'Dookudu'- Beating 'Magadheera' In Collections?

The much awaited movie ‘Dookudu’ has finally hit the screens and it appears that it is bouncing with a bang.

Though the film has received average reviews by critics, the response and collections have been very promising. Industry insiders feel this will break the jinx of original Telugu films not working at the box office.

Box office pundits are predicting that ‘Dookudu’ will turn out to be the biggest hit in terms of collections history of Tollywood. As such, the openings have shown thumping collections.

So far, the highest collections in this year have gone for ‘Mr Perfect’ followed by ‘Kandireega’ and then ‘100% Love’. Even ‘Badrinath’ to an extent made some collections. Going by the current trend, ‘Dookudu’ will beat all of them comfortably and runs ahead to beat all time industry hits Pokiri and Magadheera. Thanks to long vacations.

Among the upcoming straight films, the only competition ‘Dookudu’ has is in the form of ‘Oosaravelli’ and ‘Rajanna’. There is also ‘Srirama Rajyam’ but it will not fit into this genre of banging the box office. For now, the coast is clear till the next two weeks for ‘Dookudu’ and since the talk is positive, it has all potential to become the highest collection maker of the industry because of 80 percent of theatres were occupied by it.

Already the trade reports are coming from Guntur, Vizag, Nellore and Tirupathi that Magadheera record is going to be broken by Dookudu within first 3 days.

Coming to the figures, Magadheera made a gross of around Rs 4.5 Cr in USA and now ‘Dookudu’ is expected to make Rs 6.5 crore very comfortably.

At home, the first day collection itself was 12 Cr 56 lacks which is whopping and crossed the first day collection of ‘Magadheera’. Even though Oosaravelli gets hit talk, it can lift the advantage of vacations just for 4 days. But Dookudu is enjoying the advantage from release date Sep 23rd to Oct 10th.

Mahesh Babu’s potentiality is proved again.
