The first half of Tollywood ended on a highly positive note, bringing in terrific revenue for all big movies.

Films like Rajamouli's "Baahubali 2" have also expanded Telugu cinema market vastly.

Hence, Tollywood is betting high on the forthcoming big star movies that are slated for release in the second half of this year, 2017.

Mid-range movies
Nani's "Ninnu Kori" that is releasing on July 7 flags off this six months season, this year. July will witness the releases of Gopichand's "Gauthama Nanda", Sekhar Kammula - Varun Tej's "Fidaa" and multi-starrer "Samanthakamani".

In August, several interesting medium-range starrers like Nithin's "LIE", Bellamkonda - Boyapati's "Jaya Janaki Nayaka" and Naga Chaitanya's thriller movie "Yuddham Saranam" will hit the screens.

300 Cr betting on Dussera
The months of July and August will see only the releases from mid-range stars, but the real biggies will be making dhamaka at box-office in the month of September.

Sai Dharam Tej's "Jawaan" is slated for September 1. NTR Jr's "Jai Lava Kusa" will be the first big movie to release during the crucial Dussera holidays.

And the biggest of all Mahesh Babu's "Spyder" hits the screens in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam languages simultaneously on September 27. Goes without saying, more than Rs 150 Cr business rides on this biggie.

Deepavali - Christmas period
Generally, flow of releases tend to subside post Dussera festival. But this year, there will be steady releases.

The much-awaited biggie Pawan Kalyan - Trivikram's untitled movie is likely to be hitting the screens for Deepavali. The film alone will do Rs 125 Cr business.

Nagarjuna's "Raju Gari Gadhi 2", Vijay's dubbed movie "Adirindhi", Ravi Teja's "Raja The Great" and Nani's "MCA" are among the slew of movies that would come during Deepavali - Christmas season.

With so many films lined up, naturally, the industry is hopeful of having a good financial balance sheet in the second half.
