Hanu-Man movie, the latest superhero blockbuster, has dominated Telugu and Hindi markets but struggles in Tamil and Malayalam. Despite the popularity of Tollywood films like those by SS Rajamouli and Allu Arjun, several, including Prabhas projects and Chiranjeevi‘s Sye Raa, have failed to create an impact in these southern regions.
Despite good content, efforts by actors such as Nani to enter the Tamil and Malayalam markets were unsuccessful. The trend continues with films like Animal, starring Ranbir Kapoor, and Sandeep Reddy Vanga‘s creation, which saw remarkable success in Hindi and Telugu but failed to make a mark in Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
Hanuman follows suit, raking in impressive numbers in Hindi and Telugu but struggling to garner attention in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. The challenges suggest a reluctance among audiences in these regions to embrace films from other languages, with only a few big-budget exceptions breaking through the linguistic barriers. HanuMan’s underwhelming performance in Tamil Nadu and Kerala reflects the ongoing difficulty in bridging this cinematic gap.
