This Sankranthi is gonna be a feast for the Telugu movie lovers with grand releases of three films at the box-office. Legendary actor cum politician N.T.Ramarao’s biopic from his son Nandamuri Balakrishna followed by Ramcharan’s action-packed Vinaya Vidheya Rama and a family entertainer F2 will be out to mesmerize the movie lovers. There is no scope for other low budget films when three biggies hit the marquee at the same time. Despite being aware of this fact, Rajinikanth's Tamil dubbed film Petta also joined the race.
As these films confirmed their arrival three months before and the distributors who bought rights started booking theatres then itself. But now, Petta producer Ashok Vallabhaneni crying on these three biggies which left no scope for the Rajini’s film to get a decent number of screens until Jan 20.
Initially, Petta didn’t grab the attention of the producers here due to the downfall of the Rajini’s market post-Robo 2.0. Finally, Ashok Vallabhaneni bagged the rights in the last minute and decided to release along with VVR, NTR’s biopic and F2 on Jan 10th. But it seems too silly blaming others instead of themselves for entering the competition late.
This conspiracy is now taken to next level as Tollywood producers not encouraging the dubbed movies. What is the need of releasing a dubbed film amid heavy competition in the festive season despite knowing the fact that there aren't enough screens available? They could have released it a week later rather blaming others for their mistakes.
