Why Chiru & Balayya Failed To Connect?
Megastar Chiranjeevi has made his re-entry into films after a long gap and scored a brownie. His comeback movie Khaidi No. 150 became a 100+ crore hit at box office. At the same time, Nandamuri Balakrishna’s Gautamiputra Satakarni released amidst huge hype and the film thrilled history lovers. Guess what, there is a connectivity issue for both these heroes now.
Expected to take small screen by a storm, Chiranjeevi turned host for the latest season of Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu, but the stint has flopped big time. While programs like Jackpot are getting better ratings, MEK is failing to get 2+ TRP ratings, proving that Chiru’s charisma is ending for a disaster on small screen.
Other day when Gautamiputra Satakarni was screened on TV, the film got just 2.52 TRP ratings while it’s rival on other channel Satamanam Bhavati fetched 15.5+ TRP ratings. That proves all the hype and hoopla round Balayya’s movie during the time of release have failed to created sparks on TV. Well, where did our top heroes went wrong when it comes to TV? Why did they fail to connect with home audiences?
Some experts say, Chiranjeevi is in a hitch whether to be natural on TV or just act like he’s doing a silver screen. That’s not bringing the best out of his comedy timing, emotions and natural reactions. Coming to Satakarni, they say that already the film was watched by the maximum in theatres and all that hype didn’t long last that it will click on television.
