Just a month back, Vijay Antony was an anonymous name here and Chadalavada Padmavathi was some optimistic producer testing her luck releasing a Telugu dubbing film titled Bichagadu (Vijay Antony’s Tamil movie Pichaikaran). But today Bichagadu movie is one of the biggest blockbuster dubbing films ever released in the Telugu market.

Ask us why, today Bichagadu boxoffice collections are over Rs 18crores with just Rs 50lakhs investment. Yes… you read it right! The Telugu producers have bought the dubbing rights of Pichaikaran movie for just Rs 50 lakhs. The title ‘Bichagadu’ initially sounded weird but the same title pulled the crowds to the theatres. Bichagadu movie opened with a positive talk and rave reviews which in turn earned repeated audience for the film. Bichagadu movie recently completed 50days of successful run and the collections are still strong. Trade pundits opine that the movie was a bigger hit than the Tamil version.

Well, Bichagadu movie once again proved that ‘Content is the King’. Hope we get such meritorious films in Telugu cinema as well
