Setback for Karthi

Setback for Karthi

Karthi is really going through a rough patch in Telugu.  After 'Oopiri', he had an opportunity to grow bigger and stronger in the Telugu market.  

But after two years, he has found himself in a soup.  'Chinna Babu', despite being a family entertainer and belonging to a safe genre, is a disaster, running losses to the tune of 50 percent or thereabouts.  Collecting a share of not more than Rs. 2.75 CR after 5 days (in the Telugu States), the Pandiraj-directed movie is a damp squib.  

'Khakee', released last year, was a very good cop drama.  But the film couldn't collect a share of more than Rs. 6 CR.  While this is decent, it should have made more.  And Mani Ratnam's 'Cheliyaa', earlier in the Summer of 2017, was a total washout.
