The summer holiday season has almost come to an end. In Telangana, schools are resuming on June 1st, while in Andhra Pradesh schools begin ten days later. However, the major holiday period is over now.This summer we had seen three major blockbusters – ‘Rangasthalam’ in March, ‘Bharat Ane Nenu’ in April and the entire month of May belongs to ‘Mahanati’.
The month of May saw major release of Allu Arjun’s ‘Naa Peru Surya’ that went onto become a disaster at the box-office as the film has barely collected Rs 50 Cr leaving distributors in nearly 40% losses.Five days later ‘Mahanati’ hit the screens. The film saw ordinary openings but it picked up the steam with glowing reviews and terrific word-of-mouth. It saw great run throughout this month and killed the prospects of all other releases.
Puri Jagannadh’s ‘Mehbooba’ starring his son Akash Puri turned out to be turkey.Vijay Antony’s dubbed movie ‘Kaasi’ sank without a trace and Ravi Teja’s big movie ‘Nela Ticket’ had no takers at the ticket window.Naga Shaurya’s family drama ‘Ammamma Gaarillu’ too failed to attract the audiences.
All in all, Keerthy Suresh starrer ‘Mahanati’ emerged as true winner in May.
