Note: I have sorted these movies in a sequential order (w.r.t. their release dates) and this effort of mine is not just a simple analysis but might help few small and fresh movie makers who wanted to understand and analyze the industry trends and various factors (including the actual content of the movie, the image of main cast and crew, the promotional activities, timing of release, and finally the team work) that turn a movie into a Hit or Fut...

Overall 2012, was a delightful year for the telugu film industry (Tollywood) for tasting 30% profit ratio....which was a rare feat!
