Prabhas Radhe Shyam is a pan-India film and needs to click as it has been made on a budget of 300 crores. The stakes are really high and the makers will watch the Hindi collections closely as the huge chunk of the revenue should be coming from here.
But the advance bookings for the Hindi version in the U.S. is quite dull to say the least. As per the current tracking in the US, the Hindi and Tamil versions are pulling hardly any pre-sales which is a danger sign.
Prabhas is now a Pan-India star and for him to deliver mind blowing figures compared to other heroes who are just about to try outside Telugu market and this is a must to prove that he is bigger than others.
If the trend doesn’t change by Wednesday in the U.S., only terrific word of mouth after the first premiere should excite non-Telugu fans. In Telugu too, the collections will not be great as the exam season is on.
Radhe Shyam is getting a proper solo release all over but it is not creating a solid buzz in Hindi which is a must. Looks like the audience wants to wait for the verdict and watch the film as Prabhas is not seen in an action avatar in Radhe Shyam.
