Vijay Deverakonda’s youth-centric drama, ‘Arjun Reddy’ has created waves in box office. The flick which was made with a budget of Rs 5 crore has become a trendsetter in Tollywood. As per trade analysts, the movie is likely to fetch around Rs 25 crore in its theatrical run. In the US, the movie has already collected over 1.37 million dollars and pushed Tamil super star’s Ajith’s ‘Vivegam’ to the second position. After entering the elite 1 million club in the opening weekend itself, the film is now aiming to collect 2 million in US alone.
Directed by young director, Sandeep Vanga, ‘Arjun Reddy’ was produced by Pranay Vanga under Bhadrakali Films banner.Vijay Deverakonda portrayed a surgeon in this gripping drama. The movie narrated the ups and downs in his life after a bitter break up and his attempts to recover from addictions.
The unorthodox and hard-hitting drama of a psychotic medico has been received well by audiences as it offered something fresh to them in terms of characterisation and narrative, breaking many stereotypes along the way. Starring Vijay Devarakonda, Shalini Pandey in the lead, Arjun Reddy is directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. This is also the first instance of an A-certified film doing so well in the overseas market. Should the film end up collecting $2 million, it would be an all-time record for a small film.
