Dhruva - Box Office Collection

After a decent opening, Dhruva continued to get satisfactory reports from audiences. Despite the good word of mouth, Dhruva’s numbers were not enough for it to break-even. B and C centers were reported to be a bit poor compared to the performance in A centers. The opening itself affected the film’s overall outcome as well.

Other territories like Karnataka, rest of India, and overseas terrotiries were all profitable. Karnataka had a huge response becomming the 5th highest grossing Telugu film in the state. Andhra/TG suffered minor losses while Tamil Nadu faced losses due to the fact it was a remake of a Tamil film.

In the end it did become Ram Charan’s highest grosser worldwide grossing near 95 crores. Without Demonestication affecting it though it could have been Ram Charan’s second 100 crore movie after Magadheera. Dhruva became the 9th highest grossing Telugu film worldwide and the 10th highest in the two Telugu states. It was the third highest grossing Telugu film of 2016 only behind Janatha Garage and Sarrainodu. A great comeback for Ram Charan.

Dhruva grossed approximatley USD$2.15M abroad. It did about USD$1.5M in the USA itself. It grossed USD$180K in the UAE, A$150K in Australia, USD$65K in the UK, and SGD$57.5K in Singapore.

The following shows what distribution method each territory is distributed through. The Profit/Loss column in the distributor analysis table is calculated based off of which distribution method a territory is distributed through. This makes it so that a distributor's profit is not always calculated by subtracting "Rights" from "Share". Indian Movie Stats focuses on four different distribution methods: Non Refundable Advance, Minimum Guarantee, Advance Basis, and Own Release.

Dhruva - First Weekend Collection

Dhruva, as expected, picked up over the weekend putting up record numbers for a Ram Charan film to collect on its second or third day at the box office. Despite the first day being a bit below par and not upto the standards, the weekend numbers were very strong even with demonetisation affecting it. With positive responses from critics and audiences alike, Dhruva is looking to become Ram Charan’s comeback in terms of audience satisfaction and box office success. The film grossed a total of about 47 crores worldwide already becoming Ram Charan’s highest grosser in the overseas market. It is expected to break many more records for the actor later on as well.

Dhruva - First Day Collection

Dhruva opened to a very positive response from critics with most stating it Ram Charan’s best film after Magadheera. Word of mouth from audiences seem to be decent as well. But to the demonetisation factor and poor publicity, the film didn’t open as expected at the box office. Still the movie managed to put up 20 crores on its first day despite all the issues.
