The festival season usually sets a stage for big budget movie releases. Big releases, Clash of films, Producers tensions, fans hungama, film folks reviews, this is what we see for every festival in Tollywood. But the case is quite different for this Diwali. The lightening festival has ended up with no big blasts. The Telugu film industry has only seen just a couple of small releases this time. Prakash Raj and Bhumika starrer ‘Collector Gaari Bhaarya’ is the only original Telugu film that was released and ‘Shopping Mall’, a dubbed film of Tamil version titled Angadi Theru has been released.
However, this is not the case with Bollywood and Kollywood. Bollywood saw two big releases Golmaal 3 starring Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor and Action Replayy starring Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai in the lead roles while, on the other hand Kollywood also had four big releases, Uthamaputhiran, Mynaa, Va Quarter Cutting, Vallakottai for this Diwali.
