Young Tiger NTR's Rabhasa made it to theaters today on the eve of Vinayaka Chaviti battling against all the odds. The last minute financial problems threatened to stall the movie release but NTR intervened and managed the release on time. However the Premiere shows planned in Overseas did not go as plan partly due to the late finance clearances and partly due to bad distribution.
However back in the Telugu States, the benefit shows went on well may be with slight delay at some places. The film`s Shows started as early as from 4 AM in Several Places all over AP, Karnataka & Tamil Nadu despite having no Hype at all and the revenues are good. However the morning shows of the film got affected due to Vinayaka Chaviti pooja. And in some places heavy down pour damaged the morning shows revenue to some extent.
However our sources tell us that the movie have picked up very well from the Matinees and is expected to do extremely well in the Night shows. With limited release and initial hiccups the movie may not see the first day record but certainly the revenues will be remarkable. There is a mixed talk in the audience and divided reviews from the critics, we will have to wait till Monday to decide the exact range of the film. The success of Rabhasa is very crucial for NTR.
The actor's last film Ramayya Vasthavayya is a big flop and the actor had pinned high hopes on this movie to stage a comeback.
