Ram Pothineni starrer Hyper opened to an average response and failed to show growth over the weekend.
The film starred by Pothineni who is enjoying the success of his recent movie Nenu Shailaja has been directed by Santhosh Srinivas. This is the second time Ram teamed up with Director after the hit movie Kandireega.
The movie has failed to cross even the $100,000 mark at the US box office in three days.
Ram Pothineni has a decent fan following in North America and his recent releases have fared well in the country.
Hence, Cineparadiso acquired its overseas distribution rights, shelling out a hefty sum for them.
The distribution house premiered the movie in over 50 screens on Thursday night and released it in over 90 cinema halls across the country on Friday.
Hyper received average response in the premiere on Thursday night and collected approximately $16,208.
The movie garnered mixed response from the audience and the word of mouth took a toll on its business on its opening day.
The film collected $24,590 at the US box office on the first day.
The Ram Pothineni and Raashi Khanna starrer showed some amount of growth on Saturday, but it was not upto the expected mark.
Ram’s previous release Nenu Sailaja collected $328,826 (Rs 2.18 crore) at the US box office in its opening weekend and it was the highest amount for the actor’s film. After seeing its hype and promotions, trade analysts predicted Hyper would break this record, but the film has failed to cross even half the amount. – CINEWS
