Whistle and Khaidi: An impressive Diwali box-office

Last weekend, two dubbed movies had made a lot of Hungama at the Telugu box-office. With no major Telugu releases, these two movies had raked in good collections in our states. Tamil superstar Vijay’s ‘Whistle’ was released in a huge number of screens and the hype also helped the movie in posting big numbers.

‘Whistle’ has collected approximately Rs 6.50 Cr in its first weekend in Telugu states. This is a huge collection for a Vijay starrer. Vijay didn’t have a strong market in Telugu states. This film has made it possible.

By the end of the first week, ‘Whistle’ will bring profits to its distributors. On the other hand, Karthi’s ‘Khaidi’ became a silent winner. The film didn’t create much hype before the release but strong word-of-mouth and positive reviews have helped the movie in getting good numbers on the first weekend.

The terrific thriller directed by Lokesh Kanagaraju has collected about Rs 4 Cr in the first weekend in Telugu states. The film will give better returns on investment. It is also enjoying a superb talk and has witnessed steady growth.
