Nandamuri Balakrishna’s Mahanayakudu, the second part of prestigious NTR biopic, is heading towards becoming a colossal disaster at the US box office. The film, which released last Friday amidst low expectations, is performing very badly in the first weekend due to the poor response from overseas audience.
After taking a dull start with a disappointing $ 100K from Thursday premiers, NTR Mahanayakudu showed no signs of improvement towards the weekend. With Friday’s $ 40K and Saturday’s $ 25k ( as of this writing ) , the film is set to become a huge box office dud in overseas. The first part tanked heavily in overseas as it failed to surpass even the million dollar mark in its full run despite a decent start. Due to this, the expectations on the second part are very low.
Trade circles are shell shocked looking at the dismal performance of this prestigious biopic which is directed by Krish Jagarlamudi. The biopic is made in two parts to showcase the political journey and cinema life of NTR, but due to lack of emotional connect in the story, both films failed to strike a chord with all sections of audience.
