As the title goes Naandhi (Beginning), the film marks the beginning of Comedy King Allari Naresh's new avatar. Directed by Vijay Kanakamedala, Allari Naresh ditched his comfort zone to play a serious and more intense role as an under trail prison, who suffers the tyranny of cops for a crime that he has not committed. With a super positive word of mouth and reviews, Naandhi despite a dull beginning got hold of the box-office in no time. After 10 days of run, it collected a worldwide gross of Rs. 8.23 Cr and a worldwide share of Rs. 4.44 Cr, and registered itself as a SUPER HIT. The Teluguland share of the film is Rs. 4.18 Cr.
