Geethanjali and Siva, in hindsight, did more harm than good to Nagarjuna in the long run. The super fame he achieved due to these films convinced him to change track and work with directors like Priyadarshan, Prathap Pothan and others who were not familiar with our market. Nagarjuna thus ceded ground to other stars like Venky due to the string of failures till “Presidentu Gaari Pellam“and never really recovered much after that. But here is one record to show how well he was penetrating in mass areas till he embarked on a new trajectory. 63 Housefull shows in first week for Murali Krishnudu! Need to check whether it ran for 50 days directly at Ganga A/C, its main theatre.
Songs increased the range of this movie.
