Dull start to Telugu box office for New Year
Telugu Box Office has been going through tough times with several films failing to reach break-even status even after becoming hits and New Year's Day of 2020, did not start on an encouraging note.
Except for already in reckoning as a hit, Prathi Roju Pandaage, no other release found audiences at theaters. Beautiful film by Ram Gopal Varma, was thrashed by critics as Ugly.
Thoota by Dhanush and Gautham Vasudev Menon failed to even open to 40% house fulls and Raja Narasimha starring Mummotty was a complete washout.
Athade Srimannarayana, Kannada dub film found some critical acclaim but it's box office fortune in Telugu looks bleak as audiences found 3 Hours run-time too much for a film that has Kannada style of writing, which doesn't sync with Telugu audiences taste.
