Soggade Chinni Nayana (SCN) First Day Collection
Director Kalyan Krishna’s Telugu movie “Soggade Chinni Nayana” (SCN) starring Akkineni Nagarjuna, Ramya Krishna and Lavanya Tripathi, has received positive reviews from the audiences. “Soggade Chinni Nayana” is a romantic action movie with all the elements to woo the family audience. P Ram Mohan has penned the story for the film that is about a father, who returns as a soul to help his son. The movie has a ghost angle, but it does not have scary or horror elements. The title of the movie is inspired by KV Mahadevan-composed song from ANR’s 1966 movie.
The audiences say “Soggade Chinni Nayana” is socio fantasy film, which features Akkineni Nagarjuna in dual roles such as grandfather and grandson. The first half of the film is entertaining and the humour created by Nagarjuna’s dual role is good. But the second half is routine, predictable and dragging. The climx of the movie is average.
The viewers add Nagarjuna has done brilliant acting for both the roles and his performance is the main highlight of the movie. His chemistry with Ramya Krishna and Lavanya is a treat to watch on screen. Anup Rubens’ music and PS Vinod’s beautiful picturisation of rural backdrop are other big attraction of the film. The predictable plot and slow narration in the second half are the big drawbacks of the movie.
On Wednesday, film has started on an excellent note in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. It has recorded the overall occupancy of more than 65% in the states and raked the business of 7.50 crores*. From rest of the India, it has added approximately 5 crores more to its account. That means Soggade Chinni Nayana has done the total business of 18+ crores at Indian box office.
