Collections: Rakshasudu Is Decent Here, Scary In US

Apparently, the word of mouth has grown stronger for Bellamkonda Srinivas' latest movie Rakshasudu which got average to above-average ratings from critics. And that led to a good collections in AP and Telangana, but the young hero continued to get shocker abroad.

On the conclusion of the first weekend, Rakshasudu has made 5.8+ crores 'share' from Telugu states alone, thus becoming a good weekend for the movie. Earlier his disasters like Kavacham have made 4+ crores share in the first weekend with flop talk and Rakshasudu posted better than that. But rains might have hampered the collections big time here.

Cut to the USA, the film made $84K gross in the first weekend, thus giving around Rs 25+ lakhs crores share to the distributor. For a film that was brought for around 70 lakhs, this is quite a low figure, as weekdays will be quite uninteresting for films in the overseas market. Also, the arrival of Manmadhudu 2 next Friday might complete pip Rakshasudu there.

Trade analysts feel that somehow Bellamkonda hasn't promoted the movie big time, unlike an Ismart Shankar or Oh Baby. Such promotions might have helped this thriller score more runs in the NRI zone. On a concluding note, we have to say that Rakshasudu collections are decent here, but scary in the USA.
