From past few years, the mighty stars of Telugu Cinema like Pawan Kalyan, Mahesh Babu, Ram Charan haven't been delivering on the huge promises. Their movies have become flops and disasters or at best average grossers.
After Srimanthudu, Mahesh Babu delivered two huge disasters. Pawan Kalyan after Attharintiki Daredi delivered three back to back disasters. Ram Charan reduced the number of films and did Dhruva and Rangasthalam only after Bruce Lee.
Jr. NTR and Allu Arjun were only able to give some respite to the distributors. Now, all two of the three big stars have delivered hits. Rangasthalam is still going strong without deficits and Bharat Ane Nenu is showing Mahesh Babu stamina at box office.
While this is great for all the distributors and exhibitors who lost huge amounts with big films, medium budget films that have been saying them, seem to have lost that charm in April, mainly.
Due to Rangasthalam, Nithiin's Chal Mohan Ranga and Nani's KrishnaArjuna Yuddham, did not perform as per expectations. Now, Bharat Ane Nenu hasn't given them any space to recover as well.
After these two, Allu Arjun is coming with biggest movie of career, Naa Peru Surya on 4th May and highest buzz creator, Mahanati, Savitri Biopic is releasing on 9th May. Sakshyam is coming on 11th.
These three are big budget movies and rest of them, scheduled for May release are medium budget films. On 18th, we have Taxiwala, 24th Nela Ticket, 25th Officer.
Raju gadu is still looking to fit in those dates but on 7th June, to end the Summer season on a high, Rajnikanth's Kaala is coming.
Seems like the small budget and medium budget movies will have to adjust their dates according to these biggies and wonder, if people will be interested to see those films if they have average content with such huge blockbusters still holding a decent interest in public? We have to wait and see.
