Just last week we were mentioning about how the Tollywood folks were preparing for bygones be bygones and anticipating that the New Year will begin on a bright note with ‘Agnyaathavasi’ and ‘Jai Simha’. The Sankranthi season is always sentimental for the Telugu folks because that sets the momentum for the rest of the year.
However, the bitter truth has come out and we are off to a very bad start. As per the latest collections, it is clear that ‘Agnyaatavasi’ is heading to become a major disaster. On the other hand, ‘Jai Simha’ has emerged with below average talk. The only hope lies in the small budget ‘Rangula Ratnam’ featuring Raj Tharun.
Some trade analysts are hopeful that ‘Jai Simha’ might scrape through safely because of the festival momentum and the craze for Balayya among the masses. On the other hand ‘Gang’ the dubbed movie from Tamil featuring Suriya looks promising but overall it has been a very bad start for the Tollywood folks.
