With each passing day, we are getting clarity on what is in store for us for the big Dussera festival. So, many medium budget flicks are planning their releases, but it is the clash of brothers that is drawing attention.
The ‘brothers’ in question are Sai Dharam Tej, Panja Vaisshnav Tej and Naga Chaitanya and Akhil. The dates of the former set are confirmed. However, the same isn’t yet done for the latter set. And it is easy to understand why.
Sai Dharam Tej’s Republic and Vaisshnav Tej’s Kondapolam are targeting different sets of audiences. There is no clash in a real sense between them.
But, when it comes to Akhil’s Most Eligible Bachelor and Naga Chaitanya’s Love Story, the audience is the same. The latter has bigger potential and wider classes to aim, but both belong to the same overall set of youth and family audiences.
It could be the reason why the makers of Love Story are in a fix. They have left things too late to make a decision. It is now only going to undercut the movie’s commercial prospects.
We have to wait and see how things pan out in the coming days. Anything is possible in the industry. In the past, the Akkineni father and son duo had clashed too. So, it’s not that it can’t happen. Everything is dependent on taking the right decision for the product at hand.
Whatever be the case, there is a good buzz in the trade over multiple well-cast films making it to cinemas during the festival period.
