Fidaa continues its dream run at box office not just because of how well audiences connected with this heart warming love story but also because of lack of worthy competition and luck factor.
Luckily for Fidaa, one week after its release, on July 28, only one notable Telugu film hit screens, Gopichand's 'Gautam Nanda'. With routine script and predictable execution, this so-called action entertainer reportedly failed to score at box office, thus giving an unopposed run to Fidaa at box office. According to trade reports, the 2nd week collection of Fidaa was well higher than 1st week share of Gautam Nanda.
This Friday, on August 4, we have two new Telugu releases, and fortunately for Fidaa and unfortunately for them, both films received underwhelming reviews. As per early trade reports, both Nakshatram and Darshakudu opened to poor numbers. With below par reviews and discouraging word of mouth, its difficult for these films to sustain at box office for long.
Shah Rukh Khan's biggie, 'Jab Harry Met Sejal', which also released this Friday in good number of screens across multiplexes in the Telugu states, met with severe critical response. This urban love drama may also have least impact on Fidaa.
So, Fidaa may take advantage of this week as well and pile up on its already hefty box office numbers. With massive collections of 35 crore share (60+ crore gross) in 2 weeks, Fidaa may comfortably cross 40 Cr share considering that new releases opened to poor reception.
