Sita Ramam, Bimbisara, and Karthikeya 2 were three blockbusters produced by the Telugu cinema industry in the month of August 2022. Three major blockbusters from the Telugu film industry have likely been released at the box office for the first time in many years.
The three aforementioned movies have surpassed 200 crores at the global box office for Telugu movies for the first time since Mahesh Babu’s “Sarkaru Vaari Paata” was released in May of this year. The movie “Karthikeya 2,” starring actor Nikhil Siddhartha, is topping the pack in August, accounting for about 35% of the global gross box office.
In 10 days, the epic action-adventure movie has made 74.2 crores, including 63.8 crores domestically. The film received overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics and viewers upon release, which led to strong box office results. The movie “Karthikeya 2” also becomes Nikhil’s highest-earning project.
The period romance drama film “Sita Ramam,” directed by Hanu Raghvapudi, is this month’s second-highest grossing Telugu film. The most well-liked movie of the month, starring Dulquer Salmaan, Mrunal Thakur, and Rashmika Mandanna, has made almost 66 crores in box office revenue so far in 18 days and is still going strong.
The third major Telugu blockbuster of the month is “Bimbisara,” a time-travel fantasy action movie starring Nandamuri Kalyan Ram. It was one of the most anticipated tier-2 Telugu films, and it delivered as expected, becoming Kalyan Ram’s highest-grossing film of all time. Released on the same day as “Sita Ramam,” the Mallidi Vassishta-directed film has so far made about 60 crores in revenue, falling just behind the first.
While the three films’ combined budget is roughly 80 crores, their current global gross is currently at 201 crores. All three films’ distributor profits total over 61 crores globally, which is a huge accomplishment for them.
