All those who had few specs of doubt as to whether the latest release Srimanthudu will withstand the onslaught of the magnum opus Baahubali, they got their answer. The film has opened to a thumping response and reports are flowing in from different centers that there is a mania for the tickets.
The trade pundits have listed out few reasons for that. For starters, Baahubali has still captured many theaters and though Srimanthudu also has got good number of theatres the wave it has created is causing scarcity of tickets. The mania for Mahesh and the determination of his fans to give a hit is also another point.
Sources reveal few stand alone theatres charging are charging Rs 300 for Rs 70 ticket for the front rows towards the screen and Rs 500 for top rows. The other reason being, the positive momentum that Baahubali created has also worked for Srimanthudu. Last but not the least, the reviews also are very positive everywhere.
