Very Low Buzz On Chiru's Film. Why?
Any movie after such a big hit is expected to have high expectations and huge buzz. But 'Bholaa Shankar' is unable to grab the attention of the public.By: Tupaki Desk | 10 Aug 2023 12:21 PM GMT
Megastar Chiranjeevi is the uncrowned king of Tollywood till 2007. After 'Shankar Dada Zindabad', he took a break from movies and decided to focus on politics. Getting first day morning show tickets for a Chiranjeevi film used to be an achievement for people. The euphoria during the release of his movies were unimaginable. People used to stand in queues for hours together and his films got huge collections irrespective of the talk.
By the time he came back, the online bookings were in full flow and there is no need for people to push in front of the ticket windows anymore. Even then, his 'Khaidi No 150' had a lot of craze and hype was unread for 'Sye Raa' too. The bookings for 'Godfather' and 'Acharya' were decent too prior to the release despite the dip in hype. His craze was on full display during the release of 'Waltair Veerayya' once again. It turned out to be a blockbuster and earned huge profits during the Sankranti season of 2023.
Any movie after such a big hit is expected to have high expectations and huge buzz. But 'Bholaa Shankar' is unable to grab the attention of the public. As the film is a remake and Meher Ramesh is the director, there are very low expectations on the movie. Many expected Chiru's charisma to attract the crowd but the advance bookings are not that encouraging. Despite the bookings getting opened five days ago, the shows are not full. The bookings in multiplexes are especially low.
The audience are not willing to spend more than 250 rupees per ticket on 'Bholaa Shankar' and they are waiting for the talk to come out. With 'Jailer' getting positive reports, the movie is expected to face a big challenge as well. We need to wait and see how Megastar performs at the box office amidst all these odds.
