‘Bheeshma’: A rocking Day 1 in Telugu States
Since the stupendous success of the two Sankranthi blockbusters (Sarileru Neekevvaru & Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo), there hasn’t been much to celebrate for cine folks. However, after the long lull, the ticket counters across the Telugu states have once again opened on a promising note with the arrival of Bheeshma. The comedy-actioner starring Nithiin and Rashmika Mandanna in lead roles is off to a flying start at the box-office with unanimously positive reviews from both the common folks and critics.
According to the stats on AndhraBoxOffice, Bheeshma has minted a share of Rs 6.31 crore on day one in the Telugu states alone. This is the highest opening for Nithiin in AP & TS. With strong word-of-mouth, the film is likely to make a merry in the weekend and recover its theatrical value pretty soon.
Besides packing the film with plenty of laughs, director Venky Kudumula managed to keep the proceedings relevant with its discourse on organic farming. While Vennela Kishore and Raghu Babu brought the house down with their impeccable comedy timing, popular Kannada actor Anant Nag delivered a matured performance as a kind-hearted agricultural scientist. Nithiin and Rashmika shine in their respective roles and their chemistry is palpable.
While the music of Bheeshma is composed by Sagar Mahati, the cinematography is handled by Sai Sriram and editing by Navin Nooli.
