This February second week as come to life not because of the kind of films but because of the heroes who are doing them.
Normally, Tholi Prema and Inttelligent would have been regular romance and commercial films if they were not pitted against each other. With Varun Tej and Sai Dharam Tej, being the heroes and them releasing their films in the same week, the films have become huge talking points.
Are the two young Mega heroes fighting outside the box office in personal life as well? No, such kind of clashes are not present in the Mega family as the elders imbibed much respect among the siblings. Even though fans fight in their names but we never see Ram Charan and Allu Arjun at war of words.
Also, Sai Dharam and Varun Tej wished each other best luck for their releases too. So, who is at advantage here?
We think both are even. As Sai Dharam Tej is coming with a big commercial director like VV Vinayak after a huge hit and Varun Tej is coming with a debutant director, Venky Atluri, after huge commercial success, Fidaa, both seemed too sailing on same boat.
B and C centres will be the first ones to lap up a good VV Vinayak film and A, Overseas centres first to lap up a romance like Tholi Prema. In the end of it all, if we analyse their box office strengths and weaknesses, both the films of the actors feel like coming with same baggage and weight of expectations.
Both the actors and directors, need to prove themselves. Varun Tej needs another hit and this more centered around him as Sai Pallavi took maximum credit for Fidaa and Sai Dharam Tej needs a big hit to end the disaster rut he dug for himself. Venky Atluri needs to prove his talent and VV Vinayak needs to prove that he is still a huge mass director as Khaidi No. 150 credit went to Megastar Chiranjeevi's return to cinema more than him.
Will it be a win-win situation for both of them? Or will it be one team laughing to the bank while other sadly re-examine lost opportunities?
