Nannaku Prematho, which opened to mixed responses, received wide acclaim from critics. The film was the first release in this year's Pongal race and it marks NTR's 25th film. It has the highest pressure of proving NTR's box-office stamina as he is lagging behind in terms of collections, when compared to his peers. But, it looks like Nannaku Prematho is finally here to get him out of it. The film collected a share of 13.46 Cr in Telugu states alone.
