Director Boyapati Srinu is known for his distinct style of creating films that blend mass commercial elements with emotional storytelling. His latest movie, 'Skanda,' starring Ram Pothineni, follows the Boyapati trademark formula. Despite the usual criticism associated with Boyapati's films, the film performed exceptionally well at the box office.
The criticism of Boyapati's movies for their action scenes is perceived as lacking logic. Similar comments were made about 'Skanda,' but Boyapati's films tend to transcend these criticisms and perform exceptionally well at the box office. The opening day performance is the highest for Ram Pothineni in his career.
'Skanda' initially received mixed reviews, but it enjoyed a strong opening at the box office, thanks to Ram's star power and the film's vacation-friendly elements.
The movie quickly gained momentum and surprised everyone by grossing nearly 60 crore within just two days of release. Compared to other films, it is the only film that took advantage of the holiday weekend. Skanda put in big numbers on board and has been close to the breakeven mark.
This success reaffirms the enduring appeal of mass movies, as audiences are drawn to films that offer a combination of entertainment elements. 'Skanda' is yet another example of this phenomenon.
Sreeleela played the leading lady of the film and Thaman scored the film's music.
