Eagle: Telugu Film with Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja Takes a Unique Approach to Ticket Pricing
The Telugu film industry is abuzz with anticipation as “Eagle,” starring Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja, gears up for its release. Directed by Karthik Ghattamaneni, the film has garnered attention not only for its star-studded cast but also for its unique approach to ticket pricing.
In a departure from the prevailing trend of maximizing profits through price hikes in the first week of release, the team behind “Eagle” has opted for regular ticket prices. By capping ticket prices at Rs. 200 for multiplexes and Rs. 150 for single screens in Telangana, the team aims to attract more footfalls on the opening weekend.
This decision, although unconventional, is expected to pay off by drawing larger audiences to theaters on the first day. Despite the possibility of setting the maximum ticket price higher, the team believes that refraining from doing so will create a more inclusive environment for moviegoers, ultimately resulting in successful openings.
The current scenario presents significant challenges in enticing audiences to theaters on the opening day, a concern that the team behind “Eagle” is keenly aware of. While Ravi Teja’s star power may mitigate some of these concerns, recent underperformances like “Ravanasura” and “Tiger Nageswara Rao” have underscored the importance of strategic decisions.
The success of “Hanuman,” which thrived at the box office without the need for a ticket hike, serves as a testament to the effectiveness of this strategy. With February typically witnessing a slowdown due to exams, the makers of “Eagle” have made a calculated decision regarding ticket prices, despite their confidence in the film’s content.
Starring Anupama Parameswaran and Kavya Thapar as heroines, with Navadeep, Avasarala Srinivas, Ajay Ghosh, and others in supporting roles, “Eagle” faces competition from films like “Yatra 2,” “Lal Salaam,” and “True Lover.” However, with its innovative approach to ticket pricing and a talented ensemble cast, “Eagle” is poised to make its mark at the box office and captivate audiences across Telugu cinema.
