Weekend BO: Kantara takes a stunning start

The film trade is the most unpredictable business. Now and then, a film comes from nowhere and surprises all. ‘Kantara’ is the latest film. Nobody heard about this film in Telugu states till a month ago. Rishab Shetty, the film’s lead actor, is unknown to Telugu audiences. Still, ‘Kantara’ took a stunning start in the Telugu states, posting houseful boards at many places.

Released on October 15, the dubbed film from Kannada became the first choice for audiences on Saturday and Sunday in AP and Telangana. ‘Kantara’ has collected Rs 4.5 Crore share in just two days in AP and Telangana. The film is a surprise hit. The reviews have also helped it.

On the other hand, new releases like Aadi Sai Kumar’s ‘Crazy Fellow’ could not attract audiences. Another film, Boyfriend for Hire, saw zero openings. 

Megastar Chiranjeevi’s ‘Godfather’ has not added much to its kitty in the second weekend. The film’s run has almost come to an end.
