Balakrishna’s ‘Akhanda’ completes 175-day run in AP theatre

1

Nandamuri Balakrishna and Boyapati’s hit commercial treat ‘Akhanda’ has now run for 175 days at Chilakaluripeta’s Ramakrishna theatre in Andhra Pradesh.

According to reports, the theatre owners want to celebrate the occasion privately, and Nandamuri Balakrishna is expected to attend. While most people believe that the days of films being honoured for running for 50 or 100 days are over, Balakrishna proves otherwise by achieving this rare feat.

Following the pandemic, the Telugu box office has seen a proper hit for the first time in a long while, and it all started with Balakrishna’s ‘Akhanda’. In some theatres, the film also completed a 100-day run at the box office in March.

Balakrishna is now working under Gopichand Mallineni of ‘Krack’ fame for their highly-anticipated mass entertainer.

We’re Neglecting Haindava Sanathana Dharmam: Balakrishna

1

Natasimha Nandamuri Balakrishna and Boyapati Sreenu completed hat-trick hits in their combination with Akhanda which completes 100 days run in 4 centres, out of which 3 belong to Kurnool district. The team has celebrated Akhanda Kruthagnatha Sabha in Kurnool. It was a big success with massive crowd making presence for the function.

Balakrishna expressed his happiness of celebrating 100 days function, after a long time, as it has become almost an impossible task for movies to complete 100 days run in theatres.

Balakrishna said, “Akhanda’s shoot got delayed, due to corona. We took all the precautionary measures and had good time shooting for the movie. I learnt it from my father that, our films should give message to the society. Due to our busy schedules, we are neglecting Haindava Sanathana Dharmam.

I thank God for giving me the chance to narrate these kinds of stories. Akhanda made entire country proud. We thank every Indian across the globe. I and Boyapati don’t think much about money or budget of movies, we don’t even discuss much about stories of our movies as well. I thank every one who worked for the movie.”

Bheemla Nayak takes best opening post COVID 2nd wave

1

Bheemla Nayak has taken a very good opening in the Telugu States with a distributor share of 25.80 Cr. The film has set All-Time Record in Nizam beating Pushpa but the collections in AP have been affected by the ticket cap restrictions. The film didn’t even release in some centres as the tickets were capped at 30/- which won’t even recover the theatre rents.

The film has taken the best opening post COVID 3rd wave beating Pushpa. In areas like Ceeded, Nellore, Krishna the film has collected less than Pushpa due to the ticket cap restrictions. Even special shows were now allowed to be screened.

AP/TS shares of Top 3 films Post COVID 3rd wave:

January 2022: Poor Start for Tollywood

0

2021 left the film industry in huge losses due to the coronavirus pandemic. The producers are left under huge stress because of the delays and the heaping up interests. December 2021 has been quite good after the month reported three hits in the form of Akhanda, Pushpa and Shyam Singha Roy. The crucial Sankranthi season is badly missed this year as there are no prominent releases except Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya’s Bangarraju. January started on a dull note with ten releases and nine flops.

Bangarraju reported decent footfalls during the Sankranthi season because of the stars. Before this, Aasha Encounter, Induvadhana, 1945 and Athididevobhava released during the first week of January. All these films ended up as disasters. Other Sankranthi releases Rowdy Boys and Hero ended up as flops and failed to make an impact. They failed to recover the huge budgets too. Kalyaan Dhev’s Super Machi failed to screen shows as they were no footfalls. Keerthy Suresh tested her luck with Good Luck Sakhi and the word of mouth is quite poor.

The film too will fail to recover the publicity expenses. This adds one more debacle for Keerthy Suresh. On the whole, January 2022 started on a dull note and Tollywood has high hopes on February.

Confirmation soon for Tamil release of Balakrishna-starrer ‘Akhanda’

0

A report has said that the Tamil-dubbed version of “Akhanda” is all set to hit the screens this Friday in Tamil Nadu.

Starring popular Telugu actor Balakrishna in the lead role, directed by Boyapati Srinu, “Akhanda” has been streaming in Telugu on Disney+Hotstar.

Even though “Akhanda” is available on OTT, the movie is planned to be released in theatres in order to capitalise on the existing buzz.

While there is an ambiguity about the dubbed version’s release, it is even said that the movie’s Telugu version will be released in Tamil Nadu.

The makers are yet to clarify the same.

There are no straight Tamil films coming out this week due to the pandemic, so Tamil Nadu distributors have shown interest in the movie “Akhanda”, which can be called a blockbuster hit in Telugu.

There is a possibility that the movie will be dubbed into other languages soon after the Tamil release.

Pragya Jaiswal appears as the heroine in the mass entertainer, while Srikanth and other actors are in significant roles.

Balakrishna’s dynamic role in the movie is lauded by the Telugu audience, while SS Thaman’s music still stays as one of the biggest highlights about “Akhanda”.

As a result, Pragya is about to hit her head on the windshield when Balakrishna saves her. He then urges her to wear her seat belt and says, “Life is precious.”The Hyderabad police have picked this scene and have now posted it on their Twitter handle with the message, “No Matter How Far, No Matter Whose Car, Always Buckle Up!”

Apart from tweeting this message with the hashtags #WearASeatBelt, they also thanked both the director and the hero of the film for the message.They tweeted, “Thank you Nandamuri Balakrishna garu and Boyapati Srinu garu for promoting Road Safety. #Akhanda.”

0

Akhanda has emerged as a Blockbuster as the film has collected a distributor share of 68 Cr Worldwide by the end of 34 days of its run. The business of the film is almost closing but it is sustaining collections at low levels. There is a chance for the film to add some share during Sankranthi as well as it will still run in main centers. This is the highest collected film of Balakrishna by more than 35 percent margin (the previous highest is GPSK: 49.75 Cr Share).

The film is a huge blockbuster for Nizam buyers with 60 percent profits. The collections of the film in AP were hit by the ticket cap where it lost at least 15 Cr distributor share. The film is having a very good run without weekly deficits at main centers which is excellent. Even Overseas, the film is a huge blockbuster with 100% profits for the buyers. It has collected more than 1 Million gross in the USA alone which is outstanding for a mass film.

After months of struggle due to the coronavirus pandemic, Tollywood reopened again. Several theatres are shut and for some of the days, the theatres are asked to operate with 50 percent occupancy. The AP government imposed restrictions to slash the ticket prices and some of the theatres are shut, seized due to various reasons. Nandamuri Balakrishna’s Akhnada was the first biggie that was released after the second wave of coronavirus pandemic. The film opened to packed houses and received a top-class response from A to C centres.

Then came Allu Arjun’s Pushpa and the film too opened with a bang. The film received a mixed response but the numbers are quite satisfactory. The film also made huge money in its second weekend.
