Magadheera still rules BO

Monday, 14 September, 2009, 04:42

Magadheera is still ruling the box-office even after completing 40 days. All set for new records, the film might emerge as the biggest ever blockbuster in Tollywood. On the other hand, the recent releases in Tollywood have failed to cheer up the distributors. Even the much anticipated and heavily publicized top star Nagarjuna’s son Naga Chaitanya’s debut flick, Josh, bombed. The film was produced by Dil Raju, who is known for his Midas-Touch, got the shock of life as this is the only major flop in his entire career. What’s shocking is that Josh could not even attract the audience in the very first week. It is now declared a flop. Last week’s release, Shankam, has earned bad reviews but the openings are better. The first three days collections are impressive but it remains to be seen if it would sustain in the long run. Vikram’s Mallanna and Ravi Teja’s Anjaneyulu stood at the 4th and 5th position respectively. Note : Ratings are based on the box office collections and the cost of the film
