Continuing with the festival releases, Nandamuri Balakrishna's prestigious 99th film, Dictator, gave a Sankranthi treat to fans when it released on the 14th of this month. Dictator is doing an average business in all the centres in second week and has been declared a hit.
No 4th position at the box office..
Undoubtedly, Balakrishna is the heart and soul of the film. He is exceptionally good in both his characters and carries the entire film on his shoulders. The way Srivas has showcased Balayya as Dictator is pretty impressive and elevates the super star to another level. Be it his costumes, dialogue delivery and dances, Balakrishna does a superb job.
Story of the film is quite old and has nothing much new to offer. The only difference here is that the goons are white collared and the film is set in a Delhi backdrop. First half is just about ok as the proceeding showcase Balayya as a bit subdued which might not go well with the fans.
AT THE BOX OFFICE THIS WEEK :
A Centers : Average
B Centers : Average
C Centers : Average
Verdict : Hit
