Despite the long delay, Sai Dharam Tej’s Jawaan has opened well. It has come as a sweet surprise to the trade who were expecting a slow pick up over the weekend in case the talk was favorable. Unfortunately, word of mouth is mixed which is why the openings help.
The openings are good universally, including the US. However, it is the Telugu states that will decide the fate as the reviews aren’t encouraging for the US audience to show up. Jawaan was the second attempt by well-known writer BVS Ravi. Dil Raju presented the movie.
Jawaan is a very critical film for Sai Dharam Tej as his last movie, Winner was a major disaster. If he can survive Jawaan, there will be a roaring VV Vinayak commercial entertainer to look forward next.
