I can’t think of another Superstar Krishna movie which was released with such a bad strategy. “Manushulu Cheesina Dongalu “had the potential to create new openings record because

1.craze for Krishna scaled to new heights after “Dongalaku Donga“and this was his follow-up film

2. it also featured Rebel Star Krishnam Raju, who was fresh from the successes of “Amara Deepam” and “Bhalee Alludu”.

But Padmavathi Pictures’ U. Suryanarayana Babu failed to capitalise on the Dusshera season and released the film in limited number of centres in Costal Andhra Pradesh–the film opened two days after its initial release in Vijayawada as it was the first film in that theatre (Kalyana Chakravarthy). Worse, it was released after 10 days in Nizam. It still managed to get very good openings in all centres where it was released first.
