The success of Mahesh Babu – Samantha starrer Dookudu at the box office is phenomenal. The trade pundits have predicted that ‘Dookudu’ will turn out to be the biggest hit in the history of Telugu films. And after seeing its mammoth opening, there is no denying that ‘Dookudu’ will break and set records.
‘Dookudu’ fetched a staggering Rs. 9.20 crore on its first day and is expected to set new BO records in the coming days. Mahesh Babu’s fans, who fondly call him Prince Mahesh, have given the movie their thumbs up, and have made him the BO king.
The film’s first week business is expected to surpass the collections of a superhit like Magadheera. ‘Magadheera’ grossed around Rs. 4.5 crore in USA and now ‘Dookudu’ can easily make Rs. 6.5 crore, believe trade analysts.
So, what makes Dookudu such a rage at BO? Obviously, the most important is the star of the film, Mahesh Babu; then the film is directed by Srinu Vytla, who has earned a name for making mass entertainers. The presence of popular comedians Brahmanandam and M.S. Narayana in the film is also an asset, and ‘Dookudu’ has a beautiful heroine Samantha Ruth Prabhu, sharing screen space with Mahesh for the first time.
Sleek action sequences and entertaining one-liners are the highlights of the film plus Mahesh Babu’s trademark style of acting and dance sequences make it a must-watch.
