Three films Ashoka Vanamlo Arjuna Kalyanam, Bhala Thandhanana, and Jayamma Panchayathi released on Friday and the box-office numbers are not encouraging. Ashoka Vanamlo Arjuna Kalyanam received a decent response and the film picked up by evening shows. The other releases Bhala Thandhanana, and Jayamma Panchayathi failed to report decent openings on Friday across the Telugu states. All the three films had a small release in USA because of the English film Doctor Strange. The Hollywood film even opened to packed houses in Telugu states.
Ashoka Vanamlo Arjuna Kalyanam had a decent first half and a mixed second half. But the film ended up on a decent note and the mouth of talk too is decent. Vidya Sagar Chinta is the director and the film has two leading ladies: Rukshar Dhillon and Ritika Nayak. Vishwak Sen's performance is the saviour of the film and he has been subtle throughout the film. Ashoka Vanamlo Arjuna Kalyanam will have a decent weekend all over. On the other side, KGF: Chapter 2 had a strong Friday and the film is expected to have a super strong weekend all over. RRR too remained decent in some of the regions of the Telugu states.
