Chiranjeevi’s Waltair Veerayya and Nandamuri Balakrishna’s Veera simha Reddy squared off at the sankranti celebration. Balakrishna’s openings were recorded by Veera simha Reddy as the finest of his career, and Day 1 records were set everywhere. But that wasn’t for very long. Waltair Veerayya, which debuted a day later and faced fierce competition, undoubtedly had an influence. Trade analysts claim that Veera simha Reddy’s collections have been hurt by theatre sharing.
The Nizam region is frequently referred to as the key market when analysing box office results. Balakrishna’s Veera simha Reddy got Rs 10.2 Crore in three days from Nizam. Chiranjeevi’s Waltair Veerayya, in contrast, made Rs 11.6 crore in two days. Waltair Veerayya is demonstrating its unmistakable supremacy, whether it be in Uttarandhra, West Godavari, Krishna, Guntur, or Ceded. Waltair Veerayya has the advantage in the states that speak Telugu. Both movies have gotten mixed reactions and reviews. However, the movies’ box office success outperformed the critics.
Waltair Veerayya is the winner globally as well. It earned over 1.73 million USD in the first weekend in the USA. Veera simha Reddy, a character played by Balakrishna, made nearly $1 million in the opening weekend. In the meantime, telugu audiences found Vijay’s Vaarasudu to be a tremendous failure. The movie received negative reviews for its meagre content, which excluded family sentiment. The start of the movie was likewise not very strong. In telugu, Ajith’s Thegimpu too met its demise.
Kalyanam Kamaneeyam by santosh sobhan only received a limited distribution. The discussion of routine content appears to be a significant hurdle for the movie to clear. With this, Veera simha Reddy and Waltair Veerayya were left as the only options for audiences during this holiday season.
