Idlebrain correspondent had a talk with Mr Ramesh manager of the theatre for getting more information about various movies run/collections at Sandhya 35MM A/C.

Chiranjeevi super hit movie Annaiah collected an amazing share of 46 lakhs. K Raghavendra Rao's Pelli sandadi ran for 277 days with record break collections. Balakrishna's first 100 days movie at X roads, Chikkadapalli Hyd was Rowdy Inspector that ran at Sandhya 35MM A/C.

Nagarjuna 100 days movie Santhosham collected a share of 45 lakhs. Pawan Kalyan's Badri ran for 143 days and Tammudu ran for 140 days and collected 43 lakhs and 38 lakhs of share respectively at Sandhya 35 MM A/C

As per Chandraiah of Sandhya group of theatres, prestigious movies Devi Putrudu and Mrigaraju released in Sandhya Group of theatres. These two movies were the much hyped movies during sankranthi season in 2001 and touted to be sold for an astronomical amount of 5 crores each. Surprisingly Balakrishna's sankranthi movie Narasimha Naidu, which was sold for one crore at Nizam area raked 5 crore business, but the much hyped movies Mrigaraju and Deviputrudu incurred a loss of 3 crores each. This incident was an eye opener for the exhibitors and distributors in nizam area as the movie with good story line is always having a better edge over the hyped movies.
