For many rationalists, sentiments are nothing but silly beliefs but there are many in the Telugu Film Industry who strongly believe in sentiments than anything else. Success is very fragile in the cinema circuit and that stroke of luck is extremely important. True to their belief, even these sentiments also don’t disappoint them.
The reason for this topic is the release date of the movie ‘Mahanati’ which happened on a Wednesday. Traditionally, every movie releases on Friday but this one came on Wednesday raising eyebrows. It is here that the sentiment angle comes in. 28 years ago, a movie came on the same date from the same house of producers.
It is ‘Jagadeka Veerudu Athiloka Sundari’. In that, the Athiloka Sundari Sridevi is seen in more prominence. Though it is not a female-oriented flick, the plot revolves around her. Today, ‘Mahanati’ has come on the same date and the core focus is also a female. Both the movies have become blockbusters so the sentiment has worked again.
