Though overall the opening of superstar Mahesh Babu’s spy thriller Spyder is superb the lukewarm response from his core fans in the Telugu speaking area is a bit of a dampener for the distributors who have paid a staggering amount for its rights. Compared with the price at which it was sold a opening figure of Rs. 15.3 Crore might be lot less than anticipated. Adding to the trouble is the mixed response from the audience and critics.
Even Jai Lava Kusa had a better opening than it, though it too has slowed down from Monday. But the Dasara holiday means that a strong second day can still make a difference. The film has fared very well in Tamil Nadu taking a very strong opening while abroad also it has opened well with the opening in USA the third best of all time.
