LIE, Jaya Janaki Nayaka and Nene Raju Nene Mantri – have finally locked the theaters and dates. All three are releasing on 11th August. Till Monday night, there was hope that dates would be changed. Young actor Nithiin joined the big clash of the Independence day weekend with his next movie Lie which will clash with Boyapati Sreenu’s Jaya Janaki Nayaka and Rana Daggubati’s Nene Raju Nene Mantri.
Hanu Raghavapudi directed the movie and Megha Akash romanced Nithiin in the film which has been shot mostly in USA. The movie wrapped up all the censor formalities and it has been awarded U/A certificate without any cuts. The inside talk says that LIE has a decent first half and it is the interval episode that elevates the film. The second half of Lie has been ok and the climax looks new and decent. On the whole, Lie has been carrying decent buzz from the censor circles.
Boyapati’s Jaya Janaki Nayaka starring Bellamkonda Srinivas and Rakul Preet Singh has done terrific pre-release business. The movie carries the stamp of Boyapati in every frame. His movies generally strike a chord with mass audiences. So, it has edge over the other two movies in Andhra and Ceded territories.
Rana starrer Teja directed Nene Raju Nene Mantri created huge interest due to its terrific trailers. The movie looks quite intense and entertaining. As this is Rana’s immediate film after ‘Baahubali 2’, it has done excellent business in other language markets – Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam. So, this film will bring more revenue than the other in rest of the markets.
