Thank You Box Office Collection Day 1: Lacklusture start

Thank You: The Movie Collection Day 1

It has been 7 weeks since the Telugu industry has seen a hit film after Major, the industry is currently struggling to deliver a money spinner at the box office. Naga Chaitanya’s recent release film “Thank You” also opens on a slow note.

Directed and screenplay written by Vikram Kumar, it stars Naga Chaitanya (Abhiram aka Abhi) and Rashi Khanna (Priya) in the main leads, it also has Malavika Nair (Paaru), Avika Gor (Chinnu), Sai Sushanth Reddy and Prakash Raj in the pivotal roles.

Box Office Collection Day 1

The film had created hype through the trailer as it looked fresh and there were positive vibes surrounding the film throughout the promotional activities. Naga is arriving on the big screens after delivering two back-to-back hits Love Story and Bangarraju. Despite all this, it failed to attract Telugu moviegoers to the cinema halls as it opened to a slow start.

As per the Tollywood BO tracker t2B Live, it performed below par on Day 1, as the film earned only Rs 3.70 Cr gross at the box worldwide on the first day. The film was expected to open with above Rs 5 Cr, but considering the day 1 performance of the film, it seems will be very difficult for Naga starrer to hold well in the future. It is said to be one of the worst openings among his recent releases.

Pre-release Business

The pre-release business for Naga starrer is valued at Rs 24 Cr, therefore to emerge as a successful venture it needs to recover Rs 25 Cr shares worldwide, while over Rs 20 Cr in Telugu-speaking states. After day 1 figures, it now needs Rs 22.84 Cr to breakeven.

Thank You: The Movie Story

The story follows a self-seeking business man Abhiram (portrayed by Naga) who thinks what he is today is on his own, he neglects those who helped him in his journey to becoming successful. He loses the character that made him likeable in the first place. How he realizes his mistakes and the importance of expressing gratitude forms the rest of the story.

Screen Counts & Review

Critics gave the film mixed to negative reviews, they panned the predictable story and flat narrative while heaped praise on Naga’s performance and the positive message that the film delivers.
