Mahanati – The Biopic of Legendary Actress Savitri is having a fantastic run at the USA Box Office. The movie has collected $261,112 from 149 locations on Friday with the per-location average of $1,752 in the USA. That takes the Total gross to $930,180. Some more locations will be added and the One Million Dollars Gross mark will be breached by Saturday. It will be a big achievement for a film with no star presence. Critics are calling the film as a classic which is prompting people to flock to the theaters.
With the word of mouth and reviews being ultra-positive, the trade experts are expecting a minimum of Two Million Dollars if not more in its full run. One and a Half Million Dollars Gross is very much gettable by the end of the first weekend. If it happens, it will be a significant film since the movie has no star hero in its ranks. The absence of no biggies for the next few weeks will also help the movie to a big extent. The movie is expected to do wonders in the A centers at the domestic box office. It has to be seen how the masses receive it. On the other side, the Tamil version of Mahanati, Nadigar Thilagam which released Friday has also got good reviews.
