, the film is produced by UV Creations.

    SyeRaa makers taking cue from Saaho

    0

    Saaho is the biggest tentpole film of the season that released all over the country in multiple languages. It is performing well in the Hindi belt despite getting negative reviews. But, the Telugu version failed to maintain its momentum after the strong performance in first weekend. Due to over expectations, the film didn’t fetch the desired feedback from audience.

    The next mega budget film of the season is Chiranjeevi’s SyeRaa which is going to have a wide release in all territories. The makers of SyeRaa are very cautious not to repeat the mistakes commited by Saaho team before the release. Chiru is keenly overseeing all the production and promotional activities. He has already directed his team not to give unnecessary hype which may lead to high expectations. Producer Ram Charan is also making sure that there is no need to exaggerate the budget and grandeur of the film as audience will directly experience it on the screen. He wants to keep the promotions toned-down so that audience will go with open mind.

    Like Saaho, SyeRaa is projected as a pan-India film ever since it was launched. So, Ram Charan and Chiru are taking cue from the strategies of Saaho team to ensure SyeRaa is given only adequate publicity rather than trying for inflated buzz in media and audience. They have cut the trailer in such a way that it will generate the much needed hype in all languages. Saaho team didn’t promote the film after its release and it impacted the collections to some extent. Also, the ticket pricing for Saaho is very unreasonable in overseas. So, SyeRaa team is planning to avoid such gross mistakes which will have an effect on the collections.

    All in all, SyeRaa team has learnt many lessons from the debacle of Saaho and planning to avoid those mistakes to hit the bulls eye at the box office.

The film has come down big in Nizam where the drop is about 60% from 7th day. Overall collections in Telugu States are 40% down from 7th day. Today collections could be flat with some growth in Nizam and it needs to be seen how much the film will grow on Sunday.

    Saaho First Week AP/TS Collections – All Time Top 2

    Saaho has an average first week as the film has collected a distributor share of 74 Cr. This is all time Top 2 distributor share for any film in Telugu States. As mentioned earlier the collections are actually good for a normal biggie but the prices paid by distributors are high which makes it average. The film is bought on NRA basis in East & West areas where the distributors are going to loose at least 3.5 Cr. You would ask that the film is released on advance basis in rest of the areas but the exhibitors there are also going to loose big time. The film has an open second week & a holiday on Tuesday which will make it to have steady collections at lower level in it’s second week.

    Sujeeth respects critics, gives a matured reply on Saaho

    0

    Prabhas’ Saaho has set the cash registers ringing at the worldwide box office in its first week despite low ratings from critics. Director Sujeeth interacted with media for the first time after the film’s release and shared his working experience and the feedback he received from various corners of the country. Sujeeth is very amazed with the reception of the film in states like Bihar where it is running with packed screens.

    Reacting on the slew of poor reviews that followed the film’s release, Sujeeth said he has immense respect towards critics and reviewers. He said the same reviewers praised his debut film Run Raja Run and made it a blockbuster at box office. He added it is their duty to analyse the film and give an opinion about it. He also suggested that review writers should have waited for some more time before giving their feedback on big ticket films like Saaho as the play a significant role in bringing neutral audience to theatres. There are many instances when reviews helped good films perform well at ticket windows, concluded Sujeeth. He also laughed off rumours that the story of Saaho was lifted off from French film Largo Winch.

    Saaho is Sujeeth’s second film in his career. The film received huge patronage from North audience and appreciation poured in for his stylish narration.

    Prabhas has a promise for Saaho makers

    Young Rebelstar Prabhas tested his luck with Saaho and the film fetched negative reviews. After a decent weekend, the collections dropped down badly during the weekdays. Prabhas lauded UV Creations for their efforts and the money they pumped out on the film. With buyers losing big amounts, the makers are now in plans to return back the losses to them soon.

    Prabhas assured to return back apart from his remuneration if needed. Producers Dil Raju and Allu Aravind stepped into the scene to rescue the film in last minute and they paid Rs 35 crores for the financiers. As it takes some time to get the final numbers of Saaho, Prabhas is even ready to sign a film for Allu Aravind and Dil Raju if UV Creations fail to return their amount. The actor returned back from his London holiday and will join the shoot of Jaan this month. Radha Krishna Kumar is the director and Pooja Hegde is the female lead.

    US box office : With an average weekend, Saaho heading towards a disaster

    0

    While its domestic earnings are very strong, Telugu biggie Saaho is staring at huge losses in North America as it ended the first weekend on an average note. The film opened moderately in USA with $ 862K from its Thursday premiers. Poor planning by distribution house is cited as the major reason for such an ordinary start to a film with massive expectations. It managed to emerge as the sixth highest opener for a Telugu film in USA.

    After an underwhelming start, Saaho failed to gain any momentum in the weekend due to awful reviews and poor word of mouth. On Friday and Saturday, the film earned respectable gross with $ 486K and $ 427K respectively. But, these numbers are not enough to put the film in safe as the break even mark is close to $ 6M. With Sunday’s $ 314K and Monday’s $ 196K, the film surpassed the $ 2.2 M mark in USA. Combined with Canada’s $ 342K haul in the first weekend, the overall North America gross stands at $ 2.6 M.

    As the film recouped less than half of its investment by the end of Monday, it is likely to end as a huge disaster in North America.

    Directed by Sujeeth, Saaho is produced by UV Creations.

    Saaho fumbles big time with post-release promotions

    0

    A film is as good as its promotions in this digital era, as social media presence is the new talk-of-mouth. Understanding that, one of the biggest Telugu film ‘Saaho’ is well promoted by Prabhas all alone, taking some occasional support from Shraddha Das and others.

    What startles everyone at the moment is how Saaho makers fumbled with post-release promotions as the Prabhas is seen nowhere in the media, for the past five days. Had the Baahubali star taken the mantle of handling critics, talking about footfalls in theatres and trying to create a sort of alternate-talk for the film after the release, the buzz would have been better.

    Some reports indicate that Prabhas went on a much needed detox tour after a marathon promotion blitzkrieg that lasted for a month. But adding one more week to the blitz would have helped Saaho better, as the film collected only 164 crores share in 4 days run, and collect 110 crores more to reach a breakeven stage.

    At the same time, other than Prabhas, no other star from Saaho including director Sujeeth or producers are promoting the film in any manner other than releasing some posters that feature highlighted ‘collection’ figures. Time to gather all the energy and push the film for a couple of weeks such that it makes the most before other biggies hit the marquee.

    Saaho has a big But Average Weekend – 4 days Worldwide Collections

    Saaho has a big extended weekend worldwide as the film has collected a distributor share of 164 Cr. But the overall collections are average considering the rates for which the film is sold. The film did good business in North India and decent in the Telugu States to an extent. Next, best is Karnataka with recovery nearing 50 percent at least. But the story is entirely different in Tamil Nadu and Kerala as the film will recover 40 percent of the investments in the best case. The film is already a disaster in Tamil Nadu & Kerala.

    Coming to the overseas the film did best in Gulf even dominating North America which is a huge market for Telugu films. The film has grossed 2.65 Million individually by the end of Monday in these markets. Remaining markets have contributed about 2.35 Million taking total overseas gross to 7.65 Million. The distributor share of the film in Overseas is about 25 cr which is about 60% recovery. The distributor is most likely to end up with 10 cr loss here.
