Tollywood's chocolate boy aka Nani has recently come up with "Majnu", a lovable comedy entertainer. The movie has been rated positively by many of the industry critics as it promises a two and half hour storyline comprised of some impressively splendid performances. "Majnu" was released in the past week and since then it has raked in $54,000 (approx.), which is a whopping amount for a Nani starrer in the recent times. This was the amount that "Gentleman" (Nani's previous Film) has grossed in 1 week.

Majnu collections

When other movies like JyoAchyuthananda and Jr.NTR's Janatha Garage were doing well at the U.S box-office, Nani's 'Majnu' forced them out of many theaters in the past week. However, the Naga Shourya and Nara Rohith starrerhas earned a decent amount of $543,000 in its 4-week run and Janatha Garage grossed over $1,243,000. Trade expert Tarun Adarsh tweeted that "Majnu" would surpass Jyo Achyuthanada in the coming weeks and would become a highest grosser in Nani's career.

The film collected Rs 1.04 crore in Nizam, 15.27 lakhs in Krishna, 20.37 lakhs in West Godavari, 18.28lakhs in East Godavari, 11.22 Lakhs in Nellore, 23.5 lakhs in Uttarandhra, 24.5 lakhs in Guntur and around 27 lakhs in Ceded.

In the USA, Majnu minted $74K as of Friday 11:30PM CST. The film is set for a $100k mark on its first day in overseas.

Lack of publicity seems to be a prime reason for "Majnu" to rake in decent figures in the USA. If grand promotions were done prior to release like Nani’s last movie "Gentleman," "Majnu" would have performed far better. The premiere shows gross would obviously be career best for Nani.

Mixed critic response

"Majnu" has garnered a mixed response from critics as well as the audience. Though there was humor in the presence of Nani,a boring second half and dragged climax played spoilsport. Heroines Anu Emmanuel and Priya Shri were another negatives of the film. As per trade sources, "Majnu" openings are good in Telugu states, though there is a negative effect from rain in several areas.

'Majnu' Total Collections are $350,000 (approximate) in the USA.
