In its first week, "Guntur Karam" emerged triumphant, accumulating a staggering 107.9 crores. However, the emergence of "Hanu Man" altered the dynamics at the box office, leading to a perceptible decline in the earnings of "Guntur Karam." The second week witnessed a formidable fight for supremacy, with "Hanu Man" gradually gaining ground. Notably, the rival film accumulated 3.15 crores on the second Friday, 3.25 crores on the second Saturday, 3.55 crores on the second Sunday, and 85 lakhs on the second Monday, further intensifying the box office competition.

The Struggle for Sustained Momentum:

On its 12th day since release, "Guntur Karam" reported a modest collection of 75 lakhs, signaling a challenging phase in sustaining its momentum at the box office. Despite an impressive budget of 200 crores, the film has struggled to recover only half of its investment, grappling with the task of covering its entire production cost. The looming release of "Fighter," featuring Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone on January 25, is poised to compound the difficulties for "Guntur Karam."
