Early reports indicate that Balakrishna’s Lakshhmi Narasimha is ahead in the Sankranthi sweepstakes at the Andhra box-office.

Lakshhmi Narasimha, the police story is being appreciated for its story, presentation and heroism of Balakrishna, the hero. It has taken a fantastic opening all over and is expected to be a long distance winner.

The trouble with Anji that took a good opening in Nizam is that the trade was unsure about the release till the last minute. The film also carries reports that it is outdated and looks archaic.

Meanwhile Varsham that carried good pre-release hype is proving to be an average film. There is nothing 'new' as claimed by the makers and hero Prabhas has a long way to go before he reaches the NTR or Mahesh Babu league.
