US box office is going through a dull phase due to lack of big ticket releases. This week, two low budget films released amid good expectations. While Mallesham is having a moderate run, humourous detective thriller Agent Sai Srinivas Atreya is pulling in decent revenues in the first weekend.
ASSA started off slowly with $ 16K from premiers and had a good jump on Friday with $ 28K. As the reviews are encouraging and the word of mouth is positive, the film is set to surpass the $ 100K mark by the end of weekend. On Saturday, the film is projected to collect close to $ 40K. This is reasonably a good run for a film with low budget and new star cast.
The intriguing whodunit premise dosed with hilarious dialogues are getting appreciation from audience. Naveen Polishetty, the lead actor in the film, bagged brownie points for his performance. Directed by Swaroop RSJ the film is produced by Rahul Dev Nakka.
