The recent release Mangalavaaram has had a disappointing run at the box office over its first three days, with the World Cup final on Sunday significantly impacting its performance. Despite typically being the best day for small or medium-budget films, Mangalavaram’s first Sunday collections were extremely low, dropping by more than 50% from the previous day. This poor performance is a major setback for the film’s makers, as the Telugu states collections were particularly dismal.
The total worldwide box office share for Mangalavaaram’s first weekend is estimated to be around 5 crores, with a theatrical valuation of 13 crores. In the absence of the World Cup final, the film was expected to collect around 3 crores, but the actual collections are significantly lower, putting buyers in a precarious position. The film’s performance today will be crucial in determining its overall success or failure. If Mangalavaaram continues to struggle, the buyers are likely to face significant losses.
