Right from the start, the talk about Nagarjuna’s recently released film Officer hasn’t been positive. Also, there were various reports about how much the film collected. According to reports from trade circles, Officer has ended up with a mere Rs 75 lakh in total. The film was out of the theatres within a week, which shows its dismal performance.
Directed by Ram Gopal Varma, the film has Nagarjuna playing the lead role with Myra Sareen playing the leading lady. The director and actor have a good track record, with their previous ventures – Shiva, Antham / Drohi and Govinda Govinda – doing well at the theatres. This had created huge expectations about Officer among film buffs but the flick turned out to be a box office dud.
Officer was out in theatres on June 1 amidst a lot of expectations but the film failed miserably at the box office. It was bankrolled by Ram Gopal Varma under his banner R Company Productions. Besides, directing and producing Officer, RGV was also in charge of the story and screenplay. The film also starred Anwar Khan, Sayaji Shinde, Ajay and Baby Kavya in supporting roles.
Admitting that Officer was a failure, Nag had posted on his Twitter handle, “These words by Winston Churchill come to my mind “SUCCESS IS NOT FINAL, FAILURE IS NOT FATAL: IT IS THE COURAGE TO CONTINUE THAT COUNTS.” I smile and I move on. Have a great day!!! (sic)”.
Good morning!!it is Monday again and another week is over. These words by Winston Churchill come to my mind “SUCCESS IS NOT FINAL,FAILURE IS NOT FATAL: IT IS THE COURAGE TO CONTINUE THAT COUNTS.”— Nagarjuna Akkineni (@iamnagarjuna) June 4, 2018
i smile and I move on. Have a great day!!!
One of the producers of the Nagarjuna starrer Officer, in an open letter to the media, accepted that the film failed both creatively and financially. In the letter, producer Sudheer Chandra agreed that the film was not sold in a majority of areas.
With Officer turning out to be a failure, it now needs to be seen if RGV’s project with Nag’s son Akhil Akkineni would materialise.
