Venkatesh's image and Chaitu's mature acting were the biggest assets of this movie. The film was sold for 36 crores and by Christmas Day, the film collected 37.40 crores at the box-office. It crossed the breakeven mark in just two weeks and has entered the profit zone with ease. The movie is collecting decently in every area even now.
None of the films released after 'Venky Mama' were successful at the box-office barring 'Prathi Roju Pandage'. The Christmas holidays working in favor of 'Venky Mama' and with no big releases till Sankranti, this multi-starrer is sure to have a smooth run for another week or two.
