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. On that note, check out the sweet Size Zero
dub-smashes by star heroines as well as messages of star heroes for
