Balakrishna vs NTR : Routine vs Variety
Balakrishna vs NTR… Neither of the two Nandamuri heroes is ready to take a step back. They are both getting into the Sankranthi race by releasing their films during the festive season. While Nandamuri Balakrishna is coming up with a safe story in his 99th film Dictator, his nephew NTR is getting ready for the race with a sentimental film that has style touch. When trailers of both films are compared, Nannaku Prematho trailer looks fresh and interesting. But Balayya’s Dictator trailer lacks freshness. However, Dictator trailer has all elements that Balakrishna’s fans would enjoy. His fans not being tech savvy could be the reason for it. “Stylish and cool. Nannaku prematho seems a no-nonsense film”. This is what Rajamouli said after watching Nannaku Prematho trailer, which boosted confidence levels of young tiger NTR’s fans even more.
While Balakrishna and NTR are getting into a race, NTR has more risk than Balayya. Dictator is the 99th film of Nandamuri Balakrishna. There is more scope of Balakrishna introducing son Mokshagna to Tollywood after he does his 100th film and retiring after that to focus entirely on politics. Balakrishna has nothing much to do with the response of Dictator film, be it positive or negative. But coming to Jr. NTR, Nannaku prematho is his 25th film. His next is with director Koratala Siva. So, NTR is supposed to compete with young heroes like Prabhas, Allu Arjun, Mahesh Babu, Varun Tej, Ram Charan and others but not with a hero like Balakrishna who is probably nearing retirement. NTR has already fallen aback in the race of top young Tollywood heroes. In case Nannaku Prematho fails to impress audiences, NTR will be in danger zone. So, the Sankranthi box office race is very much important to NTR than to his uncle Balakrishna. While TDP followers are on Balakrishna’s side, movie lovers are supporting NTR. Of course there is no such thing that either of them would win the race. Both could score hits with their films. In case both Nannaku Prematho and Dictator fail at box office, Nagarjuna will be benefitted as his starrer Soggade Chinni Nayana will make much more money than expected. We have to wait two more weeks to know the result!
