Which films show potential to pass Monday test?
Five films were released last weekend on 20th December, 3 Telugu and 2 other languages. Each one aimed at becoming a blockbuster to enjoy the fruits of a long weekend.
The reviews and audiences' word of mouth about each film is out. So, which film showed enough potential to break the box office dullness over the next weekend and weekdays?
Around the same time last year, Zero failed to connect with audiences but KGF Chapter 1 became a huge success. Telugu films failed to even register decent openings, as the word of mouth was negative for both the films after day one.
This year - Dabangg 3, Ruler and Donga seems to have no chance at recovery at all. They have failed to attract audiences on Sunday, while Hindi market for Dabangg 3 will help it sustain this holiday season. Still, it won't be profitable, says box office pundits.
So, Prathi Roju Pandage seems to be a film that will have some legs till 2nd January, when the entire holidays will be over. Interestingly, Venky Mama did not pick up over it's second weekend, even though other releases failed to impress audiences.
