Akkineni Naga Chaitanya and Lavanya Tripathi’s latest outing Yuddham Sharanam, has been released on 8th September all the world and received mixed responses from everywhere. This movie revolves around Chaitu, who is living a very happy life with his family and friends. But his happiness doesn’t last long, some cut throat criminal enters into his life and turns their lives upside down. The film takes a poor opening at USA Box Office and the action thriller drama, has collected $33,435 through premieres in USA on Thursday. Yuddham Sharanam is directed by debutant Krishna Marimuth and produced by Sai Korrapati on Varahi Chalana Chitram banner. The film competed with comedy king Allari Naresh’s comedy drama Meda Meedha Abbayi, the remake of 'Oru Vadakkan Selfie' in which Nikhila Vimal played the female lead.
Allari Naresh scored a big hit with "Sudigadu" in 2012. Post this film, the actor had eleven movie releases in the next five years, but all of them bombed at the box office. The promos of his latest film " Meda Meeda Abbayi," which impressed the audience, generated a hope that the film might beat the records of "Sudigadu” but unfortunately Meda Meeda Abbayi took a disastrous start as it collected only $735. The film is likely to end up as a huge loss venture for the distributors and exhibitors.
G Prajith- directed romantic comedy film received mixed talks from both the audience and critics. Trade pandits predicted that the negative word of mouth would take a toll on Saturday and Sunday.
Yuddham Sharanam has collected half the revenues compared to Naga Chaitanya’s previous offering Ra Randoi Veduka Choodam which collected $ 67K from its Thursday premiers.
