More than half a dozen notable films were released in December and only MCA was able to set the cash registers ringing.

Sumanth’s Malli Raava made some buzz but couldn’t escape a flop.
Akkineni Akhil’s re-launch was way better than his debut film. However, it failed to recover the high production cost and ended up as a big dud in terms of return on investment.
Allu Sirish’s ambitious science fiction thriller Okka Kshanam also couldn’t get going in spite of decent word of mouth.
2 Countries starring Sunil was a non-starter and turned out to be one of the biggest flops in the actor’s career.
There are a few other films like B.Tech Babulu, Juliet Lover of Idiot, Seetha Ramuni Kosam and E Ee that tanked without a trace.
Trade is hoping that coming Sankranthi will be as fruitful as recent Sankranthi seasons where Tollywood box office had witnessed multiple super hits.
