Dr.Rajasekhar’s action-thriller Kalki and RX 100 fame Karthikeya’s romantic action drama Hippi released in the month of June, 2019.
HIPPI – Hippi is a youthful romantic action film Directed by T.N.Krishna and produced by Kalaipuli S.Thanu starring Kartikeya and Digangana in lead roles. Karthikeya carried his fame of RX 100 to make a place in Tollywood but his plan failed big time. A typical love story with pale narration is the main drawback of the film making it dud at the box-office by collecting just 0.92 Cr share when Theatrical rights were bought for 6 times the amount it collected i.e.; 6 Cr.
KALKI – With Garudavega success in 2018 Dr.Rajasekhar got into form in Tollywood again and he grabbed the attention of film lovers which made us curious about his next projects. In 2019 he released his action thriller film Kalki directed by awe fame Prasanth Varma starring Adah Sharma, Nandita Swetha and many. Trailer raised expectations on this film. Coming to the Story, Kalki is appointed to investigate Shekhar babu’s death and in that process he comes across many surprises. Director did his best in making the film stylishly with effective elevations and background score but failed in narrating the film the way it has to be. Unnecessary scenes make the audience feel as if it’s a lengthy film when it’s actual run-time is 2 hours 20 minutes. Proper editing and crispy narration could have made this film better. Theatrical rights of this film were bought for 11.05 Cr which is a huge amount for star-like Dr.Rajasekhar. The film managed to collect 4.70 Cr share making it a disaster at the box-office.
