2012 has been a bad year for Dubbed movies so far, while it has been largely fantastic for the Telugu Film Industry. This is almost an exact reversal of 2011, where Telugu films languished and dubbed films had a good run. ‘Roudram’, ‘Snehithudu’, ‘Malligadu’, ‘Renigunta’, ‘Khiladi’, ‘Sakuni’, etc have released in a big way in Telugu, but none of them made an impact.
With some big ticket dubbed flicks like ‘Mask’ and Surya’s ‘Duplicate’ getting ready for release in the remaining half of this year, it remains to be seen if they can break the streak of flops and turn in a decent profit. Things do look exciting for straight Telugu releases however, with some promising big ticket items coming up from most of the top heroes.
