When two films of similar range clash at the box office, the film that can attract the masses will surely come out on top.
Same is the case with Christmas clash at the box office because MCA is going great guns with the support of the masses and Hello is struggling to hold its ground.
After a disappointing start at the box office, Hello failed to pick up on its second day. In fact there is a huge drop in day 2 collections of Hello, which is a worrying sign for its makers and buyers.
They will be hoping that it would capitalize on holidays on Sunday and Monday to sign off its first weekend on a decent note.
Nani’s recent run, Sai Pallavi’s craze and Dil Raju’s strategic release plan has put MCA ahead of the competition.
The film’s opening is too good that it will sure be a safe venture even if there is a drop after the holiday season.
On the other hand, Hello came out with low expectations as Akhil’s first film was a dud and Vikram Kumar is not so popular with the mass audience.
Not just in B and C centers, Hello is even facing the heat of MCA in A centers and overseas where its business is surely being affected due to tough opposition.
Did Nagarjuna make a mistake by pitting Hello against MCA? Most of the trade analysts believe it is indeed a mistake.
