Krishna had two 100 days films in 1980 ( one direct) in what can be considered as one of the toughest years for film runnings in Guntur. In fact, Yedanthasthula Meeda and Sankaaraabharanam are the only other direct 100 days movies in the town till August.
Kottha Peta Rowdy revenues are a revelation. Though films like Sujatha and Seethaa Raamulu fared better during the latter part of the year at Bhaskar Deluxe, Kottha Peta Rowdy collected a staggering amount of Rs 55,512/- in its first week and created a theatre record there. But I am not at all surprised by the revenues of “Bandoodu-Gundamma” as it had superb openings everywhere.
