Superstar Krishna

50 days ad of “PuliJudham”!

A sub-standard film from “UshaSri Creations”. The head of the production house P. Chinnappa Reddy became very popular in the film fraternity after the phenomenal success of Sobhan’s “Maanavudu-Dhaanavudu” in 1972.

“Saavaasagaalu” range in Eluru!

         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.

That makes it three in 1978!

             Simhagarjana was exhibited in SriRama Talkies and Venkateswara A/C in Vijayawada in the I week. The below ad mentions Maruthi theatre getting added from 01-09-78, 7 days from its date of release (25-08-1978). With this, Natasekhara Krishna is the only hero to have three movies with extended side theatre run in the city in the year.

               Krishna is also the only hero to have two successive movies with extended side theatre run in VJY in 1978.  Cheppindhi Chestha, after “Simhagarjana”, was released in three theatres in VJY &got its run extended in the side theatre (Sesh Mahal A/C) during its second week. Indhradhanassu was the first film to achieve the feat in 1978.
