Mahesh Babu’s Brahmotsavam has failed to set new records for the first day collection at the Andhra and Telangana (AP/T) box office. Released in over 900 screens in the two states, the Telugu movie has been hit by bad word-of-mouth and rainy weather. As a result, the Tollywood film, which was expected to break several box office records, has failed to create a history. The box office numbers are still being compiled and the makers are expected to reveal the numbers very soon. But early estimates suggests Brahmotsavam has earned around Rs. 13 crore from the AP/T regions, Andhra Box Office reported.
Due to mixed response of audience, on third day despite being Saturday the movie faced heavy drop in its business graph and added the amount of 7 cr* to it account. After 2 days, total collection of Brahmotsavam is recorded as 20.20 cr* from Andhra Pradesh & Telangana. Being holiday, Sunday is expected to result in slightly higher business but afterwards it will witness more drops because of unfavorable audience response.
Brahmotsavam had got a good response for advance booking and the trade experts had predicted the movie to do rocking business on the first day at the box office. Looking at the craze around the flick, single screen exhibitors had additional shows in the morning to meet the demand. But what should have turned out to be an advantage for the Mahesh Babu’s film became a spoilsport as the movie carried largely negative reviews from the first shows. Apparently, this had an impact on the film at the box office.
