Krish Jagarlamudi and Balakrishna’s NTR Mahanayakudu released on February 22 and the makers hoped this film, at least, would meet audience expectations, as the first film was a complete dud. However, to the much disappointment to Nandamuri fans, the second part too disappointed and has hit too low with poor box-office collections. NTR Mahanayakudu has collected only Rs 40 lakhs on the second day. In totality, including Day one and Day two of both the Telugu states, the film aked in only Rs 1.65 crore.
The film has a huge star cast with the likes of Kalyan Ram, Vidya Balan and Rana Daggubati among others. Considering the stellar cast the film has, it failed to weave the magic. While NTR Kathanayakudu focussed on NTR’s cinematic journey, the second part focused on his political journey.
