Mahesh Babu and Allu Arjun began the festival fight long before Sankranti. The teasers for both the films also released recently, garnering a lot more interest in the projects.
Initially, Mahesh Babu lagged behind, while Allu Arjun released super hit songs and various looks from his film. But Mahesh Babu surprised everyone by releasing his teaser first. In Sarileru Neekevvaru, Mahesh Babu can be seen as an army major, that has generated a lot of interest among fans.
When Ala Vaikuntapuramlo teaser released recently, the teaser got a lot of slack for its routine feel. The teaser feels like a mix of Trivikram’s old movies Attarintiki Daaredi, Son Of Satyamurthy and Agnyathavasi.
Looking at the teaser, the film looks like Trivikram is going the same way he did with Agnyathavaasi. One is left wondering why Allu Arjun would have taken up a film that feels so similar to an already tried and tested formula.
All in all, Mahesh Babu now has the edge, with his teaser generating a positive response from all corners. Clearly, he has bowled out Allu Arjun’s teaser with a better response, which is a huge stroke for the film.
