The village-based drama Rangasthalam starring Ram Charan and Samantha Akkineni was released on 30 March. By all reports, the collections of the film is unstoppable at the box office. Rangasthalam is already in the all time top three grossers in Tollywood, having collected over Rs 195 cr gross and Rs 115 cr share (approximately Rs 118 cr share including the overflows) worldwide in the first 30 days of its release and is still going strong at the box office.
The film seems well on its way to enter the coveted Rs 200 cr gross club. It is all set to become the highest grosser after Baahubali 2 going by the current trend, following which the makers are all set to get the film dubbed into several Indian languages. The film is being dubbed in Malayalam, Tamil, Bhojpuri and Hindi, and several other languages are under consideration.
The film is about a fictitious village struggling under the leadership of the village’s evil president (played by Jagapati Babu). Ram Charan and his brother’s fight to bring him down forms the crux of Rangasthalam.
Made on a budget of Rs 60 cr, the theatrical rights of Rangasthalam were reportedly sold for Rs 80 cr, the highest for a Ram Charan film. The rural drama is written and directed by Sukumar, who is also in charge of the story, screenplay and dialogues. The film was bankrolled by Naveen Yerneni, Y Ravi Shankar and Mohan Cherukuri under the popular banner Mythrie Movie Makers and the film was distributed by Ram Charan’s Konidela Production Company. The music for this flick is composed by Devi Sri Prasad with R Rathnavelu cranking the camera and Navin Nooli editing it.
The film is undoubtedly one of the biggest hits in Tollywood in the first quarter of 2018.
