Makar Sankrati: Prabhas, Mahesh Babu, Pawan Kalyan and Venkatesh To Vie For Boxoffice Space



Makar Sankrati Telugu Films

 What  a Diwali release  is to Bollywood, Makar Sankranti is  to the  Telugu film industry. Sadly   the auspicious  January 14 date went vacant  in  2021   due to the pandemic. But it looks like the  Telugu  film industry is determined to  make up for lost time.

As many as  four  biggies are lined  for Makar Sankranti 2022. These  are Mahesh Babu’s  Sarkaru Vaari Paata,Prabhas’s Radhe Shyam, Venkatesh-Varun Tej’s  F3 and Pawan  Kalyan’s untitled  Telugu remake  of  the Malayalam film  Ayyappanum Koshiyum.

Interestingly  all the four  projects are very different  from one  another in  content and  intent. Mahesh Babu’s   Sarkaru Vaari Paata is a social-awakening  message-oriented  film,  a genre he  says he  will explore more deeply now to  use his star power  to  make  a difference  to society. Prabhas’s Radhe Shyam is a pure  love story, a  first  in the Superstar’s career. Pawan Kalyan’s  film is an  action thriller while Vankatesh’s F3 is an  out-and-out comedy.

If Covid  permits,  there will be an  ample  bandwidth  for all four films to flourish this coming Makar Sankranti.
