Trade: Breakeven Figures For Dussera Releases

Trade: Breakeven Figures For Dussera Releases

All the three Dussera films are out in theaters and the public verdict for these films is loud and clear.

While Jai Lava Kusa turned out to be an average fare, Spyder is heading for a big flop.

Last of the Dussera films to hit the marquee is Mahanubhavudu, which is carrying better word of mouth among all.

Let’s take a look at how much these films need to breakeven in the overseas circuit.

Spyder was sold for Rs.15.5 crore and it needs to collect nearly $3.5 Million in US to keep the buyers safe. Grossing at least $2 Million looks unlikely at this point. The film needs a miracle to reach the halfway mark, let alone breaking even.

Thanks to director Bobby’s track record, Jai Lava Kusa rights were bought for relatively less price (Rs. 8.5 crore) compared to other biggies. The film fetched nearly Rs. 2 crore from other markets and needs to recover Rs. 6.5 crore from USA.

It needs to gross $ 2.1 Million to breakeven and it is currently nearning $ 1.5 Million mark. Collections have crashed big time that breakeven looks near impossible unless there is a sudden growth over the weekend.

Mahanubhavudu also was bought for Rs. 3.25 crore considering Sharwanand and Maruthi’s track record. The film needs to gross $1.1 Million in US to breakeven.

It had a very ordinary start at the box office and needs to do wonderful business through the weekend to go anywhere close to the Million dollar mark.
