Directed by Praveen Sattaru, ‘Guntur Talkies’ was released on March 4 and remained as a trendsetter. It has won the critical acclaim too. It may be mentioned here that Praveen Sattaru had bagged national award with his film ‘
’. His latest film Guntur Talkies has proved that it is a ‘big’ movie among the small budget flicks and created a record. Though our film titled ‘Guntur (the name of a town in Andhra Pradesh) Talkies’, the Telangana audiences made it a big hit and there is no regional disparity when it comes to a film and the revenue collections proved that our film is a big hit. Praveen Sattaru claimed that some people had criticised him that my film may not be accepted in Telangana state because of the title. But the collections’ record is a perfect answer to such criticisms. Over 4,53,228 audiences watched the film in just 10 days, and the gross collections for these 10 days is Rs 2,01,22,713. I thank the Telangana audiences for making our film such a big hit. When my film was such a hit in Telangana, definitely we could assume that it would be a bigger hit in Andhra Pradesh. I thank the Telugu audiences in general for making my film a big hit.
