Director Anil Ravipudi has delivered F3, the sequel to his blockbuster F2, as promised. Despite failing to garner critical acclaim, the film appears to be doing well with family audiences. F3 earned Rs 4.06 crore in Nizam, Rs 5.05 crore in Andhra Pradesh, and Rs 1.26 crore in Ceded, bringing the first-day total to Rs 10.37 crore, according to the film's unit.

Surprisingly, the film's last two shows grossed significantly more than its first two shows in Telugu states. This is a good sign for the film, which received mediocre reviews from the audience.
