The first half of 2022 saw the release of some biggest films like RRR, Radhe Shyam, Acharya, Bheemla Nayak, and Sarkaru Vaari Paata. Except for RRR, most other films didn’t live up to the expectations.
There are no more exciting films from big stars to release in 2022 except for Balakrishna’s NBK107 in the direction of Gopichand Malineni. So now all eyes are on tier-2 star films. They must deliver big time to bring some life back to the ailing Tollywood industry.
According to trade experts, Vijay Deverakonda’s Liger and Nani’s Dasara are two films that might work at the box office.
Directed by Puri Jagannadh, Liger starring Deverakonda and Ananya Panday, is drawing good buzz on social media despite the mixed response to the trailer.
There is some decent hype around the film, and the trade is expecting some good numbers in the opening weekend.
Nani’s Dasara stars Keerthy Suresh and is touted to be a raw and rustic action drama. The film has a solid supporting star cast of Prakash Raj, Samuthirakani, Sai Kumar, and Rajendra Prasad.
The film has no buzz right now, but the inside reports suggest it might spring a pleasant surprise at the box office with its engaging content. Debutante Srikanth Odela is making his debut as a director with Dasara.
We have to see if any of these films turn out to be a dark horse, or they too will join the list of disappoints for the Tollywood industry.
