Out of the three Telugu films that released this Friday, only C/o Kancharapalem is showing signs of sustaining at overseas box office in the first weekend.
C/o Kancharapalem is made on a very little budget and has all-new stars directed by a debutant. But, the rave reviews from special premiers came in very handy as the film managed to take a decent opening in overseas among other releases. The film collected $ 55K on its first day including premiers and showed good growth in numbers towards the first weekend. As of this writing, the total gross of the film surpassed the $ 120K mark.
Another unconventional film that released this Friday is Manu. Like C/o Kancharapalem, Manu also garnered good buzz prior to its release because of the aggressive promotions and intriguing trailers, but it didn’t convert into box office figures as the content didn’t appeal to all sections of audience. The film collected insignificant numbers on Friday and Saturday.
Allari Naresh and Sunil starrer Silly Fellows couldn’t excite overseas audience and the openings are very dismal.
