Dookudu collections are super strong on Monday too. It has already set a new record in the first weekend and is poised to break Magadheera first week record. As per the trends it is all set to break Pokiri and Robo records for sure. That means Dookudu will reach top 2 position in all time grosser list.
Telugu film Dookudu has been getting rave reviews ever since it hit the theatres last Friday. Mahesh Babu's film garnered stupendous commercial success with about Rs 12.58 crore on its first day itself. The action-comedy film had been touted as the biggest hit in the history of Telugu cinema. The results of the first week sales has even surpassed the success of the hit film, Ram Charan Teja's Magadheera. Dookudu released on September 23, apparently had fetched the producers Rs 23 crore even prior to its release. Mahesh Babu's popularity and the perfect timing worked in the favour of the film.
Mahesh Babu's Dookudu is shaking the box-office in Chennai. The film had released in about 17 screens in Chennai and the film reportedly collected close to Rs 15.5 lakhs on first day alone. The response has been terrific over the last three days and by the end of opening weekend, the film collected a nett of Rs 51 lakhs in Chennai alone. Even more interesting fact is that Dookudu is the highest grosser for the September 23-25 weekend in Chennai. The film collected more than a direct Tamil film, Engeyum Eppodhum which had Jai, Sharwanand, Anjali and Ananya in lead roles. Despite being an A R Murgadoss-Fox Star Studios production and garnering critical acclaim, Engeyum Eppodhum managed to rake in Rs 45 lakhs at Chennai box-office in its opening weekend. This is a rarity and certainly a first time in recent years where a direct Telugu film has collected more than Tamil films in Chennai.http://www.123telugu.com/mnews/dookudu-shakes-chennai-box-office-hm.html
We have been receiving independent Box Office figures so far for Prince Mahesh Babu's Dookudu and while all of them pointed out the massive blockbuster status the movie is fast turning into, we have received the official figures directly from the producers now. Dookudu has stormed the Box Office to rake in a cool Rs21.22 crores in three days. That is massive by any means of comparison.
Sreenu Vaitla, Anil Sunkara, Gopi Achanta, Ram Achanta and writer Gopi Mohan all expressed their happiness at the superb outcome of the movie. Sreenu Vytla's birthday happened to be on 24th September and by then it was obvious that Dookudu was a massive hit.
As reported earlier, the movie is doing phenomenally well in the US also and the magical US$ 1 Million mark was reached within three days itself. Prince Mahesh Babu has re-established his claim as the Box Office Badshah with this film.
Prince Mahesh Babu's high voltage action and comedy entertainer Dookudu is taking the box office by storm. Collections are terrific and all earlier records are falling by the wayside. Dookudu collected around Rs 2 Crores on the opening day in Nizam areas and that is a new record for the Telugu Film Industry.
These figures come as a much needed boost for the industry at a time when morale is rather low. Dookudu has received a very positive feedback from all corners and the movie looks set to become one of the highest grossers in Prince Mahesh Babu's career.
Brahmanandam's scenes with Mahesh Babu have become the talk of the town and Sreenu Vytla has excelled at producing some truly fantastic comedy in the film. More collection records will be updated soon,so watch this space.http://www.123telugu.com/mnews/dookudu-shatters-nizam-1st-day-record.html
Prince Mahesh Babu's Dookudu has shattered the Guntur district record for highest openings by a big margin. Dookudu collected about Rs 81 lakhs for the first day in Guntur district. The earlier record was held by Magadheera for 60 lakhs.
A strong pre release buzz for the movie coupled with Prince Mahesh Babu's charming looks & Sreenu Vytla's comedy have generated bumper openings for the movie. Dookudu is the most expensive film in Prince Mahesh Babu's career and the movie is turning into a bumper bonanza for its producers and distributors.
Family crowds and youth are thronging the theaters in a big way. Dussehra holiday season has begun and it looks like Dookudu will do phenomenally well during this time. Brahmanandam and M.S.Narayana have turned in a stupendous performance for the movie.
Prince Mahesh Babu's high voltage action and comedy entertainer Dookudu has redefined the opening collections for a Telugu Cinema and this stupendous performance is not limited to Andhra Pradesh alone. Mahesh Babu has a terrific pull in overseas markets and Dookudu has been raking in phenomenal opening collections all over the world.
The collections in USA alone crossed the US$ 1 million mark over the opening weekend. UK, Australia, Dubai, Canada, Kuwait and other areas are reporting storming collections as well. Singapore, where the movie will release on September 30th due to local re-censor, is reporting terrific advance bookings.
Such stupendous all round performace was missing from our top Telugu Heroes for a while now. A few more blockbusters like this and Telugu Cinema will take its rightful place in the Southern Film Industry.http://www.123telugu.com/mnews/dookudus-storming-overseas-box-office-performance.html
