Tollywood hoped 2018 would begin with a bang, just like the past year. Megastar Chiranjeevi who made a comeback with Khaidi No. 150 on January 11th, 2017 broke all the existing box-office records (non-Baahubali) and went on to collected Rs. 100 crores share. Even Balakrishna’s 100th film, ‘Gautamiputra Satakarni’ emerged as a super hit at the 2017 Tollywood box-office.
Though 2017 started with a bang, TFI did manage to maintain the momentum through the year. The year saw a good number of films that shined at the box office films. We had blockbusters in the form of Baahubali – The Conclusion, Khaidi No.150, Arjun Reddy and Fida. While Gautami Putra, Shatamanam Bhavathi, Nenu Local, Jai Lava Kusa, and Mahanubhavudu emerged as super hits. Films like Ninnu Kori, Anando Brahma, Raju Gari Gandhi and Raja the Great were recorded as hits at the box office.
But this year, Agnyaathavaasi and Jai Simha, that released on Jan 10th and Jan 12th, toppled at the box office. Agnyaathavaasi which grossed $1.51M for its US premiers ended up collecting mere $45K on its second day. The expectations on Balakrishna’s ‘Jai Simha’ rose all of a sudden with the film’s trailer. The powerful dialogues and action sequences coupled with sentiment and glamour failed to impress the audience.If the same is to continue, the Telugu audience and TFI needs to brace itself for more to come.
