Hyderabad: In the recent past Christmas has emerged as a good season for movies to release. It was considered to be dull season because of cold but now it has gained popularity with the filmmakers because its holiday season and the audience has ample time and money to spend on movies. It is two full weeks of holidays as Christmas is followed by New Year festivities. The makers want to cash in on the holiday season. In Bollywood, some of the biggest blockbusters have released during this season like PK, Dangal and Tiger Zinda Hai.
Now the Tollywood makers are also realizing the benefit of releasing in the Xmas weekend. Ravi Teja’s Disco Raja in the direction of VI Anand is one such movie that is targetting the Dec 20 release date. Disco Raja stars Tollywood’s Turkey Kodi Nabha Natesh and the sizzling Payal Rajput opposite Mass Maharaja. The film is a science fiction of sorts and is touted as a complete family entertainer with ample dose of comedy and action.
The Other movie is the much-hyped Nandamuri Balakrishna starrer in the direction of KS Ravikumar. This yet-to-be-titled film #NBK105 was poised to release around Sankranthi. But that season is already crammed with too many biggies. So the producer C Kalyan is now eyeing for a Dec 20 release for this Nandamuri mass masala entertainer which has Vedika and Sonal Chauhan opposite Balakrishna.
Other films that are targetting the Xmas season are Sai Dharam Tej’s Prati Roju Pandaage and Vijay Devarakonda’s World Famous Lover. Can Christmas season handle so many films, which film will clash and which will back out, which will emerge winner and which will lose… all these questions will be answered only in the month of December.
