Vinaya Vidheya Rama

Boyapati Srinu's Vinaya Vidheya Rama (VVR) has opened to an earth-shattering response at the worldwide box office on the first day. The movie has smashed the collection record of Charan's Rangasthalam.

Ram Charan's association with Boyapati Srinu and his physical transfomation featured in the promos had generated huge expectations and curiosity about Vinaya Vidheya Rama. The hype made its theatrical rights sell at fancy prices and the distributors arranged a record number of screens to cash in on the Cherry mania. The film received decent advance ticket booking for its opening day.

Its screening began as early as 3.00 am on Friday and Vinaya Vidheya Rama witnessed massive amount of footfalls in these special shows. The film resgisted 100 percent occupancy in most of the cinema halls. The movie recevied the same kind of response in both multiplexes and single screens in the later shows on its opening day.

As per early estimates, Vinaya Vidheya Rama has nearly Rs 50 crore gross at the worldwide box office on the first day. The Boyapati Srinu-directed action flick has smashed the record of Rangasthalam, which was the biggest opener for mega power star Ram Charan with its worldwide collection of Rs 44 crore gross.

Vinaya Vidheya Rama has earned Rs 25.87 crore for its distributors, who have invested Rs 72.50 crore on its theatrical rights for Andhra Pradesh and Telangana (AP/TS). Here are area-wise earnings of Rangasthalam (RS) and Vinaya Vidheya Rama (VVR). These numbers are based on various sources and they may vary from the actual figures released by the makers and distributors.

However, the stakes are really high on Vinaya Vidheya Rama, but it has failed to meet the expectations of audience and critics, who are upset with Boyapati Srinu's mindless script and direction. The negative word of mouth is likely to take a toll on its collection on the following days. If it does, the film will incur loss to its distributors.
