Expectations were quite high on Natural Star Nani’s Jersey, though the actor’s last films were commercial flops. More importantly, Nani and team promoted the film vigorously and promotional content too was well received. Fortunately, the Gowtham Tinnanuri’s directorial got overwhelming response from critics and audience alike.
On the other hand, buzz was low on Raghava Lawrence’s horror comedy entertainer Kanchana 3 directed by the actor himself. Moreover, they didn’t promote the film majestically like they did for Tamil version. Interestingly, Kanchana 3 was slammed by critics for lack of novelty and for not having exciting elements in adequate.
Many expected Lawrence committed a blunder by releasing his film in competition with Jersey which was promoted as one of the major attractions of this summer. However, the scene is reversed after release of these two films on same day on 19th of this month.
Irrespective of negative talk from critics, Kanchana 3 has been exceptional at Telugu and Tamil box office. Nonetheless, Jersey which received extreme positive reports is not up to the mark when it comes to its box office performance. Although Jersey is doing quite well in A centers, the film is getting stiff competition from Kanchana in B and C centers.
Apparently, the title Kanchana has become a lucky charm for Lawrence in bringing audience to theaters.
