The first image has the 50 days movies list of Superstar Krishna in Eluru till 1980. The scan also mentions the revenue details of some of his films in the town.  Krishna’s statement in the 100 days function of Saavaasagallu “ (” Idhi Nadichina chithram kaani, nadipinchina chithram kaadhu”) came to my mind when I went through the list first as the movie collected a whopping amount of Rs 1,62,000/- in its full run in Eluru. To put things in perspective, A.N.R.’s “Aaalumagalu”, which released in Mar-1977 in the same year created a town record by grossing 1,89,000/- in 62 days at the fancier theatre Ambica A/C. It’s  a shame to note that the distributors (Navayuga Pictures) and the producer (D.Rama Naidu) of Saavaasagaallu down played such an incredible achievement.
