It has become a custom for Ram Charan's films to get bad reviews on the first day and do tremendously well at the Box Office. Charan's latest film Govindudu Andarivadele is not an exception. This film got mixed reviews on its first day and few sections of media tried very hard to kill the movie in many ways. However, GAV gave a strong reply to all the critics and shut all the wagging tongues with a wonderful show at the box office.
Govindudu Andarivadele collected over 35 crore rupees share (global) in its first week. It has surpassed Race Gurram's first week's tally to reach the top three list of all time best opening week collections. Attarintiki Daredi is still sitting on top of this list and Charan's Yevadu holds second place. Govindudu Andarivadele is a very slow paced family film without much comedy and mass friendly elements. A film of this genre to get such big numbers is not a joke.
Although GAV got benefitted by the Holiday period, it has done exceptionally well for its genre. It is still doing steady business at the box office and is sure to make it to the forty crore club by the end of this week. GAV's numbers could have been better had the reviews been in favor of the movie. Bad reviews have affected its prospects especially in US. That said, GAV has done well in US despite bad reviews. It has collected better than previous hits of Ram Charan in this region.
