Spyder has been losing revenues in Telugu states. Despite releasing amidst high expectations, the collections of the film had fallen since the matinee show on the very first day.
Right now, buyers are still being hopeful that the collections might pick up after festival, but this is unlikely feel trade analysts.
On the other hand, the film has been getting good talk in Tamil and the collections are definitely better out there. Since Mahesh in not a big star in Tamil, the film is being judged on its strengths and this has helped the film in Tamil.
On the other hand, showcasing Mahesh as a common man has marred the expectations of fans and audiences in Telugu.
The entire team focused on the Tamil entry of Mahesh and both the hero and Murugadoss promoted the film in a big way there. They hoped that Mahesh's stardom will help the film here. But they did not take care to prepare his fans as Mahesh plays a common man in the film, which does not reflect his star status.
Since it was a Murugadoss' film, there were high expectations that the film will have some heavy duty action and a thrilling spy game.
But the film ended up being villain SJ Suryah's show and the Telugu fans were disappointed. Also, the trailer showing artificial spider upped expectations. Such wrong moves impacted the film and like Khaleja, 1-Nenokkadine, bad packaging is showing on the results.
