Manamey box office collection day 1: Did mixed reviews for Sharwanand and Krithi Shetty's romantic comedy affect its opening?

    Here’s how much Sharwanand and Krithi Shetty’s film Manamey collected on its opening day



    Sharwanand and Krithi Shetty’s latest film, Manamey, which was released on June 7, 2024, has been running successfully in theaters. Despite receiving underwhelming reviews from critics and first-day-first-show (FDFS) attendees, the film has managed to attract family audiences. This success is partly due to its genre, as audiences have grown weary of the string of action dramas that have dominated Telugu cinema since the beginning of 2024.

    Here’s how much the Sriram Adittya-directed film collected on its opening day:

Released alongside Navdeep’s Love Mouli and Kajal Aggarwal’s Satyabhama, Manamey managed to attract more audiences thanks to its vibrant lead cast and eye-catching color grading. Despite mixed reviews, the film is expected to perform better at the box office over the weekend.
