Aagadu: After garnering more than Rs 22 crore in the first 3 days of its release, superstar Mahesh Babu couldn’t establish even first week collection record and in the upcoming holidays the film is expected to just make around Rs 3 to 4 core with great difficulty (Since it has been taken out of more than 200-odd theatres). Was it the sign of waning magic of Mahesh Babu or reckless script of Sreenu Vytla, whose overconfidence, that audience could watching any crap in the name of comedy, surely backfired. Only saving grace for the viewers is some punchlines. On whole, it’s clear that Brand ‘Mahesh’ couldn’t save Aagadu from debacle.

Loukyam: After few flops, actor Gopichand gets a breather as his latest comic-caper “Loukyam” garnered good openings and expected to make more than Rs 5.5 core in one week to reach the safer zone riding on  holiday crowds  this Dussera. Gopichand, who does lot of action usually, has to tickle the laughing bones, to draw audience, to the theatres and succeeded.

Power: Even though, Ravi Teja’s action film lost the momentum, but it would cross Rs 20 crore mark this festival but falls short of a making profits to distributors, as they could lose 30% of their investments. But Ravi would have preferred a much bigger collections, but still his stocks have sustained.
