Geetanjali- Unmindful of mixed response and despite critics panned it as more of a comedy than horror flick, but Kona Venkat’s Geetanjali is doing well all over seemandhra and Nizam. Actress Anjali’s maiden female-oriented film has connected with viewer for his good humour and few tense moments. In the first week, the film has garnered more than 1.75 crores in Nizam and 1.5 cror in Seemandhra and 80 laksh in Ceded and its expected to do better in second week too.

Sikandar- Another new release is dubbed film “Sikandar’ but Sury’a charisma is unable to pull in crowds in both regions and couldn’t garner even minimum openings, despite Surya’s earlier hits. The don story just managed to draw 1 crore plus on first day and sources claims that it will have been a winner, due to predictable plot and turning into risky proposition.

“Gaalipatam”, Despite producer Sampathi nandi pumping in big money to promote his new-age film but audience haven’t really taken it seriously and the bold theme is affected with unconvincing logic and it just managed to draw 50 to 60 laksh in the first week and it could be a losing proposition for producer and buyers.

“Lovrers”, Despite producer Maruthi’s brand name, the film didn’t get big openings, so it will take time to judge its performance at the box offiice and unfortunately for Sumanth Ashwin, after a hit film “Anthakamundu…’, he should be hoping to score a hit, but it hasn’t started well.
