Box Office Woes for “Agent” as First Monday Proves Disappointing….!!
Surender Reddy’s latest Telugu film “Agent,” starring Akhil Akkineni and Sakshi Vaidya in lead roles, released on April 28th, has been receiving negative reviews. Despite featuring Mammootty in a key role and releasing on a large scale, the film failed to perform well over the weekend, with collections not improving on Saturday and Sunday.
In four days, the film managed to collect a share of Rs. 5.28 crores and a gross collection of Rs. 9.46 crores in the Telugu states alone. It garnered collections of Rs. 0.37 crores and Rs. 0.80 crores in Karnataka plus rest of India and overseas, respectively. The total worldwide collection in four days was Rs. 6.49 crores share and Rs. 12.20 crores gross.
However, the situation worsened on the first Monday with no collections in most areas, indicating that the film’s box office run may soon be over. The movie’s total valued business stands at Rs. 36.20 crores, but the break-even point is fixed at Rs. 37 crores, which means that the film needs another Rs. 30 crores to become a hit.
According to trade experts, due to the negative reviews, the chances of “Agent” succeeding at the box office are bleak, and it may be difficult to sustain its run in theaters. Film analysts opine that this movie has hit Akhil’s career hard yet again. Overall, the prospects for “Agent” seem grim, and it remains to be seen if it can recover its losses and become a hit.
