Tollywood report card - rare hits and several flops

At the end of the year, there is no way to hide the disappointment. 2016 wasn't a good year for Tollywood. The success rate wasn't flattering at all. Only a few movies made it big at the box-office among them 'Praktan' claims the first place. Among the Puja releases, 'Byomkesh O Chiriyakhana' enjoyed a great collection. Made on a limited budget, the film re-established the appeal of 'Byomkesh' as a brand. Among others, 'Eagoler Chokh', 'Saheb Bibi Golaam', 'Bastu Shaap' have garnered positive responses. However, with Feluda, Byomkesh, and Kiriti present at the box-office, the last few weeks of the year brought new hope for Tollywood.
