Sensational Start To The Summer

Film trade pinned a lot of hopes on April releases when the film business has seen an all time low during the months of February and March.

It was key for April releases to perform in order to avoid further slump at the box office. Thankfully, summer season started off with a bang with Majili hitting the bull’s eye.

Majili turned out to be the biggest hit in Naga Chaitanya’s career and it was followed up by Chitralahari that was released on following Friday.

Sai Dharam Tej’s six film flop streak has come to an end with the film that has put up a decent show at the box office.

April 19 witnessed a clash between Jersey and Kanchana 3 and both the films turned out to be good hits.

Jersey has been termed as the best movie of the year while Kanchana 3 received brickbats from the critics. However, both the films turned out to be box office winners with Jersey dominating A centers and Kanchana 3 ruling the B and C centers.

Avengers: Endgame signed off April on a high note. Telugu cinema had an amazing April with a hit film on every weekend.

Trade is hoping that Maharshi will give the much needed mega boost with a blockbuster outing.
