2016 pongal is going to be more colorful for Nandamuri fans. The films of two Supreme Nandamuri heroes is going to release in the same week. Other films that were due to release this Pongal have been postponed, so all eyes are set on Balakrishna and NTR movies.
Sukumar’s directorial NTR starrer Nannaku Prematho is scheduled to release on January 13th, and much awaited Balakrishna’s Dictator directed by Sriwass is releasing on January 14th. Dictator is Balakrishna’s 99th movie.Twelve years before, that is in 2004 January NTR’s Andhrawala was released and in the same year, January 14th Balakrishna’s Lakshmi Narasimha was released too.
Lakshmi Narsimha turned out to be a blockbuster whereas Andhrawala was rated as average. All Balakrishna’s films which were released on Sankranthi collected great moolah and stood as blockbusters, and it has become his great sentiment.On the other hand Andhrawala the only NTR film released during pongal didn’t get good reviews.
Let’s wait and see the reel fight of these two Nandamuri heroes this festival.
