Telugu Film Express Raja 1st & 2nd Day Collection Box Office Kamai :- Sharwanand and Surabhi starrer Tollywood romantic comedy film Express Raja which went on about 500 screens yesterday in theatres all across India is getting pretty decent response right now from domestic markets of the country as a result of which this venture has managed to gross a satisfactory amount of income on the opening day of its release. Despite of getting some seriously tough competition from other Telugu ventures which are at the moment running in theatres including Nannaku Prematho and Dictator this Merlapaka Gandhi directorial has overcome all the hurdles and emerged as a winner at box office India.
Express Raja is the second film from the director Merpalaka Gandhi who had a runway hit with Venkatadri Express. The first film was witty and light-hearted throughout. It was fresh in way as it was different from the standard Kona Venkat – Gopi Mohan template comedies. This time the cast has Sharwanand playing the protagonist. Coincidentally, the first one starred the Prasthanam’s younger son and now has the elder one. The trailers of Express Raja promise an entertainer like Venkatadri Express. Let’s see how the ‘express’ saga this time turns out to be.
The story of Express Raja is a very unique one plot where the search is for a diamond that has been tied to a dog. Raja (Sharwanand) moves from Vishakapatnam to Hyderabad in search of a job. Raja is a dog hater and to such an extent that he gets rid of all the dogs in his colony by giving them to the municipality. In this process, he ends up giving the dog of his new found love Amulya (Surabhi) also. The troubles begin there and what situations it leads to is the rest of the movie about.
Sharwanand was good as usual. He appeared a bit uncomfortable in the fight sequences as we haven’t seen him in much of heroic films. But, his varied expressions made some funny moments work. Surabhi was ok in the female lead role but nothing extra ordinary too. Their scenes were fine. The best part of the film no doubt is Saptagiri. He gets a full length role and did not leave any stone unturned with his impeccable comic timing when given the right lines.
Speaking about Express Raja 1st day business well on Friday on prosperous occasion of Makar Sankranti this movie has grossed around Rs 5 crore which is more than enough as we have already stated that the competition that this film is facing at South Indian box office is too hard for a movie which is not being made under any big banner also doesn’t comprises of any big face of the industry.
Express Raja First Day Collection – Rs 5 crore
Express Raja Second Day Collection – Rs 6.5 crore (approx)
