42 Straight films and 14 Dub films have released post Diwali in Telugu States. Out of the 42 straight releases there is not even an single film that ended up with an Above Average verdict while there are 3 Dub films ( Adirindhi, Khakee & Gruham) which have ended up as successful films. Out of the straight release, Vunnadi Okate Zindagi and PSV Garuda Vega have ended up as Below Average films while Oxygen, Jawaan & Saptagiri LLB have ended up as disasters. Critically acclaimed films Mental Madhilo & Malli Rava flopped not only in Telugu States but also in USA where these kind of films generally to do well. There are 3 more major straight films in the form of MCA, Hello and Okka Kshanam are slated for release before the end of this year and hopefully these will put an end to this drought.
