Cheliyaa 1st Day: Disappointing Start
Veteran director Mani Ratnam’s latest offering ‘Cheliyaa’ opened to below par reviews and disappointing box office numbers in the Telugu states.
The romantic drama starring Karthi and charming Aditi Rao Hydari could rake in only a meager share of Rs 60 lakhs in the Telugu states.
Below is the area wise break-up of share.
Nizam – 22,00,000
Ceded – 10,00,000
Nellore – 2,75,000
Guntur – 4,50,000
Krishna – 4,81,000
East – 5,50,000
West – 3,70,000
Uttharandhra – 6,50,000
Total 1st day AP & TG Share – 60 lakhs
Although the film was praised for its astounding visuals and technical finesse, the dull screenplay made the film a tiring watch. The IPL fever and the strong run of Guru might also prove deterrents for Cheliyaa at box office.
