It has been nearly six months since the beginning of this year. We have completed five months and 10 days. However, so far viewers have seen only one block-buster. Unexpectedly ‘F2’ as comedy entertainer entered the list of block-busters and that too because there was no other movie to give it a competition. First half of ‘F2’ was good. Second half was boring. Still the viewers made this film a block-buster. ‘118’ movie which came subsequently was average. Though ‘Majili’ became super hit, the revenues were sufficient only to meet the cost of buying. ‘Jersey’ was also classic hit but collections were nil.
‘Maharishi’ was released amid high expectations and viewers had strong belief in it. However, it stopped near average. The only big film also proved a damp squib. ‘NGK’, ‘Seetha’ and ‘Hippi’ all flopped one after the other. Tollywood has completed half year but with just one block buster the box-office is deserted. This year only two projects will be coming before the audience. Their all hopes rest on ‘Saaho’ and ‘Sye Raa’ movies. We don’t know how these movies will fare. The audiences also have good expectations from movies like ‘Manmadhudu 2’ and Vijaya Devarkonda’s ‘Dear Comrade’. Let us see what will be the condition of Tollywood for the remaining half year.
