As both films are made with a big budget, it is highly impossible that they reach breakeven in just one week. Films like 'Baahubali' are an exception but it usually takes more than two weeks for any big film to reach the break-even mark. So, people are criticizing that both the Sankranti releases are bloating the figures because of the competition.
Team of 'Ala Vaikunthapuramlo' are saying that they created non-Baahubali records in Nizam, Vizag, Krishna, East, West, Ceeded, Nellore and Guntur areas just in four days. They are claiming that they created this record in 7 territories. On the other hand, 'Sarileru Neekevvaru' team are saying that they created non-Baahubali records in Nizam, East and Nellore regions. All-time record in West Godavari and break-even in East, Guntur and Vizag areas. All of these in just 5 days.
Both the filmmakers are claiming that they broke non-Baahubali records and it is becoming hard to believe them in the social media era. Any person with minimum common sense can ask how can both the films create non-Baahubali records. What do you think?
Does this mean all the records of 'Rangasthalam' are broken? People throwing satires at the makers saying that they might claim to have broken 'Avatar' and 'Avengers' records in the coming weeks. They are saying the producers to at least think before releasing such numbers to media. Let us see if producers guild gets involved and stops this race from getting even dirtier.
