Actor Allu Arjun’s latest Telugu release Ala Vaikuntapuramlo has set the box office on fire with Rs 85 crore gross first day opening worldwide.

The makers released a poster on the occasion to celebrate the grand opening. Apparently, this is the biggest opening in the careers of Allu Arjun and director

Trivikram Srinivas. According to trade analyst Trinath, the film surpassed Sarileru Neekevvaru at the box office in spite of releasing a day after the release of Mahesh Babu’s film.

“Ala Vaikuntapuramlo has struck gold at the box office. Even though it release a day later than Mahesh Babu’s film, it went on to perform better at the box office, thanks to brand Trivikram and his successful combination with Allu Arjun,” Trinath said.

Ala Vaikuntapuramlo, which marks the third time collaboration of Arjun and Trivikram, is the story of Bantu (played by Allu Arjun) and his efforts to please his cold-hearted father Valmiki (played by Murali Sharma).

The film opened to mostly positive word-of-mouth for its overall comical treatment and drama. The film also features Tabu in a pivotal role. This appearance marked her return to Telugu filmdom after two decades, and she plays Allu Arjun’s mother in the film. Pooja Hegde and Nivetha Pethuraj played the leading ladies. SS Thaman composed the music while PS Vinod has cranked the camera.
