Aha acquired the digital rights of Gaali Sampath which ended up as a dud at the box-office.

Tollywood following a new Trend

0

Telugu audience are the first to return back to theatres after the arrival of coronavirus pandemic. With several industries yet to reopen, Telugu film industry witnessed three blockbusters in three months: Krack, Uppena and Jathi Ratnalu. The music album is playing a crucial role in the success of the films. If the music album is a huge hit, the audience are rushing to theatres. Uppena and Jathi Ratnalu are the best examples. Next comes the trailer of the film and the openings of the films are highly dependent on the trailer.

The audience are matured enough and they are not bothered to watch a film in theatres if they aren’t impressed with the trailer of the film. The promotional content and the way a film is promoted is also playing a crucial role. The promotions of Jathi Ratnalu played a big role in the film’s success and the massive promotions are drawing the audience to theatres. The filmmakers have to focus much on the promotional strategies and music albums which turned out to be the key factors of a film’s success in Telugu cinema.

February Box-office: Big Boost for Telugu Cinema

0

February is a dull season for films generally. But with 2020 shattered due to coronavirus and summer 2021 packed with releases, several films released in February. The month started with Zombie Reddy and the film raked decent money at the box-office. Then came Uppena which is named as the biggest hit among the small movies. The film is standing close to Rs 50 crore share worldwide and had a super strong weekend. The film registered record openings all over and Uppena had a dream run at the box-office.

Allari Naresh is back on track after eight complete years. His recent offering Naandhi released along with a bunch of films and emerged as the winner. Along with critical acclaim, Naandhi also made decent money. Zombie Reddy, Uppena, Naandhi ended up as winners of the month. The rest of the films failed to make an impact. Nithiin’s new film Check is heading for a disaster. Vishal’s Chakra and Sumanth’s Kapatadhaari failed to rake decent numbers. On the whole, Tollywood had a decent February and the numbers of films like Uppena are a huge boost for Telugu cinema.

Tollywood is back on track in just 2 Months

Tollywood is the only film industry that reopened completely and announced releases till the end of this year. Even the Bollywood filmmakers and analysts are surprised to see the way Telugu releases performed at the box-office. The calculations have been different completely last year. Several experts predicted that it would take a couple of years for the market to revive completely and there would be a huge crisis for finances because of the coronavirus. Some of them even predicted that the top actors, directors and technicians will slash down their remunerations to save the film industry and producers. There were debates that the exhibition industry which was badly hit will struggle a lot as the theatres are shut for a year.

But things are extremely different in Telugu cinema. The predictions came down from two years to two months. The industry is back within a span of just two months. Films like Krack and Uppena overperformed and proved that the Tollywood audience are ready to watch films in theatres. Small films like 30 Rojullo Preminchatam Ela, Zombie Reddy and Naandhi proved that the Telugu audience will continue to support good films. The actors never slashed down their remunerations and they signed a bunch of projects in a surprise. Most of the actors are ready with a strong lineup for the next two years. The producers and distributors continued to shell out money for stars.

The theatrical rights for almost all the announced films for the year are sold out which is an example that Tollywood is back to track in just two months. Almost 20 films are set to test their luck in summer and if most of them perform well, Tollywood would have a golden era ahead.

Rock-solid Sunday for Uppena

0

Uppena had an exceptional second Sunday at the Tollywood box-office. The numbers are quite higher than the second Sunday numbers of several blockbusters. The film remained super strong from A to C centres dominating all the recent releases. Going with the numbers, the distribution sector predicts that Uppena will have a decent run for a couple of more weeks. Allari Naresh’s recent offering Naandhi gained strength every single day and had a rock-solid Sunday. The film witnessed housefull boards all over Telugu states.

Other releases Chakra, Pogaru and Kapatadhaari fell flat over the weekend due to the poor word of mouth. Uppena and Naandhi are expected to receive decent footfalls over the weekdays. Nithiin’s next offering Check is hitting the screens this Friday. Chandrasekhar Yeleti directed the movie and Check is carrying decent expectations.

Vaisshnav has volcano within: Ram Charan

3

Megapowerstar Ram Charan who graced the success celebrations of ‘Uppena’ movie, thanked the Telugu audiences first.

“2020 was a tough year for the entire film industry. While other film industries are still recovering, I can say with pride that our Tollywood industry has recovered hundred percent with the blockbuster success of ‘Uppena.’ I must also congratulate the producers of this film for waiting and daring to release the movie in testing times,” said Ram Charan.

Then the mega hero complemented the director Buchi. “I have been hearing a lot of numbers of the collections. This is not possible for a debutant but he did it. Sukumar is the best ‘Acharya’ for Buchi and Buchi is the best student from Sukumar’s school. I hope Buchi remains this grounded and makes many more blockbusters like this,” said Ram Charan.

Talking about hero Vaisshnav, Charan added, though he looks silent and innocent, there is a volcano within him, be careful with him. “When Vaisshnav decide to step into films, it’s Megastar Chiranjeevi garu and Kalyan Babai who encouraged him. It’s a blessing for him and us that they are in our lives,” added Charan.

The ‘RRR’ actor also spoke to about Krithi Shetty. “Probably no other heroine got such a huge debut in the recent times. This is just the beginning for Krithi and she has a long way to go. Perhaps Mythri producers will find it tough to get the dates of Krithi in future,” stated Charan.

The event witnessed a massive crowd and the success celebrations brought a cheer to the producers as well.

Meanwhile ‘Uppena’ is going super strong at the box office. The film might end up raking up Rs 50 crore share.
