The time of 100 days films was over, the era of highest total grosses is at an end. All that the star heroes and their fans care about now is the first day openings.
The first day collections decide the fate of any star hero movie. More the gross on first day, more safe the producers of the films will be.
With lack of theater unavailability, mouth talk, anti-reviews, the flood of small scale movies and Piracy is killing the collection of the movies from the second day onwards. That is why the distributors are doing their best to maximize the sale of their product on the first day itself.
Here is list of top 5 Tollywood grosses so far:
Baahubali: 30.7 crore
Attarintiki Daredi: 10.53 crore
Aagadu: 9.7 crore
Temper: 9.6 crore
S/o Satyamurthy: 9.2 crore
