The Dasara festival saw the release of five films last week. Though all those films reasonably cashed it on the holiday and festive mood, the winner of the game is Naga Chaitanya.
Among the five films including Jaguar, Mana Voori Ramayanam, Abhinetri, Eedu Gold Ehe and Premam, Chaitu’s Malayalam remake is running in packed houses.
Trade pundits predict the movie to be Chaitu’s best one as single hero . The movie collected over 16+ crores in its first week run .
Sunil’s Eedu Gold Ehe turned out to be damp squib at the box-office, this is the 2nd disaster for Sunil after Krishnastami in 2016.
Despite positive reviews and ratings, Prakash Raj’s Mana Oori Ramayanam is a complete washout at the box-office as it has been dropped from all the screens.
While Dubbed films Abhinetri and Jaguar are doing okay in mass circuits, although both will end up as loss ventures by considering the high production costs.
Earlier, Nagarjuna emerged as Sankranthi hero competing with Nandamuri heroes like Jr.NTr and Balakrishna. Both Father Nagarjuna and Son Naga Chaitanya from Akkineni Family have emerged as Festival Heroes in 2016 .
