The theatrical business is stronger than ever. No wonder that films are competing with each other to take a share of it. Today, four films hit the screens.
‘Naandhi’ starring Allari Naresh and Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar is directed by newcomer Vijay Kanakamedala. Naresh has attempted a serious drama. The trailers and promos looked quite promising.
‘Chakra’ is Vishal’s latest action drama. The film is produced by Vishal himself. It is a thriller. Shraddha Srinath has played the female lead.
Sumanth starrer ‘Kapatadhaari’ is a murder mystery. The film is directed by Pradeep Krishnamurthy. ‘Pogaru’ is another dubbed movie that is releasing in a big way. It stars Dhruva Sarja and Rashmika Mandanna, ‘Pogaru’.
