Tollywood experienced terrific success in the month of August with three blockbusters—Karthikeya-2, Sita Ramam, and Bimbisara. Three of these movies have raked in a tonne of cash at the box office and are still doing well even today. The September releases, such as “Brahmasatra” and “Oke Oka Jeevitham,” which received a resounding reception from the general people, also contributed to the momentum.
Three Telugu movies—Aa Ammayi Gurinchi Meeku Cheppali by Sudheer Babu, Neku Meeku Baaga Kavalsinavaadini by Kiran Abbavaram, and Saakini Daakini by Sudheer Varma—were released this week. None of these movies had a lot of excitement before they came out, but the industry was expecting one of these three movies to come out on top. However, the audience and reviewers’ reactions to all of these movies, which were just released in theaters, have ranged from neutral to unfavourable.
Aa Ammayi Gurinchi Meeku Cheppali, directed by Sudheer Babu, was met with high expectations from the audience but reportedly underwhelmed on opening day. It is disheartening to note that even Mahesh Babu’s followers are not supporting this actor.
Saakini Daakini from Suresh Productions apparently generated more money today than it did yesterday, but the numbers are in no way comparable to the celebrity cast. Despite Nivetha and Regina’s outstanding performances, the audience had varied feelings about this movie. They contend that movies like this need to be made available on OTT platforms.
“Nenu Meeku Baaga Kaavalisinavadini,” by Kiran Abbavaram, failed miserably. The young actor is more concerned with conducting pointless PR stunts than with his career and scripts. The audience rejected his recent film.
We’ll have to wait and see how these movies do throughout the weekend.
