Small Screen Dasara Threat to Big Screens


Dasara-Threat-to-Big-ScreenThis Dasara, three films will be testing their luck at the box-office. Kanche, Columbus and Raju Gari Gadhi are releasing amidst decent expectations. The film trade really needs a solid Dasara season after the disappointing performance of Ram Charan’s Bruce Lee and Rudhramadevi limping towards the break-even point.

But, all the three new Dasara releases are being thrown a huge challenge with the television telecast of two of the biggest films this year. While Pawan Kalyan-Venkatesh’s multistarrer Gopala Gopala will be shown once again after its Ugadi premiere at 6 pm tomorrow, India’s biggest blockbuster Baahubali has its first ever TV premiere on Vijaya Dasami.

There is no doubt that the TV premieres of both these films will cause a severe dent in the box-office collections of the Dasara releases, apart from Rudhramadevi and Bruce Lee. Out of the two, it will be Baahubali which will cause the major damage and it is also expected to register highest TRPs in television history. However, thanks to the festive holiday advantage, all the new releases will have a good run after Vijaya Dasami.
