In the world of cinema, sentiments and track records hold significant sway over a movie's success. The Telugu Film Industry is no exception, placing great importance on these factors.

When two heroes clash at the box office, the one who emerges victorious gains serious recognition, and this trend continues until the other hero manages to reverse it.

Despite being a bigger star, Nandamuri Balakrishna has consistently faced major failures whenever he has clashed with the Mass Maharaja Raviteja, who emerges as the winner. As Dasara approaches this year, fans eagerly anticipate another clash between Raviteja and Balakrishna, hoping for a turnaround in Balakrishna's fortunes.

In 2008, Balakrishna's "Okka Magadu" and Raviteja's "Krishna" were released simultaneously. While "Okka Magadu" failed miserably, "Krishna" proved to be a super hit.

The pattern repeated in 2009 with Balayya's "Mitrudu" flopping and Raviteja's "Kick" becoming a career-defining success. Their third clash in 2011 saw "Parama Vera Chakra" bomb while "Mirapakay" achieved success. Throughout these clashes, Raviteja emerged as the clear winner.

Now, with Raviteja's "Tiger Nageswara Rao" and Balakrishna's "NBK108" set for release on Dasara 2023, everyone wonders if Balakrishna can reverse the sentiment and seek his revenge. The answer to this burning question will be revealed in the next five months.
