Tollywood has seen a series of biggies in the last couple of months. First, it was Bheemla Nayak that hit the screens in February. This was followed by Radhe Shyam and RRR in March and finally, KGF2 was released in April.
While this has been a big joyous occasion for movie lovers, it has also created new problems for them. Each of these movies released with ticket hikes and even the upcoming Megastar film Acharya has received hike permissions. This is causing major problems for a lot of middle-class audiences who simply cannot afford a family outing to theatres.
Now this effect is clearly showing on Acharaya. The advance bookings are not up to the mark even and with a solid combination of Charan and Chiranjeevi, the buzz in the family audience is quite low. The rising ticket prices are also expected to impact upcoming biggies such as Sarkaru Vaari Paata and F3 which will release next month.
With Tollywood biggies struggling to attract audiences to the theatres, it has already turned out to be a bad time for smaller films as well. It needs to be seen if the movie industry takes a step in this direction or not.
