Vijay Devarakonda has once again proved his capability at the US box office as his latest film Dear Comrade notched up half a million dollars gross in less than two days. The intense drama, directed by Bharat Kamma, opened on a strong note with $ 300K from its Thursday premiers. This is the second-best opener for Vijay Devarakonda after Geetha Govindham ( $403K) and third-highest premiers of 2019 after Maharshi and NTR Kathanayakudu.
After a fairly good start from premiers, Dear Comrade collected $ 157K on Friday and joined the million-dollar club by Saturday morning. The film needs a strong Weekend to put buyers in a safe zone. Vijay’s craze in overseas will be put to test because the film received below par reviews and word of mouth. If Dear Comrade can perform well despite the weak talk, Vijay can definitely be termed as one of the reliable actors of the current generation at the box office. He earned a solid fan base in the US after his previous films set the cash registers ringing with sensational box office run.
