Prabhas’s much-hyped ‘Radhe Shyam’ had a decent start at the USA box office. The film grossed $1.23 million on the first day (including premiere shows). For any Telugu film, this is a big number on the first day.
The premiere shows were not reported separately. It was reported along with Friday’s gross. So, the film has collected $1,231,766 ($1.23 million) from 755 locations on Friday, along with premiere shows.
Pawan Kalyan’s recent release, Bheemla Nayak, grossed $1.32 million (premiere shows+day 1).
RadheShyam: Thursday Premiere Shows +Friday (Day1): $1,231,766 ($1.23 million)
Bheemla Nayak: Premiere+Friday (Day1): $1,325,485 ($1.33 million)
‘Radhe Shyam’ saw a huge dent in collections after the negative word-of-mouth and poor ratings from critics. All leading websites and critics have panned the film with an aggregate rating of 2 to 2.5.
Bollywood critic Anupama Chopra in her review wrote that “the lazy writing undermined the grandiose visual.” Popular critic Sangeetha Devi Dundoo of ‘The Hindu’ summed the film: “A shallow story and lacklustre screenplay make Pooja Hegde and Prabhas’ ‘Radhe Shyam’ a colossal bore.”
