Fate of Tollywood (2011) - Chaitanya Kumar Vummethala

We eagerly wait for the results and individual rankings after writing exams (in academics), similarly in the world of telugu cinema (tollywood) this is the time to assess who did the best and what actually happened in the entire game - last year (i.e., in 2011)!

My brief analysis on Tollywood 2011, goes like this: 
To quickly start - there were about 116 straight telugu movies released in 2011, in addition to 126 dubbing movies (from all other languages) being dumped in Andhra Pradesh. Don't surprise by looking at this number surpassing the actual number of straight movie releases (though it's pity, is very common in this industry).

While the budget and collections of a particular movie is always unknown to the end movie lover (audience), even I don't want to get deeper into it (I am also one of the end movie lover) rather would love to express my opinion on the main motive of the movie and its influence on the common audience, i.e., making money (at least recovering the investment) by entertaining movie lovers, which is the ultimate motive of the commercial cinema. 

Though the above numbers summing to 242 (116+126), I chose to rate only 88 flicks (combining both category of movie releases), 70 Straight and 18 Dubbed Movies (these 88 being properly populated and promoted by its makers and created some expectations on the movie). The rest of 154 Movies are not even eligible to spend time on! Even makers opted not to spend money to promote these movies (they are already aware that these flicks are not going to yield profits for them, so they opt to keep quite - instead of spending more money on such useless movies).



Note: In case (or) By mistake if I missed any of the useful / good movie, I am sorry and please inform me by writing a small comment under this post, so that I will include such movies in the below table and change the entire dashboard!

Thus, I have rated a particular movie as one among the following 6 Categories:

1. Entertainer Fut (Straight Telugu Movie - if the motive being entertaining common audience but failed to do so). Total 40 Movies, have proved as Entertainer Futs (considering only few among all the movies released - as mentioned above).
