Telugu Sankranth Movie Releases Controversy
Telugu Sankranth Movie Releases Controversy

Idlebrain’s film critic, Jeevi, sheds light on the ongoing debate of the Telugu producers council as ‘Varisu’, ‘Waltair Veerayya’, and ‘Veera Simha Reddy’ clash at the box office

The Covid-19 pandemic affected a lot of industries, including the field of cinema. While several theatre owners had no option but to shut down operations during the lockdown, only a few such theatres had the fortune of reopening for business. Tollywood took its time to recover from the losses incurred from the lockdown and currently basks in success after the likes of RRR and Pushpa contributed to the industry’s recovery. The upcoming Sankranthi has two of the biggest Telugu releases locking horns with one another; Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Waltair Veerayya and Nandamuri Balakrishna-starrer Veera Simha Reddy

However, the Telugu Film Industry has another issue to deal with apart from the two biggies’ box office clash. Thalapathy Vijay’s ‘Varisu’, which will be released in the Telugu States by Dil Raju as Vaarasudu, is also slated for a Sankranthi 2023 release. After reports surfaced that the Tollywood producer had bagged a majority of screens for ‘Vaarasudu’, the Telugu Producers Council put out a statement asking for straight Telugu releases to be prioritised over dubbed movies, especially during festive seasons. While producer Aswini Dutt voiced against the council and stated that Tamil Nadu plays a role in Telugu movies’ success by allotting theatres, film critic Jeevi has tweeted about the Tamil state closing the doors for Megastar’s Godfather.

Today, Idblebrain’s Jeevi took to social media to provide his take on the ongoing issue. The film critic wrote, “#Godfather was denied release in Tamil Nadu as #PS1 was into second week.” Jeevi further expressed how ‘Varisu’ on the other hand has bagged more theatres than Telugu releases. Jeevi added, “However, Tamil #Varisu/#Varasudu is likely to get more theatres in Telugu states than for straight big star films like #WaltairVeerayya & #VeeraSimhaReddy for Sankranthi festival! Theatres vunnode Raju!” The film critic took an indirect dig at Dil Raju in the end.
