Though it might sound a bit of an exaggeration, there is a step motherly treatment from industry towards the small budget movies. The makers find it real hard to complete the film and then getting into the theatres is a real pain. Despite that, there are those who strive hard merely due to the passion they have for the craft.
However, the audience has no such differentiation. If the film offers good subject and substance, they will give it a red carpet welcome at the box office, In that process, one small budget movie is creating a sensation. We are talking about the recent release Karthikeya and many are dropping their jaws after looking at its collections.
According to the makers, the film has grossed a whopping 20 crores worldwide just from the 20 days of its running. The film is still running strong in nearly 150 theatres. This has elevated the hero Nikhil to a new range of success. But the big question is, will this movie pave the way for more offbeat subjects to bloom in Tollywood? Let us wait and watch.
