Mr. Box Office of Telugu cinema, Ram Charan, seems to be undergoing a rough patch at the moment. Mega Power Star, who has more number of successful movies to his credit of late had to face a temporary setback due to back-to-back debacles at the box office.
The Krishna Vamsi directorial, Govindudu Andarivadele, which was touted as a family entertainer fizzled at the box office despite the star studded casting and positive word of mouth about the movie's audio. The movie ended up as an average grosser at the box office.
Govindudu Andarivadele was followed by the much anticipated movie, Bruce Lee-The Fighter. The movie was in constant tinkle as it reunited the movie's director, Srinu Vaitla and the writer, Kona Venkat, after quite some time.
The movie also marked the comeback of Megastar Chiranjeevi after a gap of 8 years through a cameo role. However, the movie miserably failed at the box office and ended up as a disaster.
Though the respective movies bombed at the box office, they managed to garner close to 40 Cr distributor share which is quite a sum for the experience and number of films, Cherry has done.
Despite back to back burners, Charan took the experimental path and accepted to remake Tamil blockbuster, Thani Oruvan. Though it was the screenplay which was the hero of the movie and Arvind Swamy, the antagonist being the show stealer, it took a lot of guts to accept such a movie and Charan was keen on delivering a quality content for his audience. His dedication in building a solid 6 pack abs for the movie was much appreciated and the teaser/trailer, songs gained positive response.
But due to the untimely release during the mid-exams and the effect of demonetization, Dhruva which although collected a share of 50 Cr, ended up just as an above average movie.
It now seems to be sure that Ram Charan Teja is determined to come back with a bang. The upcoming movie of the young actor is being captained by Sukumar who is known to deliver movies with intense screenplay and give a career best makeovers for his movie heroes.
Ram Charan has already impressed fans with his striking beard look and is said to be playing the challenging role of a visually impaired person. Charan's character seems to be set in a village backdrop with Samantha playing the female lead, which too is confirmed to be an exciting role.
Jagapathi Babu, who mesmerized audience with his uber cool antagonist role in Sukumar's Naanaku Prematho, has been roped in for the yet to be untitled movie and if reports are to be believed, Jaggu Bhai will be seen in a mass avatar.
Each development of RC11 seems to be interesting and also infers the fact that Charan is more focused on content than the usual formulaic based movies.
