Singam 3 ends up as a colossal flop in Telugu box office
Suriya’s latest release Singam 3 aka Si3 was released on February 9 after a lot of opening. The movie was opened to largely mediocre reviews from the critics. Si3, directed by Hari is the the third installment in the Singam franchise. Suriya has once again played the cop character Durai Singam.
Though the movie is doing good business at the B,C centres in Tamil Nadu, it has failed miserably in Kerala and the Telugu speaking states of Andhra Pradesh and Telengana. The tried and tested commercial formula and the lack of novelty in the script has backfired for the movie.
Telugu trade analytics ABO or Andhra box office, has tweeted
#Si3 #S3 Failed to do justice to its Top Distribution Rates Overall and has turned out to be a 4th Consecutive Flop for Suriya.
Suriya enjoys a wide fan following in Andhra Pradesh and Telengana. Si3 had high expectations and the movie was sold to record prices in many areas. But, the movie could not live upto the anticipation levels of the audience and has caused huge losses to the distributors and theatre owners. Similarly in Kerala, the movie failed to create any impact disappointing the scores of Suriya fans.
Despite the movie getting underwhelming response in all major release centres, the producers, Studio Green Productions have claimed that Si3 has collected 100 crores in 6 days. It is still not clear whether this report is true or not. The previous two parts in the series were huge commercial successes and that inspired the makers to plan a third part.
Si3 features two female leads in Singam regular Anushka Shetty and Shruthi Haasan. North Indian actor Anoop Thakur Singh has played the antagonist in the movie. Radhika Sarathkumar, Vijayakumar, Radha Ravi, Soori, Krish, Nithin Sathya, Robo Shankar and Chaams are also part of the cast. Music for the movie is composed by Harris Jayaraj.
