'Bangaru Padam' in dire straits

The Telugu film industry is one of the biggest with 150 to 200 films releasing in a year. Every film faces stiff competition in finding theaters for release. Now, the movie 'Bangaru Padam', directed and produced by N.H. Prasad is facing such predicament. The movie was released on December 4 and ran barely for a week. The makers allege that it was deliberately hunted out of theaters to provide space for big films. Now, one has to wait and watch how the industry reacts to this situation.
