This is the time to look at the half-yearly progress of Tollywood as we have come to the end of June. The first half of 2015 has seen many highs and lows.
Although none of the movies featuring top stars like Prabhas, Pawan Kalyan and Mahesh Babu released until now, other big stars like Allu Arjun and NTR have released their movies.
NTR came back on to the success track with 'Temper'. The movie joined the list of coveted club of 40 crore rupees. But the biggest grosser in the first half of this year is 'S/o Satyamurthy' which has joined, according to trade experts, the club of Rs 50 crore. But the real winner is not Allu Arjun.
The one hero who brought more profits to the distributors and makers is Nandamuri Kalyan Ram. In terms of collections Kalyan Ram’s ‘Pataas’ didn't reach to the level of NTR's 'Temper' and Allu Arjun's 'S/o Satyamurthy', but the Return On Investment (ROI) is much higher than all the movies released this year so far.
As far as ROI is concerned, Kalyan Ram has got upper hand on Allu Arjun.
