NTR was a bit worried when Dammu generated a so-called 'divide talk' on the first day. By the sixth day, the film collected Rs. 31 cr. (Rs. 24 cr. share in Andhra Pradesh), standing testimony to the film's 'Dammu', to quote the makers, who are in a celebratory mood now. Speaking at the success meet of the film, KS Rama Rao said that the figures speak for themselves.
If the makers are proud of their achievement, Dasari wonders why some people often seek pleasure in writing off a good film. "Hit cinemanu phat ani cheppadam ademi anandamo," the veteran lamented. He was all praise for KS, saying that it was he who made Supreme Star Chiranjeevi into a Mega Star. "He always believes in the story. The point Dammu raises is good and NTR's performance is apt. An eye for an eye is not right, is the film's message. This story was created for NTR," Dasari said
