The moment the news broke out that, Pawan Kalyan and Trivikram Srinivas are teaming up, buyers (distributors) from around the state competed to purchase the distribution rights of the film. Naturally, the stardom and fan following of Pawan Kalyan, the reputation of Director Trivikram Srinivas and the Industry hit of ‘Attarintiki Daredi’ which came in the combination of PK-Trivikram shot the price of the theatrical rights to an all-time high. The movie’s theatrical rights were reportedly sold for Rs.95 crores in Telugu states alone. Even the US premiers collected close to $1.2M.
But shockingly, the film opened with mixed reviews, with few even question Trivikram’s credibility as the director. Everyone expected the film to break all Non-Baahubali records. Disappointingly, the film did not live up to its expectations. Be it because of the inspired (copied) story, or poor narration, or whatever, the film remained as any other commercial flick.
Now, the buyers who have shelled large sums for the theatrical rights are left in the middle of the sea. The buyers and distributors are nowhere to be seen in the media, claiming record collections. Trade analysts predict, the loss to be massive, especially in areas regions like Nizam and north-coastal Andhra Pradesh. It is reported, the losses are expected to be around Rs. 75 crores. The buyers are hoping that Pawan Kalyan might come to their rescue, after all, he is the only reason for them to shell out massive sums for the movie.
