No matter how big the openings might be, 100 Percent Recovery within the First Weekend is almost impossible for a Star-Studded Flick. 'Aravindha Sametha' collected a Share of Rs 68 crore by Sunday, That's a solid figure for a film with Worldwide Theatricals valued for Rs 91 crore. Still, How long it will take to achieve a break-even remians a big mystery.
The fate of any biggie will be judged based on the revenues generated on First Monday. Unfortunately, Collections of 'Aravindha Sametha' were as low as 25 percent for the Morning Shows in several areas.
In Hyd's RTC X Roads, 'Aravindha Sametha' was screened in four theatres. Only Sudarshan managed housefulls throughout the Weekend and occupancy in rest of the three theatres is anywhere between 70 to 90 percent. The occupancy dropped drastically even after removing one of the theatres on Monday. While Rs 1.25 lakh is guaranteed for Housefull of Sudarshan Theatre, Monday Morning Show generated just about Rs 33,198. While Rs 26,788 was collected at Sandhya Theatre, Gross in Tarakarama Theatre is only Rs 8,959.
Collections might pick up at some point in future due to the Dussehra Holidays. Or else, The going gets really tough for 'Aravindha Sametha' with two new releases (Hello Guru Prema Kosame, Pandem Kodi 2) arriving on October 18th.
