2014 Telugu Hits n Flops - Exclusive

on Dec 31, 2014

Way2movies brings you the list of Telugu hits and flops for the year 2014. One more year has passed and Tollywood has seen many small Telugu films passing with flying colours. Interestingly, half a dozen remake ventures made a superhit mark at the box office this year, besides a couple of noted flops.

It has been a bad year for Telugu movies with almost all the biggies biting dust starting with Mahesh Babu's 1: Nenokkadine. However, the streak is retrieved with in next two days with Ram Charan-Allu Arjun's Yevadu. At the same time 2014 is not a disaster, as films like Nayantara's Shekar Kammula directed Anamika and Aaha Kalyanam has a good share at the box-office due to bi-lingual release in Telugu and Tamil languages.

Unlike the regular love or revenge stories, directors in film nagar have made a mark with different genres in 2014. Chandamama Kathalu [Krishnudu, Lakshmi Manchu, Chaitanya, Saikumar, Naresh] Nara Rohith's Prathinidhi, Kotha Janta[Allu Sirish, Regina Cassandra], Prakashraj-Sneha starred Ulavacharu Biriyani and Paathshala [Nandu, Anu, Priya, Sirisha, Sai Kiran, Shiva, Sashaank] are few Telugu entertainers that falls under this category.

Ending the year 2014 with Christmas releases: Mega Prince Varun Tej's debut Mukunda and Nithin's Chinnadana Neekosam. Both garnered positive reviews with more than 1 Cr collections in the first week. Stay tuned to way2movies to know if they turned out to be blockbusters in long run.
