We have completed the first half of 2019. It is that time to figure out what clicked and flopped for Tollywood in these last six months. In January, Victory Venkatesh and Mega Prince Varun Tej’s F2 is a big blockbuster. In February, YSR Biopic, Yatra was an average. March had seen Kalyan Ram coming to form with 118 and it ended up as an average. The month also saw Ram Gopal Varma’s controversial film, Lakshmi’s NTR being a breakeven despite releasing late in AP.
Summer has been slightly better this time with Majili being a blockbuster, Chitralahari Average, Jersey, and Maharshi ended up as hits. Agent Sai Srinivas Athreya which released in June turned out to be average due to its shoestring budget. Brochevarevarura which released the last Friday had a good start and Tapsee’s Gameover was a safe bet due to multiple languages release. Coming to the failures, NTR Kathanayakudu, NTR Mahanayakudu, Vinaya Vidheya Rama, Mr Majnu, ABCD, and Sita have failed at the box office in the first half.
