The family entertainer is the first release of the year for Arjun. The actor's last release "Iddarammayilatho" was just an average performer. It remains to be seen as to how "Race Gurram" fares at the box office. The film's opening has been good and it is likely to post a good total at the end of the first weekend. It will be interesting to see how the film fares during weekdays.
The Arjun starrer has received positive reviews from critics, as well as from the audience. Positive word of mouth is likely to help the film sustain its momentum and perform well. Since there are no big releases in the coming days, "Race Gurram" is expected to continue its good run at the box office. Summer holidays will also be an added advantage for the film.
"Race Gurram" has been doing exceptionally well in the overseas markets as well. The film took an extraordinary opening in the United States and featured at 12th position in the US boxoffice chart this weekend, according to film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
"Telugu film #RaceGurram is UNSTOPPABLE in USA. Features at No 12 position in USA Boxoffice chart this wknd, alongside Hollywood biggies," Adarsh tweeted.
The Arjun starrer took a grand opening in the US, earning more than $308K combined on Thursday and Friday. The film did fantastic business on Saturday and minted $309,731. Its three-day collections including Thursday premiere stand at 618,336 (₹3.73 crore) [Note these figures are from reported screens].
