Why does Sankranti matters for Telugu Cinema?

Regardless of the aforementioned macro factors such as the growing trend of multiplex viewing, rising disposable incomes, and micro factors such as exposure to world cinema in a certain audience demographic, Sankranti has remained an event over the years. The festive vibe of the Telugu states in the 2nd and 3rd week of January is invigorated by movie releases coupled with a week-long holiday. From a fiscal viewpoint, consumers possess high spending power during the season, attributed to the harvest, thereby making it an ideal time for releasing films.

A 2015 survey estimated that 46 lakh families, representing 62% of Andhra Pradesh’s population, are reliant on the agriculture and allied sectors. A demographic as wide as it cannot be overlooked, and hence filmmakers chase a Sankranti release to leverage the festive vibe and disposable income. Beyond the financial viability, the festival offers, irresistible energy and joy surround Sankranti releases, the first major releases of the year.
