Syeraa Narasimha has been able to do good business in Nizam /Andhra though maybe not good enough to meet the expectations of the domestic market. It has done better than Saaho in the local market though was aided by holidays.
The main difference between Syeraa Narasimha Reddy and Saaho is the Hindi circuits where the former is a disaster. The release date and the clash with War probably hit the film badly and a release this week would have seen a better performance but then the local market Nizam / Andhra would have missed out on holidays.
If we look at just South then there is not much of a difference between the two with Saaho at 138 crore nett plus and Syeraa Narasimha Reddy at 134 crore nett. If we take out the Hindi version of Saaho in South which collected well then Syeraa Narasimha Reddy will actually be better in South.
The dull performance in Hindi circuits will be costly as to recover a budget of 180 crore it needed a better performance in Hindi markets unless all South markets fired which is not the case here with only Nizam / Andhra collecting well.
