|Rakta Charitra box office update. The Vivek Oberoi starrer Rakta Charitra, Ram Gopal Varma’s most violent film to date, had an excellent start in Andhra Pradesh.
The film’s Telugu version is running to house-full shows, and the reason could be that the film is based on the story of the bloody rise to power of the Andhra politico Paritala Ravi, played by Vivek Oberoi in the film.

In the north, however, Rakta Charitra (Hindi) got a below average response from cine buffs, with mere 25 to 30 percent occupancy in theatres. Rakta Charitra has got good reviews from critics and that should lead to a better response at the box office.
On the other hand, Mallika Sherawat’s Hisss, which has been unanimously panned by every critic, had a good start at single screen theatres. But the bad reviews and negative word of mouth might slow its run at box office.
In comparison, Jhootha Hi Sahi, starring John Abraham and Pakhi, had a better start with about 35 to 40 percent occupancy, but the mixed reviews it has got from critics isn’t going to help it pick up much in the days ahead.
Which of the three films will sail and which will sink at box office will be clearer by Monday.
