Tollywood Disasters 2023 | Any year disasters are common. The same thing happened in 2023. There were at least three disasters a month. In that too, as there are more films of star heroes, the losses are also in the same range. And in 2023, let’s look at the movies that have disappointed in the midst of huge expectations.
Om Raut’s movie Aadipurush with Prabhas as the hero came amid huge expectations and turned out to be a disaster. The film has lost around 100 crores in Telugu and Hindi combined. Even after gross collection of more than 350 crores, the losses are huge as the business has gone beyond that.
Bhola Shankar movie directed by Meher Ramesh starring Megastar Chiranjeevi released on August 11. It also turned out to be a bigger disaster than expected. Even a movie that came after a blockbuster like Waltheru Veeraiya could not bring in openings at least. This movie brought losses of around 55 crores.
Surender Reddy’s Spy Thriller Agent with Akhil Akkineni as the hero has brought losses of over 40 crores. AK Entertainments said that they have spent 80 crores for this film. But the collections are not even at least 10 crores. The losses were more than expected.
Sakunthalam is a mythological movie directed by Gunasekhar with Samantha in the lead role. Gunasekhar spent a lot of money for this. But the losses also came in the same range. Released in April, the film did not even fetch a share of at least 10 crores. Even the summer season did not help Sakunthalam. As the budget was more than 60 crores, the losses were more than 50 crores.
Ravanasura, Tiger Nageswara Rao:
Ravi Teja, who received a blockbuster with Waltheru Veeraiya, has completely failed to continue the same momentum. If Ravanasura, which was released in the summer, brought losses of around 15 crores, Tiger Nageswara Rao’s film which came on Dussehra also brought losses of more than 15 crores. Ravi Teja lost 30 crores in the same year with these two films.
Even 2023 did not come together for Naga Chaitanya, who has been in consecutive defeats for two or three years. This year he came with the film Custody directed by Venkat Prabhu. It didn’t even collect the minimum 5 crore share. What’s more, the audience has no idea that the movie is called Hard. From this the disaster range is understood.
2023 did not go well for Mega Heroes. Pawan Kalyan and Sai Dharam Tej’s first movie Bro brought a loss of around 30 crores. The movie directed by Samudrakhani has done a lot of business, so it has lagged far behind in the collections. Bro, who came with a target of 90 crores, stopped at 65 crores.
Producer BVSN Prasad said that the movie Gandhivadari Arjuna starring Varun Tej under the direction of Praveen Sattaru has been produced with a budget of more than 50 crores. But this movie did not get at least 5 crore collections. The losses were very terrible.
Mega’s nephew Vaishnav Tej is still waiting for the success of that range after the movie Uppena. This year, the movie Adikesava starring him came out. Directed by new director Srikanth N Reddy, this movie opened on the first day. Adikeshav did not collect at least 5 crores in full run.
Nitin’s streak of defeats continued this year as well. Extraordinary Man directed by Vakkantham Vamsi remained a favorite for three days. Even the openings of this movie were not correct. Nithin’s movie is completely clear with Hi Nana on the opposite side.
Not only these, Kalyan Ram’s three-starrer Amigos, Nikhil’s pan-Indian movie Spy, Sudheer Babu’s Hunt, Mama Mashchindra, the audience also have no idea that they have come and gone.
