Hype and box office potential are two different things, and they vary from film to film. After the super success of “Arjun Reddy” which made more than 25+ crores share, there came “Geetha Govindam” that made 66+ crores share at the Telugu box office. But that didn’t help Vijay Devarkonda now!!
The likes of Mahesh, Charan and NTR also can’t post heavy numbers in case if they come up with sloppy content. In the case of Vijay Devarakonda, it happened the same now as “NOTA” gave him the first ever shock. While the film collected 7.5+ crores share on the first day, it’s Saturday and Sunday collections added only 70 lakhs to it, taking the share to 8.2 crores.
More importantly, if the Saturday collection is higher than Sunday collection, then that film will be considered as a mega flop only. This made it clear that even if Vijay Devarakonda’s antics are impressive, it’s the content that weaves a money-spinning web around itself but not just a hero alone. There will be so many things for the actor to learn from this colossal flop.
In the recent times, only a few actors scored back to back big hits and if NOTA has scored a hit then it would have completed that terrific hattrick for Vijay Devarakonda. Dot!!
