Union Minister for Tourism and Civil Aviation Shri RajBahadhur congratulates Shri K.B.Thilak for producing “Kolleeti Kaapuram”!
“Gharshana” is one of the dubbed movies which made a huge impact at the box-office. The phenomenal success of this film and few others pushed the prices for dubbing rights to new levels till “Iddharu” crashed at the box-office. The below scan shows the weekly collections of this Karthik-Prabhu starrer at Devi 70mm, Hyderabad. Interestingly, young audience of the day connected to Karthik’s character though Prabhu has many powerful scenes in the movie.
Pretty interesting to see “Manchi Manushulu“, which debuted in 1974, had almost 200 less screenings than what “Bangaaru Babu” had. So much for the Superstar of 1970s. That reminds me of the famous quote by Adolf Hitler:
“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it”
