'Bimbisara' made Rs 6.30 Cr (in Share terms) in the Telugu States on Friday, which was its Day 1 at the box office. It needs to make another Rs 6.70 Cr for the distributors to breach the break-even point. Given the momentum and buzz, the time-travel socio-fantasy film is expected to do that by the end of Sunday.

Director Vassishta is grabbing the industry's attention by scoring a sensational outing with his very first film. Nandamuri Kalyan Ram is set to log his career's best film in terms of collections. The 'Pataas' and '118' actor is on cloud nine.

What is 'Bimbisara' about?

The story takes place in two timelines. In the first story, a fictional king named Bimbisara becomes insanely obsessed with his avarice. He wants to expand the realm of the Trigartala Empire far and wide. His arrogance and cruelty make him punish a virtuous community of healers. His sinful act pits him against a righteous man named Devadutta, who puts him on a path of redemption. Bimbisara is now transported to the 2022 Hyderabad, where he has to confront a greedy doctor Subrahmanya Shastry (Vivan Bhatena). The rest of the film is about how Bimbisara salvages himself and prevents Shastry from committing a major sin.
