The count of political drama movies in Telugu is very less. Rana debuted into the industry with such movie Leader. Tamil hero Karthi also ventured a movie Sakuni in that genre. Also, Jagapathi Babu's Adhinetha movie belongs to this category. But the results of these movies itself is a hint that no such movie became a blockbuster at the box office. But it seems like the trend has finally changed and two political drama films became blockbusters at the box office.
First one is creative director Sukumar's Rangasthalam movie starring Ram Charan. This mega Hero has absolutely mesmerized the audience with his outstanding performance as sound engineer Chittibabu and topped the non-Baahubali records in the industry. The entire movie is based on the politics in Rangasthalam village and it is a story of two brothers who stood against the president and his evil deeds. The movie created sensations at the box office. After 20 days of its release, Mahesh Babu's Bharath Ane Nenu hit the theatres.
When the Mega power star movie only showed the politics in a single village Mahesh Babu focus on the politics in the entire state. Mahesh did his career-best performance as a chief minister in the movie. The movie is also earning fortunes at the box office. On May 4th, Allu Arjun's Naa Peru Surya which also has a political touch to it is going to get released. In this Vakkantham Vamsi's directorial, Allu Arjun played the role of a military man. So, the audience is expecting that the story also concentrates on the country politics.
If the rumours turn out to be true, then Charan movie showed the village politics, Mahesh's movie focussed on the state politics whereas Surya's movie is going to discuss the politics national wide. Let's wait and see how the movie is going to be. If Naa Peru Surya also broke the records of these two films, then we can expect more of these political drama films in the future.
