Three anticipated films released on Friday. Makers want to cash in on long weekend on the occasion of Independence Day. It’s like another Sankranthi for Tollywood. Jaya Janaki Nayaka, the mass entertainer from Boyapati Sreenu received positive response from audience and critics. The film is high on action and emotions. Rakul Preet Singh is getting appreciation for her performance in sympathetic role. Jaya Janaki Nayaka has been released in over 550 screens worldwide.
Though the film has been received well in B & C centers, JJN had a disappointing opening in the US, the commercial entertainer collected only $ 6k having released in less screens. Contrast to this, Nene Raju Nene Manthri is getting thumping response in the US. The Rana – Kajal starrer released in 129 locations. Teja is back with this hard-hitting political drama. The film has collected 120,000 USD in the US including Thursday premieres. Nithiin’s LIE is also doing decent business with $40k. With intelligent script and stylish making of Hanu Raghavapudi, the film is likely to impress multiplex and US audience.
