Telugu audience has a particular trait which is not generally seen in other states. If the movie has a gripping story, people will definitely throng to the theatres to watch the movie. Best examples are movies like Aparichitudu, Bichagadu etc. Even though Vijay Anthony is a relatively unknown star, Bichagadu has raked in record collections. Now, the latest film of Sivakarthikeyan ‘Don’ too is being received by the Telugu audience very well. Even in the second week after its release, it’s going strong at the box office.
Telugu film producers need to realise that audience will never look at the budget being poured into a project unless it has some strength in it’s subject. A well planned project with a good story, binded script before shoot, proper casting, good pre-production will definitely get the deserved love from audience rather than a movie shot with extensive budget and no proper story. In this case, one has to agree that Tamil and Malayalam film makers are leaps and bounds ahead of their counterparts in Tollywood.
Fortunately, as of now, Telugu Film Industry has become the hub of movies in India. It’s allowing a wider stage for Telugu films and the comfort of a lavish budget. The makers and industry has to make use of this and churn out the best movies with perfect execution right from the script stage to finishing Post production. Spending hundreds of crores on a movie without proper story and then doing gimmicks to pull the audience will never help.
