Its an interesting battle at the box office this Friday with Anushka's Size Zero and late director Shoban's son debut film, Thanu Nenu. Though they are considered small films in terms of their budget, the kind of good buzz these films created, is something commendable.
Apparently, Anushka's different avatar, star power besides its striking story line have instantly attracted the moviegoers towards Size Zero. However its their unique promotions that is keeping the film in audiences minds, constantly. Rakul Preet Singh, Anasuya, Lakshmi Manchu, Poonam Kaur and many heroines have contributed their share of attention to Size Zero with their dub-smashes. Also, impressive posters, star cameos and colorful promotional stuff are doing the rest of the job.
Similarly, Thanu Nenu posters were enticing enough while the trailer of the film already revealed the plot of the film, creating a sense of curiosity on the film. Most importantly, stars like Mahesh Babu, Prabhas, Ravi Teja etc have stood for the debut actor Santhosh Shobhan and has promoted the film to encourage some new talent. This has surely turned the eyeballs to the film's side.
Meanwhile, its only tomorrow that we get to know the success rate of these 'Star Campaigns'. There is no doubt that the films were successful in getting registered with audience, but we must wait and see how far these promotions would pull the viewers to the theaters.
