After a long time, two senior heroes will be fighting it out at the box office during the festive season. Akkineni Nagarjuna’s slick action thriller The Ghost will be pitted against Megastar Chiranjeevi’s political drama Godfather this Dasara season.
The makers of The Ghost announced the film’s release date as October 5th, and then the GodFather team also announced their movie on the same date.
As per the social media buzz, The Ghost is taking the upper hand in terms of excitement from the audience. The teaser and the promotional material received a positive response, and people are appreciating the efforts that had gone into the making. Also, because it is a new and original film, people are voting in favor of The Ghost.
On the other hand, Godfather is a remake of the Malayalam blockbuster Lucifer. Most of the audience has already seen the movie on OTT in the Telugu dubbed version. The teaser, which was released recently, also didn’t generate the required buzz. Maybe after ages, a Chiranjeevi film has no buzz at all.
Chiru might eventually win the opening collections because of his star power at the box office, but clearly, The Ghost has won on the buzz meter because of the goodwill of being original and something different.
