Especially in January, there was a lot of competition between Waltheru Veeraiah and Veera Simha Reddy. While Waltheru Veeraiya was a blockbuster out of those two, Veera Simha Reddy became a hit. The heir who came in the form of dubbing was a flop. Shahrukh Pathan became a hit in Telugu. It brought profits. Many films such as Hunt, Malikapuram, Valentine Nights, Kalyanam Kamaniyam were released in that month.
In the same February, writer Padma Bhushan seemed to be a hit. If not, there are criticisms on the collections. Many films like Michael, Buttabomma, Amigos, Veda, Sridevi Shobhan Babu came out. But none of them could impress the audience. Dhanush sir movie became a hit. Bhagyamu Vishnu’s story seemed to be irrelevant. So in the month of February, the movie Sir has taken over the Tollywood box office.
Tollywood box office was a bit busy in the month of March. The hit track took off with force in early March. Many films like CSI Sanathan, Palana Girl Palana Boy, Kabja, Organic Mama Hybrid Alludu have been doing the rounds. Finally a blockbuster came with Dussehra. But Das Ka Dhamki has managed to make the collection seem okay. Dussehra entered the hundred crore club and became a blockbuster hit.
Ravi Teja’s Ravanasura, Meter and Shakunthalam which came in the month of April were flopped as soon as they arrived. Sai Dharam Tej Virupaksha was the only blockbuster. So far, at least one movie per month has been a blockbuster. In the month of May, movies like Rama Banam, Naresh Ugram, Naga Chaitanya’s Custody, All Good Omens were hit. They became disasters. Bicchagadu 2, which came in dubbing category, became the hit of 2018. Meme Famous has had somewhat mixed results.
When it comes to June.. All the films like Neu Student Sir, Pareshaan, Ahimsa, Intinti Ramayanam, Sunny Unstoppable, Manucharitra, Bheemadevarapalli Branchi, Spy, Mayapetika, Narayana and Co. were disasters. Samajavaragamana alone became a blockbuster this June and took the breath away of Tollywood.
In July, many films such as Naga Shaurya Rangbali, Rudrangi, Bhaag Sale, Har, Slum Dog Husband turned out to be disasters. But it seems that Bro the Avatar has suffered losses. There is only one blockbuster this month. The short film Baby became an unexpected success. Baby came and stood close to one hundred crores.
In August, LGM, Mistake, Ustad, Mr. Pregnant, Prem Kumar, Gandivadhari Arjuna, Boys Hostel turned out to be disasters. Bhola Shankar it remains a big disaster. Bedurulanka 2012 was a great success. Although the talk of King of Kotha was good, it could not get the collections. Rajinikanth’s Jailer, which came out in the same month, became a blockbuster.
Good films came in September. Even though Khushi brought losses in some places, she raised dust overseas. Miss Shetty Mr. Polishetty became a blockbuster hit. Shahrukh Khan’s movie Jaawan also brought good profits. Changure Bangura Raja, Mark Antony, Sapta Sagara Dati, Skanda, Chandramukhi 2 and Peda Kapu failed to generate profits. Skanda and Chandramukhi 2 however gave good stuff to trollers and memers.
In October, films like Rules Ranjan, Mama Mashchindra, Month of Madhu, 800, God, Sagileti Katha, Tiger Nageswara Rao were released. Although Tiger Nageswara Rao got good appreciation in terms of making, it was not a commercial hit. Leo, Bhagwant Kesari and Mad brought good profits.
Polimera 2 became a hit in the month of November. Keeda Cola has brought profits. Kotabommali also fetched good collections. Films like Spark, Saptha Sagara Dati Side B, Tiger 3, Jigarthanda 2, Shiv Rajkumar’s Ghost turned out to be disasters. Adikesava Atler remains a flop. On Tuesday, the movie got good collections.
Coming to December.. Animal Telugu version did well. Animal has been successful in bringing profits. Hi Nanna got good reviews as well as good collections. An Extraordinary Man is a disaster. Movies like Zoruga Husharuga, Shantala and Priyadu were released but failed. Salar is gathering dust now. And Devil will come on December 29. Suma’s son Roshan is coming on December 29 as Bubble Gum. The results are yet to come. In any case, Tollywood has been going up and down this time. But with at least one blockbuster hit every month, there was a buzz at the box office.
