Aagadu Pushed Into Tight Spot???


Trade circles are echoing a different opinion about the pushing of ‘Power’ release from September 5th to 12th. We couldn’t call it a conspiracy, but it is an act of saving their own investment which will now cost ‘Aagadu’ buyers. While ‘Power’ release postponement is purely due to delay in Censor Certificate issue, the question lies in why was the movie sent to Board much earlier.

In fact, buzz is that Rabhasa, Power and Govindudu Andarivadele are owned by same ‘big’ distributors in a couple of areas. Had ‘Rabhasa’ scored well, there would have been no issues. But Jr NTR’s colossal failure with a routine formulaic flick affected box-office returns severely. Main reason for deferring ‘Power’ release by another week is to give Rabhasa more time to recover some investment, say sources. Also if ‘Power’ releases on 12th, then Aagadu on 19th, and will it is possible for ‘Govindudu Andarivadele’ to bag theatres?

They say already Rabhasa theatres are in agreement to be given to ‘Power’ and from October 1st they will be over to Govindudu. In that case ‘Aagadu’ will have same limited theatres and may not be getting upper hand at good centers. Looks like, Mahesh film is being pushed into tight spot.
