Tollywood box office always throws big surprises at the audience. One of the biggest surprises in recent times is the film Pelli SandaD. Director K Raghavender Rao, in his late 70s, made sure to shake the box office with his Midas touch. From gaining a flop talk to scoring a big success, Pelli SandaD cracked a unique achievement.
Pelli SandaD is the modern version of the super hit old film Pelli Sandadi, originally directed by the veteran filmmaker K Raghavender Rao. Srikanth played the lead role in the old film and his son Roshann Mekja played the lead role in this modern version. Sreeleela made her debut as a heroine in the movie.
On the occasion of Dusshera, the film was released at the box office without any expectations. However, the film surprised the trade by ringing the right bells at the ticket windows. The initial reviews of the film are negative and then the talk has changed completely. Now, the film has scored a hit talk.
The film collected revenue of 5.5 Cr in the first week. Slowly, the collections got better over time. However, the film is still not performing well at the Overseas box office.
The reports say that the film already made a breakeven in both the Telugu states. The film also cracked interesting deals with satellite rights and digital rights.
At a time when it has become tough to pull crowds to theatres, Raghavender Rao proved his dominance at the box office.
