After a three-month break, Ravi Teja returned to the big screen with his new venture, ‘Eagle’.
Initially scheduled to release during the Sankranti festive season, the film faced a delay due to the busy schedule of other releases.
Unfortunately, this strategic decision did little to bolster its performance, as first-day box office earnings fell short of expectations.
Directed by Karthik Gattamneni, the Telugu action thriller hit theaters yesterday to a reception that can best be described as mixed to decent.
While critics offered varying reviews, audience feedback has also been lukewarm. This lukewarm response may have contributed to the disappointing overall box office performance as “Eagle” failed to surpass the earnings of Ravi Teja’s previous film “Tiger Nageswara Rao”.
Initial reports indicate that ‘Eagle’ managed to rake in Rs 6.15 crore at the Indian box office on its release day. Given Ravi Teja’s star power, expectations were higher, but the film’s reception did not reach the expected levels.
Despite a promising start with morning screenings, the film saw minimal growth during afternoon and evening screenings.
Comparatively, Ravi Teja’s previous film “Tiger Nageswara Rao” debuted with Rs 6.60 crore in box office collections on its opening day, even amidst competition from Nandamuri Balakrishna’s “Bhagavanth Kesari”.
