Summer 2020 – Akhil4 Facing The HeatAfter the disastrous failure of the debut, Akkineni Akhil has been given a launch and re-launch with successive films, Hello and Mr Majnu. The latter two were decent, but they couldn’t get big numbers for one reason or the other.

Still, the first three movies of Akhil were hot combinations with in-form directors, at the time the movies went to the floor. The fourth film from Akhil doesn’t have the same cushion; it is directed by now entirely forgotten Bhaskar of Bommarillu and Parugu fame. But, fans are hopeful due to the production house.

Having said that, the hopes among the fans is slowly diminishing as the heat is increasing on Akhil4. Summer 2020 is getting crowded and fans, who were of the expectations that Akhil4 would get the best planning – date wise, are slowing resigning of that happening.

As we have mentioned a few times earlier, summer 2020 will be crowded with second league heroes. Be it the start, or the middle or the end, there will be multiple releases. Amidst, there will be few dubbed biggies as well.

Right now, Ugadi, Good Friday and April 14th (BR Ambedkar Jayanthi) holidays are taken. It leaves one with the second half of the summer. During that time, a Naga Chaitanya film (with Sekhar Kammula) is planned to release. It will be an in-family competition if that happens, which would be dividing the fans.

Maybe the makers of Akhil4 are super confident of the product. If that is the case, the summer is vast and the movie can be accommodated anywhere. Remember 100% Love? The movie came in a very competitive summer in a normal weekend and proved to be career-best of Naga Chaitanya and second-best of the season. Akkineni fans would definitely be hoping for a repeat. Let’s see how things pan-out.
