Trade: Just Because Of Boyapati Brand

Thanks to director Boyapati Sreenu’s brand, neatly stuffed commercial elements and par word of mouth, Jaya Janaki Nayaka has put up a decent performance at box office in the first week. This however is not enough since the investment is too huge on this film.
By the end of its first week in theatres, JJN collected a worldwide share of approx. 16 crore. As per trade experts, the film needs to recover 28-30 crore to be called a safe venture. The film is earning significant moolah but it is likely to end up as a loss venture unless a miracle happens.

Below is the break up:

Nizam – 4,44,00,000

Ceded – 2,95,00,000

Nellore – 74,00,000

Guntur – 1,34,00,000

Krishna – 86,00,000

West – 98,00,000

East – 1,14,00,000

Uttharandhra – 2,04,00,000

Total 1st week AP & TG Share – 14.49 Cr

Karnataka – 90,00,000
Remaining – 50,00,000

Total 1st week Worldwide Share – 15.89 Cr (approx 25 Cr Gross)

The performance of JJN in overseas is utterly poor. The film has already been declared an outright washout, with both distributors and exhibitors losing huge money. JJN collected a mere $100K so far.
