A small film, Mathu Vadalara, which released for Christmas, won praise from critics, but despite the superb word-of-mouth, the movie did not succeed in posting big numbers. The film’s total share in its five days stands at Rs 1.30 crore, with 65 lakhs coming from Nizam and 25 lakhs ($65k) coming from the USA.
This can be termed as a pretty ordinary show for a movie that won such rave reviews and has the backing of big names like Rajamouli and Keeravani. However, the collections can be still termed impressive as the film is made on a shoestring budget with non-stars. The movie may rake in significant amounts from non-theatrical rights.
