The film faced many odds, the biggest being slashed ticket prices and various release issues in Andhra Pradesh. When the film was released, the release schedule was packed, with a new major release every week throughout January, limiting chances for the long run. The movie had a very positive word of mouth for the dubbed Hindi version, but the reception for the original version was quite mixed, which was quite evident with drop in collections in Telugu states during the weekdays. In the end, the film rise above all the odds, with the collections surging for the Telugu version during the weekends, the competition got cleared with films postponing due to CoVID. What looked like Rs. 225 crores closing at one time, now there is still another Rs. 7-9 crores left in the tank for the film, will probably close around Rs. 310 crores.
