US box office : Mediocre start for new releases


This Friday, three notable films released amidst strong expectations from trade circles and audience. While Anthariksham and Padi Padi Leche Manasu are two Telugu films which hit the screens today, Kannada magnum opus KGF also got a wide release at the US box office.

All three films couldn’t get jump start as they opened with mediocre collections on premiers day. Varun Tej’s space thriller Anthariksham led the pack of releases with $ 81K and Sharwanand’s romantic entertainer Padi Padi Leche Manasu managed to collect only $ 67K. With $ 54K, KGF also started on an average note at the US box office. All films have opened to average and below average talk from premiers and the web reviews are also below par.

Trade circles have pinned a lot of hopes on these new releases after the dull phase. The long weekend followed by Christmas holiday will be an added advantage for these three films. Will they sustain at the box office with average talk ? We have to wait and see.
