Upcoming digital releases of Telugu cinema

0

It is the success factor and the theatrical run that is deciding the date of the digital release of Telugu films. Telugu digital platform Aha turned out a crucial player and acquired the digital rights of the recently impressive Telugu films Krack and Naandhi. They are playing it safe and are betting on interesting projects instead of shelling out huge bucks for a single film. Aha acquired the digital rights of Gaali Sampath which ended up as a dud at the box-office.

The film will start streaming from March 19th on Aha, just a week after its theatrical release. Zombie Reddy had an impressive theatrical run and the film will stream on Aha from March 26th. Tollywood sensational film Uppena is all set to complete its 50 days run at the box-office and the film streams on Netflix from March 24th. Netflix is yet to announce this officially. The digital deals of some other recent releases are closed and the dates would be announced soon.

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.

Zombie Reddy Movie Review: A Desi Zombie Experience

Telugu360 Rating 2.75/5

Awe fame Prashanth Varma tasted a debacle with Kalki and his third attempt is titled Zombie Reddy. This happens to be the first Zombie film for Tollywood audience. Prashanth Varma made sure that the Tollywood audience will have a zombie experience in desi style with Zombie Reddy. Teja Sajja, Anandhi and Daksha Nagarkar are the lead actors in this film. The trailer looked promising and Zombie Reddy opened on a strong note across the Telugu states. Raj Sekhar Varma bankrolled the film that released today. Here is the review of Zombie Reddy:

Story:

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announces an emergency and national lockdown because of the ongoing coronavirus. Mario (Teja Sajja) is a video gamer who dreams big in the field. After he receives a call from his close friend, Mario and his friends reach Kurnool for his wedding. Things change suddenly after the vaccination drive goes wrong and people turn zombies. The rest of Zombie Reddy is all about how Mario and his friends attempt to bring things back to control as the world around them turns zombies. Watch the film to know about the story of the film.

Analysis:

The genre of Zombie films is quite known for the audience in western countries. Though such films are attempted in Bollywood, they could not impress the audience. Prashanth Varma attempted this new genre exploring the space of zombies after he gave the touch of the ongoing coronavirus to the story. The basic plot looks interesting but the first half of Zombie Reddy is filled with silly and unwanted entertainment. Except for the interval episode, the first half of Zombie Reddy is disappointing and falls flat. Some of the satires on coronavirus works well.

After a disappointing first half, Zombie Reddy picks up well in the second half. The entire episodes on Zombies are well presented. Prashanth Varma took enough care as he is well aware that the episodes on zombies are quite crucial for the film. Right from their makeup to the presentation, everything looks great and reminds us about Hollywood zombie films. Things go well till the climax and the concluding episodes miss the logic and sound half baked. On the whole, the second half of Zombie Reddy sounds impressive if one ignores the minor flaws.

Performances:

Teja Sajja does his part well and his performance, dialogue delivery will impress the audience. Anandhi has a decent role and she does her part well. Daksha has a crisp role and she looks glamorous in the attempt. Getup Srinu’s comedy works out big time in the second half of the film. Most of the other actors in the film have less prominence though they did their roles well.

Technical Aspects:

Prashanth Varma should be appreciated for picking up the right technical team for the film. The entire Zombie episode looks impressive and they are presented well. The action episodes with zombies are shot really well on screen. The background score and the cinematography work are the additional assets for the film. Zombie Reddy also has a crisp runtime of 2 hours and 5 minutes and the editing work is equally good. Prashanth Varma received huge support from the producers who spent lavishly. The director should have focused more on the first half as it offers nothing. On the whole, Zombie Reddy is impressive in parts and it works because of the decent second half.

Verdict:

Zombie Reddy offers a new experience for Tollywood audience who never experienced the genre of Zombies. After a disappointing first half, the second half of Zombie Reddy sticks to the genre and offers impressive stuff. It works in parts
