Mega family hero Sai Dharam Tej has been going through a rough phase for some period. Though he pinned all his hopes on his latest release 'Tej I Love You', the movie is turning out to be another embarrassment for Teju. The movie received a mixed response right from the first show and mouth talk is also not encouraging.
The situation of 'Tej I Love You' is even more disappointing. Teju doesn't have a market in US and none of his films impressed overseas audience. As 'Tej I Love You' is a love story, hero Teju and director Karunakaran pinned hopes that it will impress overseas audience. But the first weekend collections are showing a very disappointing picture. The movie is unable to touch even $ 70,000 collections figure in the first weekend. As the collections further drop on weekdays from Monday, the movie may not see the recovery path.
When it comes to overall business, the theatrical rights have been sold for Rs.16 crores but the movie failed to recover even Rs.5 crores share till now. As the movie didn't receive hit talk, it is tough to recover the investment. Trade analysts are estimating nearly 60% losses for the movie by the end of the full run. Along with the movie failure, Teju completed a forgettable double hattrick.
