Kick takes bumper openings

Monday, 11 May, 2009, 05:24

The drought at Andhra Box-office seems to be coming to an end. After months of no show at Box-office, Ravi Teja’s Kick has taken a flying start and has brought cheers to the film industry. This action entertainer laced with comedy is doing strong business. The weekend collections are so bright and it is one of the best openings in Ravi Teja’s career. Illeana, the numero uno female star in Tollywood, has struck gold again after Jalsa. On the other hand, Balakrishna’s Mitrudu is still struggling to attract audience. The movie is not a disaster like the recent Balakrishna movies but still fail to get enough collections. The film is now at second place. Prabhas’s Billa is still going strong and occupies third place. Surya’s much publicized Veedokkade, dubbed version of his Tamil hit, Ayan, is doing good business at the multiplexes. Jagapathi Babu’s political drama, Adhineta, has struck chord with the B and C audiences. In rural areas, Adhineta is very strong and bags the fifth place at Box-office. Note : Ratings are based on the box office collections and the cost of the film
