“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.


100 days ad of “SapthaPadhi”!

“GopalaKrishnudu” (1982), which was the movie that was announced on the 100 days of “Sapthapadhi”,  is the only hit film for Bheemavarapu Bucchi Reddy with A.N.R.  He is one of the few producers to make movies with the same actor (lead) in three consecutive years. Amarajeevi (1983) & Vasantha Geetham (1984) are the other films which he produced with A.N.R.

The movie was made in Cinemascope. Small wonder that Telugu Film Industry holds the record for making the most number of movies in CinemaScope in India.

Here are the release centres of Kamal Hassan’s “Amaavasya Chandrudu”  This was his own production (Hassan Brothers). The movie was released on 29/8/1981 and it did not do well at the box-office.
