After Ram Charan’s Rangasthalam and Mahesh Babu’s Bharat Ane Nenu, the third much-awaited Telugu film of the year Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India starring Allu Arjun is all set to hit the screens on Friday. Directed by the debutant Vakkantam Vamsi, it’s an action film has high pre-release buzz across the globe.
Opposite to the stylish star Allu Arjun, NSNI stars Anu Emmanuel as a leading lady who was last seen in Pawan Kalyan starrer Agnyaathavaasi. Due to solid star power, the film has good hype among fans and expected to take a terrific opening across the Telugu states.
Arjun’s previous film Duvvada Jagannadham took an excellent opening of 18.40 crores (shares) from Andhra Pradesh & Telangana. As per reports, Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India is buzzing on a lower note than DJ, also IPL 2018 and the Hollywood biggie Avengers Infinity War (dubbed Telugu) are there, so it seems to open in a range of 15-16 crores (shares).
Alongside NSNI, two noticeable Hindi films are also being released at the box office- 102 Not Out and Omerta. Umesh Shukla’s directorial slice-of-life comedy-drama 102 Not Out has brought the megastar Amitabh Bachchan and the evergreen Rishi Kapoor together on-screen after 27 years.
This film is getting positive reviews from the critics after the premieres, all of them have found it very delightful. Although IPL 2018 and Avengers Infinity War will play spoilsport for 102 Not Out, still it targets major segment of the audience and expected to open decently in a range of 3-4 crores. Definitely, it will grow over the weekend, if audience reacts in favour.
On the other hand, Omerta is a biographical crime drama starring Rajkummar Rao in a lead role. Directed by Hansal Mehta, it has a low commercial value and expected to open in a range of 0.50-0.60 crore at the domestic box office.
