Baby, the latest Telugu film featuring Anand Deverakonda, Viraj Ashwin, and Vaishnavi Chaitanya takes a solid start at the box office
Baby is a film that was promoted a lot before its release. The songs of the film were big hits and created a good buzz for the film. Baby hit the screens with solid hype on July 15, 2023, and lived up to all the expectations created. The film is a triangular love story and had Anand Deverakonda, Viraj Ashwin, and Vaishnavi Chaitanya in lead roles and was directed by Sai Rajesh of Hrudaya Kaleyam and Color Photo fame.
As word of mouth was strong and the film has close to fifty paid premieres, Baby opened to a solid collection of Rs 7.1 crores gross worldwide on day one. This is a record collection for any small-budget film. Even though the film had mostly new faces, the audience is loving the hard-hitting content and thronged the theaters in big numbers.
The youth in Telugu states have connected quite well to this hard-hitting and bold drama. Baby is about a college-going girl who dates two guys at a time. Vaishnavi Chaitanya played the main lead and her bold performance in the film is being appreciated big time.
Anand Deverakonda, the brother of superstar Vijay Deverakonda has also been struggling for a good hit under his belt, and with Baby, he has proved that he can also act and impress everyone with his acting skills. As it is the long weekend in Telangana, the occupancy for the film will surely be high in the next three days or so.
Sai Rajesh, the director is being lauded for his solid work. He has showcased the mindset of today's youth when it comes to love and partners in a very bold manner. This is also one of the reasons why the film has clicked big time with the youth.
SKN has produced the film on Mass Movie Makers and the film needs to make Rs 9 crores to be in the safe zone. By the looks of it, Baby will make double that figure as there is no other Telugu film that has come out and stood in competition with Baby.
