Per the distributors ad below, Parameswari Arts “Jeevana Pooratam” created an all time record in Nizam by collecting more than 15 lakhs gross within 7 days of its release. But this is one of the post truths of 80s Telugu cinema because
1. it released in only 23 theatres in the area (as against “Simhaasanam” 26 OR 27)
2. the movie did not have the kind of pre-release hype which “Simhaasanam” had
3. Simhaasanam had more no of special shows in the city &
4. there was not much of a gap between the two films.
I was also under the impression that the film fared very well in Nizam. But I was surprised to note that the film could complete its 50 days only with Morning shows even in the main theatre.
