This weekend in Tollywood, three exciting new theatrical releases are set to hit the box office, Skanda, Chandramukhi 2, and Pedda Kapu – 1. Skanda, featuring Ram, directed by Boyapati Sreenu, and starring Sree Leela, is the most anticipated of the three.
Its potential success lies in Boyapati’s ability to deliver another commercial hit, riding on the momentum of Akhanda. Skanda’s release date is August 28. Chandramukhi 2, a sequel to the blockbuster Chandramukhi, is also releasing on August 28.
Lawrence, known for his winning horror comedies, hopes to continue the streak with this film, benefiting from the sequel’s advantage, provided it receives positive word of mouth. On September 29, Pedda Kapu – 1, an intense social drama directed by Srikanth Addala, will be released.
This genre is unexpected from Addala, but he expresses confidence in his work. For content-driven films with relatively unknown casts like these, success hinges on positive word of mouth. The long weekend with an October 2 holiday presents an advantage, and if these films can generate good buzz, their box office prospects look promising.
