Godfather worldwide closing collections - Flop


The box office journey of the Godfather movie has ended.

Godfather is a remake of Lucifer, which was an industry hit in Malayalam with Mohanlal playing the lead role and directed by Prithviraj Sukumaran.

This movie, which came in the combination of Megastar Chiranjeevi and director Mohan Raja, got a good response from the fans right from the first show. But after the first weekend, Godfather could not maintain the momentum in the collections.

Godfather movie was released by producer NV Prasad himself. This movie was valued at 80 crores at the box office. But this movie managed to achieve only 62 crores share worldwide and ended as a flop.

Godfather's inability to reach the break-even mark even with low business has left mega fans and the trade circles in shock. In many areas, the closing figures of Godfather are not even in the range of Chiranjeevi's earlier movies' first-day numbers.

Lucifer was already released in Telugu and also was available on OTT, remaking that kind of movie didn't go well with the neutral audience. 

Well there is no doubt that the movie has been mended and blended well to be presented to the Telugu audience by adding the extra spice to elevate the neutral flavor of the Original, it's a lesson to the production houses that, No matter how good the movie might shape up it should be supported by even good promotions for the product to reach the masses and make profits.

Though Chiru and Mohan Raja managed to promote the movie post release with YT interviews and Instagram lives, that didn't meet the requirements as the damage was already done.
