Christmas is another big festival in India, and Tollywood has often treated the viewers some big ticket movies during this season. But surprisingly, there are no big movies from this industry this year. A few small budget Telugu films like Uyyala Jampala (UV), Prathinidhi and D for Dopidi (DFD) are set to rock the viewers this Christmas. Slated to hit the screen on December 20, they will clash with two much-awaited non-Telugu films like Dhoom 3 and Biriyani at the Box Office.
Nagarjuna's Uyyala Jampala is a family drama. Set against the backdrop of a small village called Koonavaram in Andhra Pradesh, the story of the movie is all about fun and emotions of a young couple. Balika Vadhu fame actress Avika Gor and Raj Tarun are making their acting debut with this film, which is directed by debutant Virinchi Varma. Its promos have added lot of hype for the movie.
Directed by Siraj Kalla, D for Dopidi is comedy entertainer staring Varun Sandesh, Sundeep Kishen, Naveen, Rakesh and Melanie Kannokada in the leads. The movie, which is produced by Go Goa Gone fame Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, has created headlines for several good reasons. Especially, its promos have created lot of curiosity among the film goers, who are eagerly waiting to watch it soon.
Prathinidhi, which is directed by debutant Prashanth Mandava, is a political drama featuring actor Nara Rohith and Shubra Aiyappa in the leads. Nara Rohith's look and dialogue diction featured in the trailer of the film have made the viewers wait with bated breath for the release of the movie. Experts from film nagar claim that this film will give a big break to Nara Rohith at the Box Office.
All these Telugu films are small budget movies and feature budding actors in the leads. Meanwhile, Aamir Khan's Dhoom 3 and Karthi's Biriyani, which are highly-talked about and most-anticipated movies of the year, are releasing in large number of screen with Telugu version in the state. Trade analysts feel that they will surely take a toll on the business of these Telugu movies.
