'Jailer' has demonstrated its mettle by maintaining formidable performance even in the face of stiff competition from other releases across India. Titles like 'Gadar 2' and 'OMG 2' may have vied for attention, but 'Jailer' has convincingly emerged as the undisputed champion. Notably, Chiranjeevi's Telugu film 'Bhola Shankar,' which debuted just a day after 'Jailer,' failed to eclipse the latter's resplendent shine.
