Total Recall!



“Maayadaari Alludu” Town Record in Tanuku!

To get this numbers through a non- Raghavendra Rao/ Dasari directed movie is just incredible. This is the first of Krishna’s two town records in this centre within a gap of 1.5 months. Nayudu Gaari Abbaayi, releasing next, also created a town record at Srinivasa theatre. I think no other heroes had two movies that created two two records within 1.5 months. Release centres and other box-office details of this movie on its release anniversary.

Sensational openings for “Naayudu Gaari Abbaayi”

“Naayudugaari Abbaayi” took 1,78,503/- in its I week in Visakhapatnam from three theatres — Kamal, Sesh Mahal & Sri Sankar Picture Palace–and created an All Time Record. It created a new record by becoming the first picture to complete its 50 days run in the main theatre (Kamal) after releasing in three theatres. NGA is also one of the select movies to release in more than 1 new theatres —Venkateswara A/C in Rajamundry & Srinivasa Picture Palace in Tanuku. I will share the details of the other film in 1981 that i am aware which was released in more than 1 new theatre soon. Getting the release centres of NGA turned be to be a very expensive endeavour for me. But it was gratifying to see the the release centres of this movie in Visakhapatnam.

“PremaMandiram” (release chart and openings !

Date of release : 24 – 09-1981! VJY (Alankaar) record is disputable! But that is a topic for a different day. My father, an ardent fan of A.N.R., opined that the timing of this films’ release was wrong as audience (read his fans) were still under Premaabhishekam’s hangover.

The key take away for me from the openings’ ad of this musical film are its revenues at Kamal, Visakhapatnam. Never thought that it had that much capacity.

The I ad issued on Nov 1, 1981 mentions Kondaveeti Simham collecting 2,38,590/- at PadmaPriya A/C Kakinada during its first 23 or 24 days. Vetagadu, interestingly, collected 2,33,034 for 28 days in the same theatre almost three years before. The former’s collections was a town record while the latter movie revenues was a record for the two distribution territories – East and West.
