Sye Raa box office collection Day 1: Megastar Chiranjeevi is happy to see the responses for his newly released movie Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, which hit the theatres on Oct 2. The film, directed by Surender Reddy, is based on the life of Telugu independence fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy.
The movie opened to real responses from audience and critics. On Sye Raa box office collection Day 1, the period drama has led to rake in Rs 25 lakh in Hyderabad RTC X Roads on its opening day.
The pre-booking purchases of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy seemed promising, and business pundits predicted that the movie would gross $1 million from the beginning and opening day shows in the US. As expected, the film has crossed the $1 million (Rs 7 crore) mark in North America and is yet going strong.
Also, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy has done exceptionally well in Chennai. The Tamil and Telugu version of the film collectively has raked in Rs 32 lakh with the Telugu version earning Rs 25 lakh and Tamil dubbed version earning Rs 7 lakh.
India Today analyst Janani K rated the film 3 out of 5 stars and wrote, “The major flaw of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is that it’s too formulaic. You can roughly guess what’s going to happen and with a runtime of 2 hours and 47 minutes, the movie is a tad little long. The cameo by Anushka Shetty looks forced. It is as though she has been forced into the movie only to write praises of Narasimha Reddy.”
Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy claims an outfit cast including Chiranjeevi, Amitabh Bachchan, Nayanthara, Tamannaah, Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi, Jagapathi Babu and Brahmaji in pivotal roles.
