Jersey mystery: Great reviews but sub-par collections
Nani’s recently released film Jersey is receiving overtly positive reviews from critics and audience. However, the film is not performing as well at the box office due to bad planning.
A Telugu film with positive responses would have crossed the $1 million mark in the opening weekend. However, Nani’s Jersey is yet to touch the mark. On Saturday, it had minted $726 in the US and is expected to cross the $1 million mark on Tuesday.
Similarly, the film’s collection took a beating as Raghava Lawrence’s Kanchana 3 is running successfully in B and C centres despite receiving mixed reviews from the critics and general public.
The film’s theatrical rights have been sold for Rs 27 crore and it should collect at least Rs 50 crore to step into the profit zone. With Avengers:Endgame all set for release, Jersey has a long road ahead.
