Nearly Rs. 130 crore is riding on Mahesh Babu’s action thriller Spyder that was made in two languages.
The film is expected to take the box office by storm, but turned out to be a ‘rare dud’ from ace director Murugadoss. Spyder had a very average first weekend (5 days) in spite of festival holidays.
Spyder is yet to break into the Rs. 50 crore (share) club (two languages included), which is disastrous considering the costs involved.
Spyder is having a decent Monday (Gandhi Jayanti) across Telugu states, but it is not enough for the film to reach the breakeven mark that is far, far away from this point.
Things will get tougher and bleaker from Tuesday as the holiday season comes to an end. Thankfully, there will not be any new films to hit the screens on this Friday, which will give another weekend to cash in on.
Spyder failed to appeal to the families and youth, the sections that are a major draw for a Mahesh starrer.
Spyder will end up as a big flop unless it shows a miraculous rise in the coming days. That looks near impossible at the moment.
