Telugu young star Junior NTR and Malayalam superstar Mohanlal's upcoming bilingual movie "Janatha Garage" is one of the highly anticipated projects of the year. The Koratala Siva directorial is likely to make a roaring business on its opening day at the worldwide box office on Thursday, Sept. 1.
Here are 5 reasons to watch Mohanlal-Junior NTR's movie
In an exclusive interview with International Business Times India, Junior NTR had stated that the story of "Janatha Garage" is the highlight of the movie. "It is a story-driven film that chose its actors. Each and every part of the film is crucial and that is what makes "Janatha Garage" so complete," the actor said. Koratala has penned the story, screenplay and dialogues of the film, which is said to be delivering a social message.
- Junior NTR
The young tiger is one of the lucky charm actors in Tollywood with almost all his movies becoming blockbusters at the worldwide box office. This is expected to be a gain for the makers of "Janatha Garage" as the actor enjoys a huge fan following throughout the country.
- Superstar Mohanlal's Telugu movie
"Janatha Garage" is the second release of Mohanlal after the multi-lingual family entertainer "Manamantha" ("Vismayam" in Malayalam and "Namadhu" in Tamil) this year. The action thriller is likely to help the superstar to make a mark in Tollywood. The combination of Junior NTR and Mohanlal in "Janatha Garage" is the USP of the movie, making it the most awaited film for Telugu and Malayalam audience.
- Ensemble cast and crew
The success of Mahesh Babu's "Srimanthudu," which earned a total gross collection of Rs. 144 crore at the worldwide box office, has already raised the expectations of the audience from Koratala as a director. Also, "Janatha Garage" boasts of an ensemble cast, including Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Nithya Menen, Rahman, Unni Mukundan, Sithara and many others in significant roles. The film also has an item song by Kajal Aggarwal.
- Music, background score, trailer
The trailer and songs of "Janatha Garage," released a few weeks ago, have already impressed the audience. They were opened to positive response from the Telugu and Malayalam audiences alike. However, the Kerala audience were disappointed as Mohanlal has not dubbed his part in the movie, even though he had done the job for his debut, full length Telugu film, "Manamantha."
Why Mohanlal-Junior NTR movie might be a box office winner?
Like any superstar movies, "Janatha Garage" has been getting immense hype due to the star cast in it. Even though the Bharat bandh on Sept. 2 and heavy rains in South India are likely to affect its collection at the box office during the first weekend, the action thriller is expected to make good business on the opening day owing to the huge fan following of the lead actors.
The movie will hit nearly 2,000 screens worldwide with 1,000 theatres in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana alone, apart from 180 screens in Karnataka, 200 screens in Kerala, 150 screens in other parts of India. The first day houseful collection of the movie itself will help the Mohanlal and Junior NTR cross the Rs. 30 crore mark from worldwide box office. Meanwhile, the Kerala theatre distribution rights of the film has been bagged by Mohanlal's production house, Aashirwad Cinemas in association with MaxLab for approximately Rs. 4.2 crore.
