In a remarkable feat, the superhero film “HanuMan,” featuring Teja Sajja in the lead role and directed by Prasanth Varma, experienced a substantial surge in collections on Republic Day. With Amritha Aiyer as the female lead, the movie has not only garnered praise for its captivating storyline but has also achieved a noteworthy milestone by amassing over 225 crores gross at the global box office.
This Prasanth Varma directorial has not only captured the attention of the Telugu audience but has also found success in the Hindi market. The Hindi version alone has garnered an impressive 40 crores nett, with predictions indicating that “HanuMan” is poised to add another 10 crores nett to its collection in the foreseeable future.
Despite its success, the Hindi collections of “HanuMan” faced competition from Hrithik Roshan’s “Fighter,” which received a positive response from the audience. The impact of “Fighter” on the Hindi belt collections of “HanuMan” was evident, yet the film’s ability to amass nearly 50 crores in the face of such competition is truly a commendable achievement.
What sets “HanuMan” apart is its success in Hindi territories despite not featuring any familiar faces for the Hindi audience. Produced by Niranjan Reddy under the banner of Prime Show Entertainment, the film boasts a stellar cast, including Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Getup Sreenu, and Satya in pivotal roles. The background score, composed by Gowra Hari, has also contributed to the movie’s overall impact.
As “HanuMan” continues to captivate audiences across languages, its box office journey stands out as a testament to the film’s universal appeal and the prowess of the team behind its creation. The film’s remarkable success is not only a testament to the popularity of the superhero genre but also a promising sign for regional films making waves in the broader Indian cinema landscape.
