Mahesh Babu, Kajal, Samantha, Pranitha, starrer Brahmotsavam could not reach the target set by the makers at USA Boxoffice .
The much hyped film was released with unprecedented pre-release promotions , over a week and released in record numbers of locations in USA.
The movie opened with a Bad talk and the collections failed to prove Mahesh babu’s stamina at Overseas. Mahesh considered as King of overseas failed to cross his own record set by his previous film Srimanthudu for the first day.
Brahmotsavam has just managed to gross $556,000 through USA Premiers to stand at second place among Mahesh films and third among non-baahubali films at USA BO. On Friday the number dropped further to settled at $241k taking the total to $797k .
On Saturday, Brahmotsavam shocked the trade circles , who predicted good numbers and predicted range 1.2-1.5M in full run . But Brahmotsavam reportedly collected $120k , taking the total to $910k by saturday.
Even disaster films like Aagadu and 1 Nenokkadine have collected some respectable numbers during first weekend. but Brahmotsavam has become Mother of disasters in USA as the breakeven for the film is $3.5 Million.
There’s a huge cry among local exhibitors for betting high amount in Brahmotsavam. Highly Overpriced movies in OS ended up in huge losses for buyers. At Least now, they should open eyes & bid as per the market rate.
