Pawan Kalyan and Venkatesh's Gopala Gopala is on a ventilator for the last two days. After a good first weekend the movie struggled to keep up the pace on working days, Monday and Tuesday and reported drops every where. Immediately after the Sankranthi season began, Gopala Gopala had a tough competitor in the form of Shankar's I starring Vikram and Amy Jackson.
The movie has got unprecedented craze in both the Telugu states and there are sensational openings every where from multiplexes to C class centers. Gopala Gopala would have been finished if 'I' managed to get good talk. However the movie has got 'Below Average' to 'Flop' talk every where and is heading towards a failure. In such case, the movie's failure is definitely a life line to Gopala Gopala.
On the other side, there is a huge risk involved for the distributors of 'I' in Telugu. The movie made a prerelease business of 39 Crore and it has to collect at least 40 Crore for the distributors to be on safe side. Given the talk, the movie's run may end with this Sunday. Some thing out of box sensation will have to happen if the movie has to become profitable for all.
