Decent Opening Weekend For Sharwanand's Ranarangam - Needs More Push

Young hero Sharwanand's latest offering Ranarangam completed its opening weekend (extended) with a decent performance at the box office despite mixed reviews. The Sudheer Varma directed gangster drama has grossed Rs. 17.01 Cr. in the 4 day weekend. Also starring Kalyani Priyadarshan and Kajal Aggarwal, Ranarangam surprisingly failed to gain traction outside of the domestic market. Still, it did well enough to collect a worldwide share of Rs. 9.61 Cr. (a bit more than halfway to breakeven). In Teluguland, the film collected a share of 8.89 Cr. Though the weekend numbers are good, the success of the film now depends on how it will perform on the weekdays. As there are no big films till 30 Aug, it may fare well.
