March month ended with blockbuster entertainer Rangasthalam. The movie is going great at the box office at a full throttle.
Now, to continue such momentum in Summer, most important April is here for Telugu Box Office.
Last year, Summer season saw Baahubali storm and in May had decent hits to keep the trade happy. Now, as there is no such huge event film, we have one film a week this April.
Each film has careers and reputations on the line. For Nithiin, after LIE, he needs a good hit that will keep his career going in a forward direction.
His Chal Mohan Ranga, has a good buzz due to Pawan Kalyan and Trivikram Srinivas. Both lost their name, more Trivikram Srinivas, due to Agnyathavasi. If this film clicks, it will help Nithiin in his career and saves reputation of Pawan and Trivikram, for them to go ahead with their other projects. It is also first joint production of the two, so a hit will kick-start positive momentum.
Natural Star Nani is coming with KrishnaArjuna Yuddham in the second week. The movie has him playing dual role.
For the young director, Merlapaka Gandhi, this movie is his opportunity to enter the big club. If he scores a big hit with Nani and manages to make a name, he can surely approach another big hero with more confidence.
As far as Nani is concerned he gave enough hits to not worry about one film, but if this movie too clicks, he will be the star hero, he is hoping to be and may get to try some more stories that otherwise he might fear.
Mahesh Babu's most ambitious and potentially controversial movie, Bharat Ane Nenu, in the direction of Koratala Siva is coming out in the third week.
This movie is important for Trade as the actor scored two back to back record breaking disasters and that marked for huge losses. The actor needs to give a blockbuster to iron out all the bad name and till now movie looks a solid entertainer with a message.
Finally, Rajnikanth's Kaala could release for 27th April. As the strike in TFPC is still going we don't know what will producers of the movie decide but if it arrives on 27th April, then many would be expecting some box office records to tumble, if the movie mixes the superstar image and story well enough.
These are the most important releases of April and each one has its own importance in their respective cast and crew careers and trade. Let's see how will they perform.
