NTR Kathanayakudu, the first part of NTR biopic is out in the theatres on Wednesday. The film had premieres in the USA on Tuesday. Usually, the makers will find it tough to expect the audiences to attend the premieres on a weekday but the buyers of NTR were confident that there will be a decent number of foot-falls. Since it was Tuesday, there will be an offer in purchasing the tickets. For one ticket, the audiences will get another ticket for free.
Considering this, the makers expected that the film will make a million dollar easily at the box-office. Unfortunately, the film started off on a dull note and ended up reaching only half of the target. The trade experts said that the film collected only an amount around half-a-million dollar and it is the best opening for Balakrishna in his career.
Still, it is a huge risk for the buyers considering the price at which they brought the movie for. Hence, the movie has to perform really well to reach the breakeven point.
Most of the audiences in the USA are youth who are having absolutely less interest and curiosity to know the life history of NTR because of which there are less foot-falls.
