Guntur Kaaram Movie Success Meet Event
Guntur Kaaram is a huge commercial success, family crowds are loving it, says producer S Naga Vamsi
Guntur Kaaram, the family entertainer, directed by Trivikram, starring Mahesh Babu, Sreeleela, Meenakshi Chaudhary in the lead, is off to a fantastic start at the box office with crowds enjoying the motherson sentiment, humour, music and action segments. As the film collects over Rs 212 crores worldwide, producer S Naga Vamsi, on behalf of Haarika and Hassine Creations, shared his happiness.
The film has completed a weeks run and is performing well at the box office. It has reached a break even stage across most areas. There was a little anxiety initially, but family audiences and regular crowds have completely enjoyed the motherson sentiment and helped our revenue.
We felt the film wasnt projected properly, may be we couldve avoided the 1 am show, but it gained steam eventually. There was no compromise on quality despite the time pressure. It is truly the content that has reached out to viewers. There was a negative campaign but it overcame it and put up a good show.
Mahesh Babu has been positive about the film since day one, he asked us not to worry and his judgement paid off. Its his trust that gave us a lot of confidence. His presence won over masses and family crowds alike. We are very happy with the collections. Trivikram (garu) will also be giving an interview in the coming week.
There was a campaign identified by Book My Show where a few bots rated the film without watching it. Well receive a response soon. In retrospect we shouldve promoted it as a family, motherson drama, people perhaps perceived it as a mass film. Were planning to host a success meet shortly. Reviews havent altered the films prospects. The collections weve reported are genuine.
Athadu and Khaleja were genrebased films. Guntur Kaaram is a commercial film released for the festival season and has ensured profits for most parties involved. Its unfair to call it a oneman show. While Mahesh Babu delivered a fabulous performance, Trivikram deserves credit for extracting his potential to the fullest.
