Talk wise, ‘Gabbar Singh’ and ‘eega’ have opened equally to a unique positive response with maximum number of screens reserved for the release. Perhaps, if Rajamouli was the crowd pulling factor for ‘eega,’ it’s again the name of Pawan Kalyan is forever reliable for gigantic openings. As the first two days of performance of ‘eega’ is slowly coming out in the form of BO progress reports, definitely the collections are mind-blowing even without any star hero attached to the project.
Analysts are congratulating the star director for establishing new benchmarks in film making and are also expecting an easy commercial success in the hands. Meanwhile, interesting subject in market is what could be the maximum share a movie like ‘eega’ would generate in its long run? Will it be anything near Rs.30 to 40 Crores or more than that? Will our audience accept a project with real technical stuff at the behest of absence of star hero? Irrespective of all the anticipations if ‘eega’ fails to cross the BO benchmark of sensational ‘Gabbar Singh,’ definitely we must agree on Telugu audience always love to give an edge only to star heroes than star directors.
